Emmy Winners 2012

Posted by

Ahh, the Emmy Awards.  What a magical time of year.  For those of you who aren’t quite literally drowning in schoolwork, you might not have appreciated tuning in for that two-hour block of television as much as I did, but I’m sure you enjoyed it to some degree nonetheless.  It’s the perfect marriage of my two loves- television and topical humor.  This year was moderately funny, with a backstage opening skit featuring all our favorite babes of television (in robes), jabs at Mitt Romney, and Facebook’s failing stock.  The truth is, Jimmy Kimmel was pretty tame, and it’s the host who makes or breaks it.  It wasn’t his best year.

So, let’s get on with it… My thoughts on The Big Ones:


Outstanding Drama Series Nominees:

  • Homeland (Winner)
  • Boardwalk Empire
  • Breaking Bad
  • Downton Abbey
  • Game of Thrones
  • Mad Men


Perhaps it’s just my outside perspective that makes Breaking Bad feel like a truly epic cultural phenomenon, but I was surprised to see Homeland take this one.  I’ve never seen it, though reviews suggest that if you miss one episode, you’re screwed, because it’s intense!   I think this one is going on my mental instant queue.


Outstanding Comedy Series Nominees:

  • Modern Family (Winner)
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • Curb your Enthusiasm
  • Girls
  • 30 Rock
  • Veep


Modern Family really swept up again this year, and to be frank, I’m really surprised to see Curb on this list of nominees.  Please, don’t get me wrong, Curb is one of my favorite shows of all time- but its popularity seems to be diminishing as the seasons go on, and I haven’t heard much buzz about it at all recently.


Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series Nominees:

  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “Veep” (Winner)
  • Zooey Deschanel, “New Girl”
  • Lena Dunham, “Girls”
  • Edie Falco, “Nurse Jackie”
  • Tina Fey, “30 Rock”
  • Melissa McCarthy, “Mike and Molly”
  • Amy Poehler, “Parks and Recreation”


In my very humble opinion, Melissa McCarthy was absolutely in second place for this award.  And I’m not just saying that because she played Sookie in Gilmore Girls.  If you haven’t yet had the pleasure, look her up.  Although there’s no doubt Julia deserved this one.


Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

  • Jon Cryer, “Two and a Half Men” (Winner)
  • Alec Baldwin, “30 Rock”
  • Don Cheadle, “House of Lies”
  • Louis CK, “Louie”
  • Larry David, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”
  • Jim Parsons, “The Big Bang Theory”


I have this strange hang up about never really getting that into female actresses, but for some reason the male lead actor category is always my favorite.  Jim Parsons  won this one last year, most deservedly, but this year Jon Cryer being recognized for yet another amazing season of Two and a Half Men.  Happy as I was for Duckie, I was outraged that Louis CK didn’t walk away with this one!  (Although, he did win Best Comedy Writing for Louie, which is something.)


Lots of notable moments this year- like Seth MacFarlane missing the microphone on stage.  “This is what happens when you don’t come to rehearsal” he admits.  My favorite moment of the night was Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Amy Poehler swapping acceptance speeches, where Julia begins to thank NBC, Parks and Rec, and her two beautiful boys- when the camera cuts to Amy running up to the stage to give her back her crumpled sheet of paper.


I’m never good at making mental lists of whom I think will win the awards; I’m just an innocent bystander, I really only have the nerve to work up an opinion once things are all said and done.  What about all of you?  Did everyone get what they deserved?  And the most important question of all… how good did  Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara look in her super sexy teal number?
