Sound off in the comments to let us know what you think of the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards results!

  • Zack

    Its so weird because my parents are there in person and I’m watching it at home!

  • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

    It’s weird not seeing Glee on there.

    • Gary65

      Rightfully so too. Season 1 deserved Emmys. Season 2-3 did not.

    • Sup

      ……Because there are dozens of other shows on network and cable television that achieve a much higher level of entertainment. The past few seasons have been a mess and to award such a series while so many others have put a deeper level of passion into their craft would be simply insulting to the rest of modern television.

  • Guest

    I can’t believe Cat Deeley did not win Outstanding Host. She is the best!

  • ladybirds

    This is soo exciting!

  • Gary65

    i have to say, I am ecstatic about Damian Lawis winning. I know Bryan Cranston was stunning in BB, and probably deserved it more, but this is Damian’s first big role and he has exploded onto the scene with nominations in so many award shows, none of which he has one. I have been following him since he starred in the stellar Band of Brothers and I could not be happier for him right now. Congrats Damian :D You 100% deserved it.

  • Hugo Weasley

    how is it possible for damian lewis to have beat out jon hamm, peter dinklage,and bryan cranston?? this whole homeland thing is getting out of hand! Game of thrones, boardwalk empire and breaking bad should be raking in the emmys.

    • http://hypable.com/author/jeremy-baril/ Jeremy Baril

      He’s fantastic.

    • Gary65

      Because he was AMAZING!!!! Bryan Cranston prob deserves it more but he won it before and will prob win it again. Let someone else have their moment

      • Hugo Weasley

        but but but what about steve buscemi and jon hamm?

        • Gary65

          Steve Buscemi, I’ll give you(personally, he was 3rd for me behind BC & DL) but if there’s any show that is suffering from extreme over-representation at Emmys(Modern Family aside), it’s Mad Men. Homeland is an amazing show and the breakout hit of last year. Let them have their moment

    • http://www.eigakanthemovietheater.blogspot.com Jenny Leigh

      The only thing I learned from these Emmys is that apparently Homeland is a show I should watch if it beat out Game, Breaking, and Downton. Boardwalk too, but I don’t watch it yet :).

  • Gary65

    Plus Maggie Smith & Aaron Paul won, which makes it even more awesome :D

  • GoodGollyMissMolly

    Project Runway, the voice and sytycd are all waaaay better than amazing race…

  • http://hypable.com/author/jeremy-baril/ Jeremy Baril

    So thrilled for Homeland. A truly amazing show.

    • Sup

      And completely deserved. There isn’t a second you watch the show and aren’t captivated with the amazing storylines and performances.

    • hpatdh33

      Season two in one week!!!!

  • Gary65

    My God was Max Greenfield robbed or what?

  • Hugo Weasley

    please let it be sherlock! :(

  • Guest

    Can you imagine how awkward/hilarious it would have been if Lucy Liu had to give Stephen Moffat the award for best writing for Sherlock?

    • Guest

      Whoops, Steven Moffat* Really dumb mistake.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000531768639 Courtney King

    Sherlock :(

  • Hugo Weasley

    Just when I thought the Emmy’s were legit, they go and do this….

  • Delena

    So glad to see that Game Change won a bunch of stuff. Never seem Homeland, but it beat a bunch of shows I think are fantastic, so it must be great.

    • Gary65

      You are missing out in so many ways, I can’t even tell you. Season 2 premiere is this Sunday. Run off season 1 this week. It’s only 12 eps of pure AWESOMENESS!!! :D

  • http://twitter.com/MagicNeverEnds6 Jessica S.

    Really upset Sherlock didn’t win anything.

    • d3erudite

      Same here. What’s more upsetting is that Doctor who wasn’t nominated for anything.

      • http://twitter.com/MagicNeverEnds6 Jessica S.

        That’s very true.

  • ber

    Maggie Smith and Aaron Paul!!!!!

  • JCman7

    How Sherlock and Benedict didn’t win is beyond me…seriously Game Change and Hatfield and McCoys??? How are those better… I don’t get it

    • elskokan

      Game Change was incredible! Dynamic cast and incredible character depth.

  • Just Sayin’

    So who won best comedy series? There was no winner listed.

    • Sup

      Who do you think…… lol

      Like always, it was Modern Family.

    • Megan

      Most likely Modern Family

  • http://hypable.com/author/jeremy-baril/ Jeremy Baril

    Jon Cryer fail.

  • Jessica

    Wooo for Game Change!! It’s one of my favorite movies of all times. Woody Harrelson deserved best actor too. It was just so good. But Parks and Rec was robbed! Seriously it’s a much more intelligent show and one with more heart as well, then Modern Family (which I do like). It was a pretty standard night of awards all and all though. This is just the way the Emmys are.

  • d3erudite

    I think its just stupid that Vampire Diaries hasn’t been nominated for any Emmys since the show started .

    • Sif

      Please tell me you’re joking. No show on The CW will ever even be nominated. Despite dedicated fandoms, compared to other television dramas, those shows are just not up to par with the level of writing and acting abilities. The Emmys would be a laughing stock if a CW show won anything, ever.

  • http://www.eigakanthemovietheater.blogspot.com Jenny Leigh

    Downton :( I am sad for you.
    But seriously, I apparently am missing out on Homeland.

  • http://twitter.com/Cheishya Keisya Prasetyawan

    Why??? Sherlock didn’t win? JUST NO.

  • http://twitter.com/akacj7 Caroline J.

    the only real surprises to me were Damian Lewis for Best Actor/Drama, Homeland for Best Drama, and Aaron Paul over Giancarlo Esposito for Supporting Actor/Drama… only because Esposito had been heralded so highly in the run-up.

  • http://twitter.com/akacj7 Caroline J.

    Amy Poehler saves the day once again with a hilarious bit in cooperation with Comedy Actress winner Julia Louis Dreyfuss. It never gets old and I look forward to her shenanigans every year.

  • Sabrina

    I’m a bit sad that Mayim Bialik didn’t win but really upset Sherlock didn’t win anything! well i guess we have to wait until Martin Freeman gets an Oscar for the Hobbit or something ;)

  • http://twitter.com/Djacruks Simone Hansen

    Disappointed that Sherlock did not win one category. And a little disappointed that
    Remedial Chaos Theory did not win for Best Comedy Writing either.

  • CliveRogan

    I am mildly disapointed that Sherlock didn’t win, but it’s completely understandable with Homeland in the room which should have won all the awards, even the comedy ones. I think someone made a joke in it one time so it’d be completely justified.

  • Esmeblabbed

    No Community or Doctor Who :(

  • upper_westsider

    VERY HAPPY for Homeland, Game Change, Boardwalk Empire, Maggie Smith, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep). Maggie Smith is the best part of Downton Abbey and I think Veep is one of the funniest shows ever. Only disappointment was nothing for Sherlock.

  • WhatTheGrace

    Max Greenfield SO deserved that
    Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series award… seriously what would New Girl be without Schmidt!!! And only 1 win to Breaking Bad????? They were robbed!

  • Erika

    I still cannot believe that Game of Thrones wasn’t nominated for outstanding writing or directing with Blackwater. I know Homeland is great, but Game of Thrones deserved more noms in the main categories (though they did win the most Emmys – all 6 in the arts)

  • stupid_shiny_vanquish_owner

    Shameless is far overlooked. William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum both deserve emmy noms.

  • Jason

    Sherlock. It’s the only reason I bothered watching and- nada. :(

  • http://theresabloginmysoup.blogspot.ca/ Kate Pawson Studer

    Anybody else sad that Girls didn’t receive any Emmy love? I adore that show. Lena Dunham is a force of nature and an inspiration!

  • Mack

    Who gives a shit about the emmys?
