Not only did Mad Men, the excellent Matthew Weir-produced drama about a 1960s New York Ad Agency, not win the Outstanding Drama Series Emmy, the series failed to win a single Emmy – 0-17. That caused a number of Twitter Trends, including “0-17” and the latest one which is just simply “Mad Men.” When it […]
If you were watching the 2012 Emmy Awards while in Oakland, California, and thinking “That’s an LA thing; there’s no connection to Oakland,” you’re totally wrong. The work of two Oaklanders – Tom Hanks and John Landgraf – was featured among victories by the producers of Homeland, Modern Family, and Game Change. If you’re thinking […]
The 2012 Emmy Awards is history, and the results are full of surprises, as well as many expected outcomes. Overall, Jimmy Kimmel was OK as host, but the bit about arresting his parents was not very funny at all. Homeland, Modern Family, and Game Change topped the list of winning series. But great programs like […]
To a much-deserved standing ovation, Michael J. Fox was given the honor of presenting the Emmy Award for the Outstanding Comedy Series. That went to Modern Family, which, with Homeland and Game Change, was the star of the evening. And with that, the 2012 Emmy Awards is history. Now it’s time to see what everyone […]

Wow. Another shocker: Claire Daines wins Outstanding Actress In Drama Series for Homeland, beating out Elizabeth Moss of Mad Men, this blogger’s favorite. Homeland‘s making a statement in the 2012 Emmy Awards
Wow. Did not see Damien Lewis of Homeland coming. He just pissed off the Emmys by winning over Brian Cranston of Breaking Bad and Jon Hamm of Mad Men. That was a total upset. The Emmys audience looked like someone stole their lunch money.
The writing team of Homeland – Alex Gansa, Executive Producer Howard Gordon, Executive Producer Michael Cuesta, Executive Producer, Gideon Raff, Executive Producer, Avi Nir, Executive Producer – just got the Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing, Drama Series.

For some reason, the Emmy Awards website producers didn’t (I started to use the word “failed”) to post the 2011 Emmy Award winners list as one long go, that a blogger could copy and paste part of, and then link to. Instead, the Emmy Awards’ site has pages for each category as well as photos […]
