2012 Emmy Awards : Homeland ruining the win streak

2012 Emmy Awards : Homeland ruining the win streak
It's about a chance to provide up on the Emmys. Really, truly, once and for all. The press and the country must quit focusing. The tv market could display its solidarity by giving up all the statuettes, heaving them into a yawning crucible and smelting them. The fluid discarded steel could be recast into one Prius-sized Emmy to be distributed by Julia-Louis Dreyfus and Jon Stewart, who were the only individuals to demonstrate edgy verve onstage during an otherwise hopeless, foreseen display organised by that deadpan cipher of evening, Jimmy Kimmel.

Stewart, recognizing the Tenth successive Emmy for excellent wide range sequence for “The Everyday Show,” recognized the maddening ridiculousness of the work out.

“Years from now, when the World is just a losing husk and aliens check out, they will see a box of these,” Stewart said, having his Emmy aloft, “and they will know just how foreseen these [expletive shows] are.”

So let us get the actual bit of information out of the way before we go returning to the dirge: Don Draper passed away in a enemy attack!

“Mad Men,” which won best dilemma sequence for previous times four decades, dropped to Showtime’s weird CIA thrillfest “Homeland,” in which Claire Danes goes a little crazy while trying to type through gossip both in the area and in her go. Danes won best celebrity in a dilemma and her co-star, Damian Lewis, prolonged the winless skills of Draper himself, Jon Hamm. “Homeland,” which also snagged an prize for composing and is Showtime’s first best-series prize champion, throw a pallid Langleyesque mild on a wedding that has had nowadays the art-deco gloss of Madison Road.

Burnishing that investment feel were two females who won for enjoying a actual prospective v. p. and a bogus actual v. p.. Julianne Moore won best cause celebrity in a miniseries or TV film for enjoying Debbie Palin in HBO’s “Game Modify,” which also won best miniseries or TV film. Julia Louis-Dreyfus won best cause celebrity in a funny sequence for enjoying Vice Chief executive Selina She, the bumbling sparkplug a pulse rate from the obama administration in HBO’s sour half-hour Beltway parody “Veep.”

Louis-Dreyfus, gathering her third profession Emmy, started studying co-nominee Amy Poehler’s popularity conversation. The two females, interesting in a subversive draw they ready themselves, offered one of the few entertaining, well-timed minutes in an otherwise shateringly scripted evening larded with Kimmel’s wan pieces. Display A: After “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” did not win best wide range sequence, Kimmel requested protection to carry his actual mother and father from the audience to be able to penalize them for relaxing that he could accomplish any desire he desired. Get it? No? That is because it’s not really a laugh. It was a empty, held nuisance.

The other big winners were tiresomely predictable, and predictability makes for really, really, really bad television. The much-heralded Lena Dunham, the 26-year-old creator and star of HBO’s buzzy “Girls,” lost all three of her solo nominations within the first 45 minutes of the show. ABC’s “Modern Family” won its third consecutive Emmy for comedy series, and its supporting actors, Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet, exercised their “Why am I winning this again?” faces. Five of the first six acting awards went to performers who had already won once for their roles. These winners all seemed chagrined or perplexed, and spent a precious portion of their speeches apologizing to their overlooked — and, in all instances, more deserving — co-nominees. Even Jon Cryer’s wife seemed baffled when Cryer won best leading actor in a comedy for “Two and a Half Men.”

When he was handed his second Emmy, Cryer said, “Something has clearly gone terribly wrong.”

Not “something.”


Speaking of Cryer, is there an assemblage of words more depressing than “the season premiere of ‘Two and a Half Men’?”

But back to the pressing question: How can TV people make for such dismal TV? It’s not enough to have one or two nice moments in a three-hour telecast that rewards many of the same faces year after year. The show was front-loaded with comedy awards, then transitioned to drama and saved the miniseries and TV-movie categories — and therefore the bigger and stodgier stars (Kevin Costner won lead actor in a miniseries or movie for “Hatfields and McCoys”) — for the third hour, when viewers had presumably expired from sheer boredom. The director of the Emmy telecast won for directing the Tonys, and his charmless, overly long acceptance speech from inside the director’s truck illustrated everything that’s wrong with these shows: They navel-gaze without the proper volume of irony or rollicking self-awareness.

Comedian Louis C.K. — beloved for his sour wryness, and for being above the glitzy blandness of Hollywood — had two chances to give the show the Heimlich after he won best writing for a comedy series and also for a variety special.

“Well,” he said, “I won an Emmy just now so . . . I’m just gonna thank people.”

See, that’s exactly what we don’t want you to do. Keep that in mind next year, stars — although, ideally, none of us will be watching.

The 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards "Emmys 2011"

The 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards "Emmys 2011"
TheWrap as predicted, voters gave the best comedy and drama series award for "Modern Family" and "Mad Men" on Sunday, 63rd Annual Emmy Awards - but they also threw in some disturbing welcome, especially by honoring the recently deceased "Friday Night Lights."

Voters face a dilemma this year: Should the honor shown consistently as "Modern Family" and "Mad Men" or find new fat as "Boardwalk Empire" and "Game of Thrones"? Or return to the small-seen but beloved "Friday Night Lights," which ended his season last race?

We chose an elegant combination shows the new durable and recognition, with a special mention for "Lights."

"Modern Family" has claimed five awards, including its second consecutive year for comedy. "Mad Men" was the fourth consecutive victory 's for the drama of her only award of the night.

Hosted by Jane Lynch and produced by Mark Burnett, the television was one of the fastest, jump the Emmy ceremony just in time to arrive. At first, it seemed a predictable event, the winner of last years best comedy, "Modern Family," claiming the top four awards. Then Jim Parsons won his second consecutive award for outstanding comedy series actor - first prize is a night and a "Modern Family did not have the condition E 'started to look for even more choices such as cash continues ..

But then things got interesting.

Newcomer Melissa McCarthy, fresh from stealing the summer blockbuster "bridesmaids" were put in a coup of his winning comedy series, an excellent actor in his first season of "Mike and Molly." Vince previous winners Tina Fey and Edie Falco.

He started his race winning shocked: "Friday Night Lights" has won two big prizes, Jason Katims, holding Series Excellent dramatic writing, and Kyle Chandler High score a protagonist in a drama. (I was impressed, Jon Hamm, who seemed a sure thing, "Mad Men" with the three-time winner Bryan Cranston denied "Breaking Bad", this year).

The "lights" earns a way to recognize all five seasons of the popular NBC series, which has prevented the cancellation of a single agreement in which the episode was broadcast on DirecTV.

"Mildred Pierce" seemed like it was going to dominate their categories, as the HBO mini-series was the most nominated program with 21 nominations overall. But he was beaten repeatedly by the Abbey of PBS "Downton".

While Kate Winslet won for best actress and actor Guy Pearce for exceptional support in the category movie or miniseries, "Abbey" also marked.

Won outstanding miniseries or movie, while Julian Fellowes won for Best Screenplay, Maggie Smith won for Best Supporting Actress, and Brian Percival won Best Director of the mini-series or film arena. "Downton Abbey" was nominated for 11 Emmy Awards.

Some victories have been more expected.

Juliana Margulies, widely predicted, scored Actress in a Drama Series for "The Good Wife". Voters recognized the bold new "Game of Thrones" by recognizing the landscape devouring Peter Dinklage as Best Actor in a Drama Series.

Margo Martindale won Best Supporting Actor in a drama for FX "legitimate" - not the biggest surprise, given the buzz for her performance in the open category.

Martin Scorsese won for his outstanding leadership for a drama series, "Boardwalk Empire," which was nominated for 18 awards. It is also clarified the Emmys last weekend creative arts.

After losing last year for the first time in the history of the category of "senior leader" of CBS 'The Amazing Race, "he said again the Emmy for outstanding reality competition.

And an almost obligatory winning "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" won its ninth consecutive Emmy for outstanding variety, music or comedy series "- a price that may be necessary renamed in his honor.

Prices for the comedy "Modern Family" including best actor for Julie Bowen, best supporting actor Ty Burrell, Michael Spiller, Best Director and Best Screenplay by Jeffrey Richman and show co-creator Steve Levitan.

Burrell's victory was particularly impressive and shows why he won over three other "Modern Family" candidates. He defeated the winner of last year, his castmate Eric Stone Street, and had campaigned for Ed O'Neill, and named.

In a show of unity, to provide all the actors and actresses performing in the categories of support rather than a fight over which of them are considered to be the leader.
