Modern Family dominated the night by taking home 5 awards including Outstanding Comedy Series. Other highlights from the night include, Charlie Sheen wishing the cast of Two and a Half Men good luck for the new season; Michael Bolton dressing up like Jack Sparrow (what was that all about?); an overflow of red dresses; Jane Lynch claiming she’s a lesbian because of the cast of Entourage (not nice, they were looking hot!) and an elaborate opening musical number. Here’s a recap of the night, if you missed the live telecast you can catch the repeat on Zee Cafe tonight at 9pm!
For the second year in a row Modern Family took the award for Outstanding Comedy series, Outstanding Direction, Outstanding writing and Outstanding Supporting Actor & Actress: Ty Burrell as Phil Dunphy and Julie Bowen as Claire Dunphy, Modern Family. The greatest part about this cast is that they all registered themselves under the supporting actors category instead of lead actors, no wonder they make such a on-screen team!
Everyone’s favorite nerd on television Sheldon Cooper aka Jim Parsons took the award for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series while Melissa McCarthy won Outstanding Actress for her role as Molly Flynn in Mike & Molly. The hilarious Amy Poelher led all the nominees in the Outstanding Lead Actress in A Comedy Series category to the stage before the winner was announced and crowned winner by Rob Lowe & Sofia Vergera (both of whom were looking hot!).
Mad Men won Outstanding Drama Series (woohoo!), but Jon Hamm didn’t win as expected. Underdog Kyle Chandler won Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series for Friday Night Lights while Peter Dinklage won Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series for his role as Tyrion Lannister Game of Thrones. The talented Julianna Margulies won Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series for The Good Wife and Margo Martindale took the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress for Justified.
As expected Martin Scorsese won Outstanding Directing for a Drama for Boardwalk Empire, did anyone else even think they would win?
Kate Winslet wearing a stunning Elie Saab gown won for her role as Mildred Pierce in the HBO miniseries, Mildred Pierce, while the UK series which airs on PBS, Downtown Abbey won Outstanding Miniseries.
