2015 Emmy Award Winners

Los Angeles: September 21, 2015

The Emmy Awards were presented last night in mostly boring televised presentation on Fox. Filled with in-jokes and close ups of flavor of the month TV performers the one good thing was that Modern Family didn’t win again this year as it does most years.

Ray Donovan, Emmy Nominations-The Latestwhich does happen to be one of the best shows on TV was also sadly ignored.

Viola Davis became the first non-white actress to claim top drama series acting honors, Jon Hamm finally won for “Mad Men,” and “Game of Thrones” overcame voters’ anti-fantasy resistance to win the most trophies ever in a season.

FULL LIST OF EMMY AWARD WINNERS

Los Angeles. September 19, 2011

The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards were handed out last night in a slow and lackluster presentation that we found both boring and mostly predictable. The reviews for the program have been mostly luke-warm. The New York Post called it one of the “least entertaining shows about entertainment in Emmy history.”

Among the lowlights, Charlie Sheen showed up to prove to the world that he is now clean and sober.

Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” won again for the 9th year, beating out far worthier competition.

Where was Ricky Gervais when you needed him?

In case anyone cares, here is a full list of last night’s winners.

Conan O’Brien Trumps Leno and Letterman with an Emmy Nomination

Conan O’Brien was justifiably rewarded with an Emmy nomination for his short lived tenure on “The Tonight Show” edging out the returning bore conan-obrienJay Leno and the bitter, cynical tone of David Letterman’s “Late Show with David Letterman.”

That seems to be the only bit of excitement at the Emmys this year. It is again the usual suspects.  “The Office,” Tina Fay, Steve Carell, so on and so on, except for the nomination of Edie Falco for “Nurse Betty” and Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton from“Friday Night Lights” who got nods in the lead acting categories, recognition they have both deserved for years now.

“Friday Night Lights” has gone mostly ignored by Emmy voters.  Seems a show about ordinary American lives holds little interest for the Academy.

Also great to see Bill Maher get another nod, though he has been a consistent loser in past year. He currently holds 22 losses. No wins.
