Full List Of 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards Winners

Almost a complete shut out for typical Emmy inertia in the top categories. Among last year' s winners in the top 6 comedy and drama categories only Modern Family repeated from last year.

Check out how our viewers did in the predictions. Needless to say, my "predicting last year's winners" method, usually pretty reliable, was routed, going just 1 for 6.

via press release:

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (the “Television Academy”) tonight (Sunday, September 23, 2012) awarded the 2011-2012 Primetime Emmys® for programs and individual achievements on the “64th Primetime Emmy Awards,” a live telecast on the ABC Television Network from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles. Jimmy Kimmel hosted the ceremony and Don Mischer was Executive Producer of the telecast.

In addition to Emmys in 26 categories announced tonight, Emmys in 76 other categories and areas for programs and individual achievements were presented at the Creative Arts Awards on September 15, 2012 from the Nokia Theatre. Additionally, the Governors Award was presented to the “It Gets Better Project™,” an organization devoted to supporting LGBT young people via its website, initiatives and the posting of original videos with messages of empathy, encouragement and hope for a positive future. The awards were tabulated by the independent accounting firm of Ernst & Young LLP.

  • Polar Bear

    1. Seriously? Jon Cryer?
    2. Seriously? Amy Poehler didn’t win?
    3. Seriously? Bryan Cranston lost? (It’s not that I don’t like Damien Lewis, it’s just that I never thought Heisenberg would ever lose.)
    4. Seriously? Modern Family AGAIN?

  • Michael

    Julianne Moore winning her first televised award, since 2003!

  • Dan

    Jon Cryer may be the first person to win both supporting and leading actor for the same role. And Its funny because Kathy Bates first emmy win in over twenty years of being nominated was for a role that Charlie sheen was nominated for but never won.

  • iggy

    Jeez, it’s like it’s a popularity contest or something…..

  • cc

    Terrible show tonight. I tuned out early when it seemed like MF was going to walk with most everything. Coincidence the Emmys were on ABC?

    They can throw awards at the show all they want, I still won’t watch it.

    Interesting how few went to the broadcast networks, let alone even nominated.

  • THE OLD MAN

    YAY Maggie Smith & Jessica Lange + all Modern Family & Game of Thrones wins

  • Hattie

    Surprised Amy Poehler didn’t win – she deserved it.
    Surprised Jon Cryer won – ummmm ok…
    Surprised Modern Family won again – not that the show wasn’t good, but the quality hasn’t been as good as in previous seasons
    Definitely a few shockers thrown in there… Not sure everyone who won really deserved their award (especially in the television acting categories…)

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    The funny thing about tonight’s broadcast was every time they would throw it to commercial the female announcer’s voice would pose a question such as:
    -”Can Mad Man win its 5th Best Drama win to beat out past winners……….?”
    -”Amy Poehler has been nominated 7 times can she win on her 8th?”
    -”Can the Hatfields and McCoys win for best miniseries/movie?”
    -”Can Jon Hamm win an Emmy tonight on his 7th try?”
    -”Will the Big Bang Theory win for Best Comedy series on its 4th try?”
    -”Nobody since Michael J Fox has won the best Comedy Actor 3 times an a row can Jim Parsons be the one?”
    -”Will Kristin Wiig win for her final season on SNL?”

    All of which were followed by something like we’ll find out when we come back.

    The funny thing is all seven times the answer to the question posed was NO!!!!! That lady was a jinx!!!!

    Though once she lead out to commercial saying “Claire Danes has been acting since she was 16 can she win the Best Dramatic Actress Emmy tonight?” The answer to that one was yes.

  • Mark

    Very surprised and happy with some of the results, in terms of comedy Jon Cryer deserved it. He carried two and a half men this season as far as I’m concerned. Ecstatic that homeland did so well, it is a great series and I think it deserved it for sure.

  • OMG

    Modern Family is good. Why is everyone acting like a travesty that it won simply because it won before? Sure it has not been as good as the first two seasons, but compared with that list of nominees, it certainly deserves it.

    The Emmys have spoken, if everyone is so upset we can just set up our own award shows and select our favourites to win. The list up there is probably not my picks, but let it be.

  • Rocco

    Homeland is awesome. Do it TV Addict.

  • Mon

    Yay for Julia Louis Dreyfus of Veep! People should watch her show Veep especially the pilot and season finale. You’ll know why she won outstanding lead actress in a comedy series.

    I prefer Sofia Vergara winning but Julie Bowen is also good. I hope Sofia takes the Golden Globes.

    Best parts of the Emmys were Julia and Amy’s stunt (hilarious!!!) and Tracey Morgan “passing out” on stage prank.

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    cc who said:
    “Terrible show tonight. I tuned out early when it seemed like MF was going to walk with most everything. Coincidence the Emmys were on ABC?”

    It would seam you silly little theory about Modern Family winning 4 on air awards on ABC this year is just that silly, since they won 5 last year when it was broadcast on Fox and 3 two years ago when it was on NBC.

    But you still don’t have to watch it.

  • Polar Bear

    @OMG It’s just that the list of nominees in the comedy series category is garbage. (No Community, Parks, or Louie)

  • Harry

    watched the patriots-ravens football game. way more real…

  • KS

    I bet a thousand bucks that Emmy awards are rigged. I stopped taking them seriously, the minute I came to know LOST won an Emmy Award.

  • silvit

    @KS

    lol. I stopped taking them seriously when they never gave one award to Francis Conroy for her role in 6 Feet Under. That was a real travesty, especially considering the actresses who won it instead of her.

  • Networkman

    I am actually happy about Jon Cryer winning. I don’t know why he didn’t think more highly of himself and felt he was undeserving. He was really funny this year. The material given to him really showcased his strengths and he kept the show together. People also need to remember it all comes down to the particular episodes that are submitted for the nominees. Voters may have actually laughed out loud watching the wackiness from Jon.

    Lastly, I thought the show was boring. Jimmy was just ok. I expected more from him. And the material for the presenters were lame was more. Also when they showed the clips for the leading actress in a drama, I thought the performance from Glenn Close was much stronger than that of Claire Danes.

  • Networkman

    So happy that Julianne Moore won an Emmy! She is an amazing actress and since she has yet to win an Oscar, I loved her finally being recognized and getting this win.

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    Modern Family haters you don’t have to watch it, it’s a ratings monster without YOU watching, and it’s time Sofia won, I’m sick of Julie Bowen winning. GO HOMELAND!
