Full List Of 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards Winners

Categories: 1-Featured,Emmy Awards

September 23rd, 2012

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.

    HOMELAND! Well Deserved wins!

  • Joseph A

    1st Gratz to Juliane Moore, who has had a ton of nominations 4 Oscars, 6 Golden Globes with 1 win, 6 Screen Actor nominations with 1 win.
    Also with the bulk of her work not being on TV its not a surprise this is her 1st Emmy.
    ++
    The rest of the wins all made some sense , and you can easily argue a win for Jon Cryer,
    ++
    My only questionable win during the telecast was for Reality Host , I would not have given this to Tom Bergeron , but would have chosen Cat Deeley instead, the only reason I can see Tom winning would be as a lifetime award due to his age and the popularity of the show.

  • Shabbir

    This awards are so fixed. Cant believe the winners. Just call it Awards for Modern family and friends. sheesh.

    The same people/shows are winning all the time.

  • TVMAN

    Homeland deserves every award it gets. It’s such an amazing show

  • joss

    shame shame shame i am numb who is that clown Damien Lewis???? another year of Modern Family show blehhh…..

  • Joe

    BB & GoT are the best

  • Flame

    Jon Cryer won an Emmy? Feel like crying now…

  • Dodge Hickey

    Really happy to hear about Damian Lewis, been following him since Band of Brothers and glad he is getting regconition….I was however surprised with Breaking Bad, I though it would walk away with everything again. Kinda disappointed Chris McKenna got nothing for “Remedial Chaos Theory”, that was hands down the best episode of last season (any show) but Louie C.K. is a very talented comedian!

  • scfyi

    Seriously, Homeland c’mon. The show averages 1.5 million views with a .6 demo. Nobody watches the show. It seems to cater to the old men who are Emmy voters.Breaking Bad should have won best drama series and Bryan Cranston for best actor. The Emmys are a joke.

  • Carmen

    Jon Cryer won!?? Really? Absolutely unbeleivable

    I guess Hollywood loves to see guys play unsufferable mooches.

    Even taking into account that this is based on acting IN ONE EPISODE, I really have trouble understanding the logic in him being nominated – much less winning for the role of Alan. Maybe a last gasp tweek at Charlie Sheen.

    Oh well, its just another reminder why I don’t watch this telecast. It’s one of Hollywoods chances to make political statements and pat itself on the back

  • The Old Lady

    Mad Men lost in everything? What is that show worth to AMC now? It took away the money from Breaking Bad that does well in the ratings and is critically aclaimed. It took money away from Walking dead that did brilliantly in the ratings and for all that it has nothing to show for it. It did miserably in the ratings and now has no awards either. I hope they stop pampering greedy Weiner now.

  • rob60990

    Come on, when the hell will Sofia Vergara win?

    lmao at Homeland beating both Breaking Bad & Mad Men.

  • Babygate

    These award shows are beyond ridiculous. Insecure ‘artists’ looking for validation from the same pool they roll around in. They just love to pander to each other. Is it any surprise that everything has become so politicized? Modern Family is good but not that good. Julianne Moore was horrendous as Sarah Palin and the fact that she presented herself as a pseudo-heroin for having the ‘courage’ to ‘expose’ the worst of the political system is absolutely laughable. The fact that MF, Game Change and Homeland won some many awards is a testament to this agenda-driven crowd. And all the political jokes and commentary were ridiculous. But this crowd does love to pat each other on the back as though having an opinion and insulting half the population makes them great humanitarians. I wonder if they realize how ridiculous they sound. I’m tired of the political propaganda infiltrating not so subtly what it’s supposed to be entertainment.

  • Babygate

    When is Amy Poehler going to get the respect she deserves? I watch Modern Family and Veep. All the ladies on these shows are great, but c’mon, Amy is just genius. While others rely more on the physicality of comedy, Amy is the entire package. The looks, the speeches, the delivery and when needed, the physicality. She can make you laugh by just looking at the camera. Shame. I hope Parks and Rec gets another year so she can win.

  • alim

    amy poehler not winning, smh. am scared that they might do a jane kaczmyrek on her. she was nomeed 8 times and didnt win and she deserved atleast one.

  • Joseph A

    BTW , If I were to do anything with the Emmys ,
    I would limit each show to no more then 2 nominee for each show.

  • Joseph A

    Meant I would limit each show to 2 nominee for each award :)

  • ingmarhappy

    I don’t see the point in the emmy’s anymore. There has to be some difference between cable shows and network shows imo. The Good Wife deserved more than this. They deserved to get nominated at least. I agree Homeland was better this season – but let’s face it. They only have 12 episodes per season while network TV is mostly 22-24 episodes per season. Fair? No.

    I am glad Claire Danes won since she deserved it the most, but I missed Kyra Sedgwick and Ellen Pompeo in the category. Underated once again.

    Modern Family? Really? OMG. I don’t get the hype. Nothing towards the fans but I don’t see the humour. Big Bang Theory deserved it a lot more. Same with actor prices. Where is How I Met Your Mother or Big Bang? Community anyone?

  • Fed

    Nope that is not the point. Why divide shows to Broadcast and Cable? The point is to showcase the best series/actors of all television. If Broadcast continue to air crappy shows than that’s their problem and should step up things.
