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.

    @Fed totally agree with you

    and about that other comment, there’s nothing forcing CBS to produce 22 episodes of The Good Wife each season, they could only do 12 episodes…

  • Allen

    LOL Homeland beating Breaking Bad.

    And double LOL for Modern Family winning again.

    @Anthony Parrello: >>> 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.. <<<

    They've been doing this on local TV news shows for decades now.

  • MJDB

    I am so happy and surprised that Jon Cryer won the Emmy. He is my favorite actor on TV, and always thought he wouldn’t stand a chance. But when he won, I really felt like he has accomplished a wonderful show for 10 years through thick and thin, when no one thought he ever would. Two and a Half Men is a legendary show!

  • Justin121

    THE GOOD WIFE, REVENGE, 30 ROCK are the best.

    Mod Fam needs to submit Burell and Bowen for lead to really dominate.

  • davie

    sad community didn’t win.
    sad Fringe still hasn’t been nominated

    sad to call this an awards show. hate it when there’s no variation

    Sorry, but Jon Cryer shouldn’t have won the Emmy because he didn’t deserve it. There is no way in hell that even one episode of the new TAAHM (with Cryer/Kutcher) was even a tiny fraction as good as Jim Parsons in Big Bang Theory. I truly think it was a “pity vote” for Cryer for past seasons of TAAHM (before ASShton), which really shouldn’t be considered when voting. This is such a sham, and the voters should be ashamed. It’s was supposed to be for Season 9 (which has to be some of the worst episodes in television history) and not the great episodes that starred Charlie Sheen. It’s no wonder Cryer was surprised – even he didn’t think he deserved it.
