The nominees for the 65th Annual Emmy awards almost got lost in the shuffle of nerdy things happening at Comic-Con this morning, with everyone you’d expect getting nominated for the honor of being good at TV. The real story, however, is Netflix. In spite of having every mistake they make trotted out, scrutinized, and vilified by a bloodthirsty media, the streaming service continues to get everything that matters right.

Everyone was expecting Mad Men to walk away with the gold for the fifth time after the show returned to an exceptionally strong season. However, now everyone looks incredibly dumb for expecting that. Freshman series Homeland snuck up behind the AMC drama in the cafeteria and pantsed it for all to see. Then star Damien Lewis snickered while Claire Danes made a tiny gesture with his fingers and Mandy Patinkin stroked his beard menacingly.

Also of note, Tom Berenger took home a statue for his work in Hatfield & McCoys, while Tom Bergeron won for his hosting duties on Dancing With The Stars. Truly a great night for performers with easily-confused names.

The rest of the winners are everyone you would expect. And also Jon Cryer. Here is the full list of winners at Sunday’s 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences:

Tonight’s Emmy Awards proved to be a rousing spectacle showcasing and honoring the best television has to offer. At least I assume it was. I was watching football. But from what the Internet tells me, I missed out on a lot of lesbian jokes. More importantly, I missed Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage winning an Emmy for best supporting actor in a drama.

The actor took time to thank his wife as well as his dog sitter, but surprisingly, his speech did not contain any “f*ck yous” directed at kids who used to pick on him in middle-school. I know if I ever ended up on national television, it would turn into an obscenity filled rant directed at all those have wronged me throughout the years. Then again, if I’m ever on national television, it will be for lighting one of the Real Housewives on fire, so maybe it’s for the best I’m only on the Internet.

Here’s a list of the night’s big winners.

Outstanding comedy series: Modern Family
Outstanding drama series: Mad Men
Outstanding miniseries or movie: Downton Abbey
Outstanding lead actress, miniseries or movie: Kate Winslet, Mildred Pierce
Outstanding supporting actor in a miniseries or movie: Guy Pearce, Mildred Pierce
Outstanding directing for a miniseries, movie or dramatic special: Brian Percival, Downton Abbey
Outstanding lead actor in a miniseries or movie: Barry Pepper, The Kennedys
Outstanding supporting actress, miniseries or movie: Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey
Outstanding writing for a miniseries or movie: Julian Fellowes, Downton Abbey
Outstanding lead actor, drama: Kyle Chandler, Friday Night Lights
Outstanding lead actress, drama: Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Outstanding supporting actor, drama: Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
Outstanding directing, drama: Martin Scorsese, Boardwalk Empire
Outstanding supporting actress, drama: Margo Martindale, Justified
Outstanding writing, drama series: Jason Katims, Friday Night Lights
Outstanding variety, music or comedy series: The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Outstanding writing for a variety, music or comedy series: The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Emmy Snub Doesn’t Phase The Cast Of ‘Community’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/emmy-snub-doesnt-phase-the-cast-of-community/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/emmy-snub-doesnt-phase-the-cast-of-community/#comments Mon, 25 Jul 2011 23:56:44 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=222019 “Frankly it didn’t bother me,” Chase added. “I have a lot of Emmys.”

The post Emmy Snub Doesn’t Phase The Cast Of ‘Community’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
When Community was shut out of this year’s Emmy nominations, fans were left to wonder how such a groundbreaking, intelligent series could be completely ignored by the voters. At a time when the critically-acclaimed but low-rated show is still struggling to find a larger audience, an acknowledgment could have gone a long way toward securing its uncertain future. Instead, a series with arguably the best comedy writing on television and an ensemble cast that’s second to none was met with silence. This lack of even a single nom seemed like a slap in the face not only to the cast and crew, but to anyone who prefers their shows without a laugh track.

But when I spoke to Dan Harmon and the cast at Comic-Con, the snub didn’t seem to matter. In fact, Harmon claimed some cast members were perversely pleased by the lack of recognition, including comedy legend Chevy Chase.

“It was just a big ‘I told you so,’ Harmon said. “(Chase) called me and said I told you so. He liked it that we didn’t get a nomination.”

“Frankly it didn’t bother me,” Chase added. “I have a lot of Emmys.”

For cast member Yvette Nicole Brown, the lack of a nomination didn’t come across as a snub, but rather a testament to the quality of Community’s competition.

“There’s a lot of shows on the air that are funny,” Brown said. “It’s almost, like…who would you take off the list. It becomes snarky, then.”

“I can take two off,” joked costar Joel McHale, before adding he felt it was the writing team that deserved the most recognition.

“I don’t want to sound more arrogant than normal, but the writing nomination, I thought that would have been great. But we’re not doing this for awards, or anything. I’m thrilled we’re coming back for a third season.”

That sentiment was echoed by producer Anthony Russo, who along with his brother Joe, worked on the highly revered sitcom, Arrested Development.

“The good news is we’re on the air for another season, we’re all able to keep doing what we’re doing, and we’re having great fun and we’ll see what happens this season.”

According to Dan Harmon, viewers can expect a darker tone from season three, which will include that addition of The Wire’s Michael K. Williams. Not many sitcoms would cast an actor best known for playing a shotgun wielding homosexual who makes a living robbing drug dealers. But according to actor Ken Jeong, the chance to work in such a creative, unpredictable environment is its own reward.

“When you’re part of what I honestly consider to be the funniest sitcom right now on television, whether we have nominations or not, we go hom knowing we do good work.”

Added costar Danny Pudi, “As long as we get to laugh at the end of the day and be challenged with crazy, funny, and smart material, I don’t know if we could ask for anything else.”

Why Did The Emmys Snub ‘Community’? Ask ‘Modern Family’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/why-did-the-emmys-snub-community-ask-modern-family/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/why-did-the-emmys-snub-community-ask-modern-family/#comments Thu, 14 Jul 2011 20:40:30 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=220301 With Modern Family getting so much love, there was no room for one of the best shows on television.

The post Why Did The Emmys Snub ‘Community’? Ask ‘Modern Family’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
To paraphrase Doug Benson, every year I watch the Emmy nominations, and every year I’m outraged that an old gay man’s opinion doesn’t match my own. This year was no exception. And while many deserving shows were snubbed, the complete absence of Community was by far the most insulting omission.

So, what is to blame for Community’s complete lack of nominations? In my opinion, it’s a bizarre fixation with the show Modern Family on the part of the nominators.

To be fair, given the nature of the Emmys, there will always be shows that are left out. After all, there are only so many spots to fill. If every deserving program was nominated, the nominations themselves would be meaningless. Take the Oscars. Being nominated for Best Picture used to mean something. But for the past few years, the Academy expanded the nominations to include 10 films, and the entire process become a joke, the punch line being that at least half of the nominees have absolutely no shot at winning. But with the Emmys, the old cliché stands, and it is still an honor to be nominated. That’s what makes Community’s absence so glaring.

How does such an innovative, ground breaking show get snubbed on so many different levels? More importantly, how is it that not one member of its talented ensemble cast received a nomination in the supporting actor category? Well, of the 12 available supporting actor nominations (six male, and six female), two went to cast members of Glee, and six went to the cast of Modern Family. When two-thirds of the available nominations are monopolized by two shows, with half going to one show in particular, there’s a problem. Throw in a few ridiculous pity nominations for Jon Cryer (he had to deal with Charlie Sheen) and Betty White (ha, the old lady made a sex joke), and you’re left with only two available spots for all the other shows on television, both of which can only be given to women. Given these circumstances, it’s easy to see how Community was left out.

Modern Family isn’t a bad show. In fact, it’s a great show, and it has a very strong cast. But the idea that almost every adult member of that cast should be up for an Emmy is ludicrous. Yes, it’s hard to pick and choose, but that’s the whole point of an award show. Does Sofia Vergara’s exaggerated broken-English really warrant a nomination over the performances of Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie, and Yvette Nicole Brown? Does Eric Stonestreet’s over-the-top portrayal of a gay character really deserve a spot over Donald Glover and Danny Pudi, both of whom play hilarious characters that manage to defy traditional stereotypes? More importantly, do the people who nominate these shows actually watch anything other than Modern Family and Glee?

Of course, Community was overlooked in other categories as well. If ever there was a need for a laugh track, it was when Big Bang Theory was announced as a nominee for best comedy. And to be fair, there were some pleasant surprises. Louie C.K. is up for best actor. That in itself is a joke, but it’s nice to see such a talented guy getting the acknowledgment he deserves, even if it is in the wrong category. It was also nice to see that Martha Plimpton from Raising Hope and Amy Poehler from Parks & Recreation both ended up with noms, as did Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones. But with one of the best shows in recent memory sitting on the sidelines, even these deserving nominations rang hallow.

Again, I’m not bashing Modern Family or its cast, and I’m not even saying that Community is a better show (I happen to think it is, but we’re talking about nominations, so the point it irrelevant). Wha I am saying is that allowing one show to dominate the nomination process is a sure fire way to alienate a lot of talented, deserving artists. It’s also a surefire way to make the Emmys seem even more out of touch and irrelevant than they are.

The nominations for the 63rd Primetime Emmys were announced this morning. There were some pleasant surprises (Friday Night Lights, Louis C.K.), and then there were some inexcusable snubs (Community, Nick Offerman). We here at Screen Junkies like to imagine how certain nominees and passed over favorites would react if honesty were allowed in the media. Here are 10 truthful celebrity reactions.

“I have Ray Romano to thank, for surrounding himself with better actors.”

- Andre Braugher, Men of a Certain Age

“I honestly feel like this year is my year. The episode ‘The Suitcase’ allowed me to showcase a side of me the audience hadn’t previously witnessed. And it has nothing to do with that fact the Bryan Cranston was ineligible this time around.”

- Jon Hamm, Mad Men

“I’m grateful that Jon Hamm finally has a chance to win Best Actor. My mantel doesn’t have room for another accolade.”

- Bryan Cranston, three-time Emmy winner for Breaking Bad

“The Academy’s oversight only further proliferates the immutable truth that intelligent comedic tete-a-tete can only delve so far into esoteric terrain before pedestrian tolerance levels become so over exerted that they crumble. How many times do I have to make Alison and Gillian make-out before you lavish me with awards?”

- Dan Harmon, creator of Community

“I appreciate the Academy’s willingness to not watch the last season of’Dexter‘.”

- Michael C. Hall, Dexter

“I just can’t wait for the host to make a joke about my height. The punchline will be me banging his wife.”

- Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones

“If I win, I’m giving the award to Nick Offerman’s mustache.”

- Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation


“For the love of God, please just let me go back home to my family in England already. I mean, you’re too kind.”

- Hugh Laurie, House

“Ya’ll, seriously? Seriously, ya’ll? Ya’ll can’t be serious. …Seriously, ya’ll?”

- Connie Britton, Friday Night Lights


“The Academy is a bunch of c*nts.”

- Kurt Sutter, creator of Sons of Anarchy

At about this time every years, trade publications and websites are overrun with ads from various television shows asking for “your consideration” in regard to the Emmys. And this year, like a reoccurring herpes outbreak, they are right on cue. I’m sure that for people who are actually involved with nominating shows, these ads are somewhat flattering. But for me, being asked to “consider” Jay Leno‘s fat face day after day is nothing short of torture.

But if nothing else, seeing these ads made me wonder how the networks decide which shows to promote. With the abundance of crap on television, there must be quite a deliberation process. With that in mind, I set to work harassing my dozens of insider contacts, and was given access to the following rejected ‘For Your Emmy Consideration’ ads. I hope you find them as insightful as I have.
