Tonight’s Emmy awards were full of moments, some funny, some predictable and some that were refreshingly surprising. Let’s hear it for Top Chef breaking The Amazing Race’s streak! If you missed the ceremony, we have some video highlights for you to check out here.
The Emmy’s always feel a bit lopsided to me as the acting awards for Comedy and Drama fly by during the more energetic portion at the beginning of the ceremony and right around the time I start getting tired, we get to the made-for-TV-movies and miniseries awards, of which HBO has a tendency to dominate. I always wish they’d distribute the awards a little more randomly to keep the pace more even, but that’s just me.
As for the actual awards, Bryan Cranston scored his third consecutive Outstanding Actor award for Breaking Bad. Meanwhile, Mad Men also managed to snag its third award for Outstanding Drama series. Personally, as great as Mad Men is, I really wanted Dexter to take it this year. Modern Family won for Outstanding comedy, which is fair, though I think a lot of Glee fans were disappointed. Fans of The Closer who've been waiting to see Kyra Sedgwick finally win surely weren't disappointed when she took the stage to accept her award. Five nominations for the same show and award were pushing her into Lucci territory, so congratulations Kyra Sedgwick!
