Here’s Your Complete List Of Emmy Winners

Emmys 2012 winners Aaron Paul Game Change Homeland Modern Family

Well, that was a fairly boring Emmy Awards. Host Jimmy Kimmel started out strong in the opening bit, but many of his later jokes lacked punchlines. Like, we’re not sure if we’d trust him to do any more pranks after his joke with Tracy Morgan completely underwhelmed us. At least Amy Poehler was on hand to show Jimmy what a real awards show prank looks like.

As for who went home with the golden statue? Well, a handful of series swept the major awards, which is good news for everyone who’s been telling their friends to watch Showtime’s thriller Homeland! But by the same token, it got eye-rollingly exhausting when the Modern Family crew went up for award after award. Did anyone else find it uncomfortable that ABC broadcast the Emmys and won a bunch of awards? It just felt weird.

Now, a couple of actors looked genuinely surprised to win, like Aaron Paul (actually humble, and classily calling out fellow nominee and co-star Giancarlo Esposito), Jon Cryer (because he knew he was up against stiff competition), and Louis C.K. (because it’s him). Those were the sweet little surprises of the night, but they were often overshadowed by utter fails like Benedict Cumberbatch losing out to Kevin Costner. Seriously, what was going on there? That said, we’re super excited for the cast and crew of Game Change! Good on all of them.

    Jon Cryer won an EMMY for Two and Half Men?!?!?!?! Maybe when Charlie Sheen was on it, but it’s just the most ridiculous show I’ve ever seen now!!!! And he’s the most ridiculous character! I tried to watch it but it was just sooooo stupid! I can’t believe this show even still exists! How is this possible?! I have lost any respect I’ve ever had for Emmys (Emmies…?).

      It was an apology Emmy for letting Charlie Sheen bully him for so many years. That’s just my theory on how that possibly happened.

      lol agreed! @123e9cdeadb497857c140e4221b4b786:disqus yeah to be fair, it’s the character he plays that’s ridiculous. He’s a good actor, but I lost a little respect for him for staying in the show after it became so awful. But it’s a job, I guess. It’s just surprising that anyone on that show could win one, just because they’re on that show. I used to really enjoy Two and Half Men. I miss Charlie Sheen lol

    Jon Cryer deserved that award. He has been the best part of that show since the beginning. I love him in Two in a Half Men, and he has always been my favorite. I forgot that the Emmys were on last night, so when I got home from working at DISH, I was so happy that my Hopper automatically records the primetime shows. It was nice that I didn’t have to worry about missing it since it recorded the shows for me on the PrimeTime Anytime feature. Modern Family definitely is one of the best comedies on the TV lately. I think they deserved to win all the awards that they did.
