Sunday 8:00 PM on CBS

UPDATE, 8pm Pacific: That's a wrap, everybody. Let's hear your thoughts on this year's winners in the comments!

Your tuxedo shirt is ironed, your flip-flops are polished, and your mini bottle of Peppermint Schnapps is chilled to ice-cold perfection. You are ready for the glory that is known as the Primetime Emmy Awards. But that Schnapps can hit hard, and we all know that even though these ceremonies last for approximately eight hours each, it sometimes feels as if they're over in a flash. So I'll be here to provide running commentary and a full list of winners just in case you're feeling too slow or too inebriated to pay attention. 

Will Modern Family steal all the comedy trophies? Will Jeff Daniels repeat as Best Lead Actor in a Drama somehow? Will host Seth Meyers tear off his skin and reveal himself to be the leader of the subterranean crab people? Probably!

I'll be updating the list of winners LIVE right here, so keep tapping that refresh button as if your life depends on it. And don't forget to voice your well-formed, intelligent opinions in the comments!

Here we go! Seth just took a cheap shot at Bachelor in Paradise so I'm turning this off!


OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES

**WINNER ** Ty Burrell, Modern Family
Adam Driver, Girls
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Modern Family
Tony Hale, Veep
Fred Armisen, Portlandia
Andre Braugher, Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The Modern Family domination begins as the first award of the night goes to Phil Dunphy, who wore clear glasses, just like his fellow nominee Fred Armisen. 


OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES

Mayim BialikThe Big Bang Theory
Julie BowenModern Family
Anna Chlumsky, Veep
**WINNER ** Allison Janney, Mom
Kate Mulgrew, Orange Is the New Black
Kate McKinnon, Saturday Night Live

Jimmy Kimmel made a bid to host next year's Emmys by calling Matthew McConaughey fat, and Ricky Gervais showed off his "TV face." Janney's speech was that of a pure vet, as she's now got a half-dozen Emmys to her name (this was her second win of 2014, as she also won Guest Actress in a Drama for Masters of Sex). Janney is like the Modern Family of people, except when it comes to quality. 

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES

Louis C.K., Louie
Don Cheadle, House of Lies
Matt LeBlanc, Episodes
**WINNER ** Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory
William H. Macy, Shameless
Ricky Gervais, Derek

Bryan Cranton and Julia Louis-Dreyfus presented this award and Cranston flashed JLD a LOOK for an old Seinfeld joke and it was great. Also, the Emmys orchestra totally butchered the Breaking Bad theme and make it sound like carousel music. Parsons was great on stage, as if he was the most surprised of anybody that he won. He almost sounded as if he was embarrassed to have won and essentially said that he wasn't worthy of it. It's nice to see that a million dollars per episode hasn't changed him. I love you, Jim Parsons.


OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES


Lena Dunham, Girls
Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie
**WINNER ** Julia Louis-DreyfusVeep
Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation
Taylor Schilling, Orange Is the New Black
Melissa McCarthy, Mike & Molly

JLD won, of course (she deserved it, obviously) and her lips were immediately taken hostage by Bryan Cranston's mouth in a little gag that was in no way pre-planned, right? Anyway, those two are great and they should make babies who take over the world and lead humanity to awesome new places. Their interplay almost made me forget that the award was presented by Jimmy Fallon, who causes involuntary anger to well up inside of me.


OUTSTANDING REALITY COMPETITION PROGRAM

**WINNER ** The Amazing Race
Dancing With the Stars
Project Runway
So You Think You Can Dance
Top Chef
The Voice

Reality. Whoopie. Let's move on.



Sometime during the middle of the ceremony, Weird Al came out and did this medley of re-imagined TV theme songs, and he flew through a bunch of them, like Mad Men and Scandel but then spent a really long time on Game of Thrones which was cool. Except that it wasn't that good. But it was still Weird Al on the Emmys, so I loved it because he's the greatest. Like, some old woman in Oklahoma was just subjected to watching Weird Al and it totally blew her mind. That made my day. 


OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A MINISERIES OR MOVIE

Matt Bomer, The Normal Heart
Jim Parsons, The Normal Heart
**WINNER ** Martin Freeman, Sherlock: His Last Vow
Colin Hanks, Fargo
Joe Mantello, The Normal Heart
Alfred Molina, The Normal Heart

Martin Freeman was not in attendance to accept his award because he was too busy being awesome. 


OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A MINISERIES OR MOVIE


**WINNER ** Kathy Bates, American Horror Story: Coven
Angela Bassett, American Horror Story: Coven
Frances Conroy, American Horror Story: Coven
Julia Roberts, The Normal Heart
Ellen Burstyn, Flowers in the Attic
Allison Tolman, Fargo

Total utter rage that Allison Tolman didn't win here, but what do you expect in a popularity contest like the Emmys? In other news, my fantasy football draft is going very poorly but my 9-month-old daughter is still alive so I guess that's something!


OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR IN A MINISERIES OR MOVIE

**WINNER ** Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock: His Last Vow
Martin Freeman, Fargo
Billy Bob Thornton, Fargo
Chiwetel Ejiofar, Dancing on the Edge
Idris Elba, Luther
Mark Ruffalo, The Normal Heart

Like Mr. Freeman, Benny couldn't attend, because he too was busy being awesome. But really, this award should've gone to Freeman, too, right? Blame the vote split between him and Billy Bob?


OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS IN A MINISERIES OR MOVIE


**WINNER ** Jessica Lange, American Horror Story: Coven
Sarah Paulson, American Horror Story: Coven
Helena Bonham Carter, Burton and Taylor
Minnie Driver, Return to Zero
Kristen Wiig, The Spoils of Babylon
Cicely Tyson, The Trip to Bountiful

The old "miniseries" trick works again! Congrats on working the system, American Horror Story


OUTSTANDING MINISERIES


American Horror Story: Coven
**WINNER ** Fargo
Luther
Bonnie & Clyde
The White Queen
Treme

Take that, AHS. As Kaitlin said to me in response to Fargo's win, "Thank God, I was about to punch a baby." She is a woman of her word, too. I've seen her punch a baby and then just walk away like it was the baby's fault. Kaitlin will eat you alive whether you are an infant or a grown-ass man. Watch out for her. 


OUTSTANDING TV MOVIE

**WINNER ** The Normal Heart
Sherlock: His Last Vow
Killing Kennedy
Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight
The Trip to Bountiful

The Normal Heart stood exactly no chance of NOT winning.


OUTSTANDING VARIETY SERIES


**WINNER ** The Colbert Report
The Daily Show With Jon Stewart
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Real Time With Bill Maher
Saturday Night Live
Jimmy Kimmel Live

Jimmy Fallon pretended like he won or something? And he hogged most of the time on the microphone. I know it was planned and all, but if I wanted to see Jimmy Fallon talk on television I would watched his late-night show. 


OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES


**WINNER ** Aaron PaulBreaking Bad 
Jim Carter, Downton Abbey 
Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones 
Mandy Patinkin, Homeland 
Josh Charles, The Good Wife 
Jon Voight, Ray Donovan 

Whoa. I still think Dean Norris had the better season, but I'm all for Breaking Bad winning everything. Paul earned a surprise (?) victory and was super gracious as he thanked all the people involved in the show that literally "changed his life." Well done, bitch.


OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A DRAMA SERIES


**WINNER ** Anna Gunn, Breaking Bad
Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey
Lena Headey, Game of Thrones
Christine Baranski, The Good Wife
Joanne FroggattDownton Abbey
Christina HendricksMad Men

That's 2-for-2 for Breaking Bad actors as the show is being sent off in style. Can Cranston make it 3-for-3? Also, Anna Gunn looked like she was 23


OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS IN A DRAMA SERIES


Claire DanesHomeland 
Michelle DockeryDownton Abbey 
**WINNER **  Julianna MarguliesThe Good Wife 
Kerry WashingtonScandal 
Robin WrightHouse of Cards 
Lizzy Caplan, Masters of Sex

And this was a totally satisfactory outcome, I think? Margulies also said it was a "wonderful time for women on television." 

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES


**WINNER **  Bryan CranstonBreaking Bad
Jeff DanielsThe Newsroom
Jon HammMad Men
Woody Harrelson, True Detective
Kevin SpaceyHouse of Cards
Matthew McConaughey, True Detective

Despite all the chatter about this award going to McConaughey, I totally called Cranston winning it. This was a monster battle, and both actors were worthy. But in the end, Cranston was the right choice. His acceptance speech was excellent, too. That guy is so rad. 


OUTSTANDING COMEDY SERIES

The Big Bang Theory
Louie
**WINNER ** Modern Family
Veep
Orange Is the New Black
Silicon Valley

Jay Leno presented this award, and it went to Modern Family so I guess that's appropriate. Anyway—lame, right? 


OUTSTANDING DRAMA SERIES


**WINNER **  Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones
House of Cards
Mad Men
True Detective

Breaking Bad had a fantastic night, but every time the show won an award, the orchestra played a really lame version of the theme music complete with some goofy chimes. It was almost enough to make me root against Breaking Bad, but ultimately I found the inner strength to power on, and everyone should really think highly of me for that. What a guy I am. 


The following awards were handed out during the Creative Arts Emmys, which were held last week but recognized this evening.

im pissed about the leading drama role - Men!

I think that Matthew M. deserved that Emmy & am pissed about that!

But being in the company he was for best drama actor - all those names, all those people in some way deserved that emmy!!
No disrespect to the oter actors in that category - they WERE ALL AMZING in their roles, each of them, trully! I just thought he was the BETTER CHOICE!

And for those who saw his wonderful acting and producing in True Detective, I think you would agree with me!

Great, so this should finally put an end to the Breaking Bad charity? Good...? Yes. Great...? At times. Best show ever fully deserving of the awards it's received...? I dunno about that. When compared to the hype, most overrated show ever...? Definitely!

While I appreciate that art is subjective, how True Detective, Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey all get shut out is beyond me.

They went for "Best Drama" and got nothing. That'll teach those guys a lesson to submit their show into the right category. I really don't see how American Horror Story and True Detective didn't compete in the same categories, as both shows follow a similar concept.

No good deed...something, something...

AHS really has no business being a mini series...they've got a returning cast for crying out loud. That they play different characters is just them tweaking the narrative format. I don't think TD is either, but at least (as far as I know) it's two completely different stories with an all new cast.

Regardless, while I quite enjoyed Breaking Bad, I don't think it can hold the collective jock straps of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. I'm pretty sure that was the academy saying, "Okay McConaughey...you've won enough this year. Give somebody else a turn. Sorry Woody, if we can't give it to Matt, we can't give it to you. So who does that leave? Fine...here you go Cranston, don't say we never did nothin' for ya! Aaron Paul & Anna Gunn...we've seen your bodies of work so here..enjoy it before you head down the post Breaking Bad career path of Dean Norris."

BB is one of the greatest TV shows of all time but I agree Emmy voters just like to give it to the same people all the time, it makes things boring.

Still they are a few pleasant surprise this year like Julianna.

So, I'm fairly ignorant about the Emmys, but it's bullshit that AHS got entered as a miniseries, and so won awards it didn't deserve, and True Detective got entered as a full length, and so didn't win as many as it deserved?
Who makes that decision?
If I'd made TD, and I got to choose, I'd put it in as a mini series rather than go up against BB, which was clearly going to win.
But then maybe some people think being nominated for best as a full series is as good as winning as a mini series? I'unno.

The network and the TV show runners made their choices on which category they are entering. The Emmys "respect" their choices. They should be some rules but it seems there is none. If TD wanted to win bad enough, they should have entered it somewhere else so perhaps they are just not so hung up about awards.

American Horror Story at least i understand. In theory each season is a self contained story. They are calling it a miniseries because going in you know you are only getting one year. I think they are doing the same thing for True Detective. Changing the actual story each year to a self contained plot.

benedict winning instead of billy bob .. you can give it any year to benedict cause he is awesome, just not this year .. thornton owned this years television performance by far, and fargo is the best television has offered this year .. (also by far)

jim parsons winning : all the other 5 are way more talented, funny, original (yes also matt le blanc, he is amazing in episodes) then this one trick pony..
i guess parsons feels embarrassed winning from this guys .. well i would feel embarrassed if i was him..

and house of cards should win everything next year ..

I am someone that struggles with empathy and had never before empathized with anything that I had witnessed on television but his performance in "The Laws of Gods and Men" changed that. It was easily the most powerful thing I have ever seen on television.

For the most part of this latest Emmy this is the most acceptable for me as a viewer Breaking Bad, AHS and Jim Parsons but I'm not sure about Modern Family, I don't know if I lost it a long time ago. A moment of silence for Amy Poehler, I blinked back the tears as well for you.

- True Detective got no awards?! There is a God haha
- Well done to Breaking Bad, which bowed out with an amazing final season
- Well done to Anna, Bryan & Aaron - well deserved, although I wouldn't have been disappointed if Jeff Daniels got another surprise win
- Jim Parsons is a legend and i'm glad he gets the recognition he deserves
- Thank God for Fargo winning, amazing show that deserves the win
- Well done to Benedict & Martin for their respective Sherlock wins
- Annoyed that Sherlock (His Last Vow) did not win, have not seen The Normal Heart but Sherlock is an outstanding drama that deserves the awards
- Modern Family AGAIN?! it hasn't been great for two seasons now. Not well deserved. Silicon Valley or Veep should have won this season

Some pretty good choices, all told, and I'm glad to see BB go out in style... again. I have to say I think a couple of the wins for them may have been in part, if it was a neck and neck choice, due to the fact that the show had ended and a win would prove a bonus to the wrap-up. But still, all good, and some of the speeches and antics were classic.

LOVED Weird Al as a kid and so was happy to see him on stage, even though, yeah, it wasn't that great (still, though). As for the orchestra -- HORRIBLE! At least when it came to SOME of the renditions. Reminded me of the 'interpretive dance' that 'graced' the Academy Awards some years ago.

Dinklage not winning in the Supporting Category is a joke, Paul was great as usual in the 2nd half of season 5, but there was nothing extraordinary in his performance compared to previous seasons ... Dinklage absolutely killed it in GOT last season, his best individual performance of the entire run and it's not even close..

But then, this looked more like a parting gift to the BB actors, only Gunn really deserved it to be honest, even Cranston's performance was not that great compared to McConnaughey's in TD....

Honestly? I agree with you (except for the part about Cranston's performance).

Now, if Norris had submitted, and been up for the Emmy instead of Paul? Then I think it could've (see: should've) gone either way. Both actors (Dinklage and Norris) did some great things with the material they were given.
Reply
Flag
I don't doubt that politics played into this, as you point out with the parting gift. Another element giving Paul the nod instead of Dinklage is likely that Dinklage has won the same award before, unless I'm mistaken. Both were well deserving, but I think Paul got more time on stage than Dinklage due to the sheer size of the cast and focus on certain groups during episodes of GOT, and while Tyrion's speech in his trial and him then killing his Pop were pretty much tops for all television of the season to that moment, I can see why Paul got it overall.

This is an "acting" award, not an award for how much time a particular character got on screen, Dinklage's performance at the trial, his conversation with Nic Waldau in the dungeon and his acting during that mortifying scene at the wedding warrants him an Emmy, it's not just 1 scene but 3 according to me, where he stands out heads and shoulders above any other performer from any other show.
As I said, Paul was great but there was nothing overly dramatic in his performance compared to previous seasons, and so didn't really deserve it ahead of Peter, but I understand why he got it...

Nowhere did I say that spending more time on stage means that you are more entitled to an award, but being on stage more can provide more focus on how the character plays out depending on the acting. As I said, and as you clearly agree, when Dinklage peaked in certain scenes he was definitely Emmy-worthy (you'll see my comment on the episode with his trial where I simply say, "There's the Emmy!"), but I disagree that Paul did not display much drama in the final season. I don't think the highest points are as good as Dinklage's were, but like I said as well I can see why he got it.

Not to suggest that this was or wasn't the case, but that doesn't make sense. It could force out an equally stellar performance by a second actor in a show and thus put an inferior performance into said slot. While I agree that some of the Emmy go-tos don't deserve to be there, a rule like this would be a terrible idea.

4 of 6 nominees from the same show or something like that? thats absurd! And saying no other shows have deserving performances??? Sorry, make the rule!
Mini series? These shows are regular shows, does that mean Fargo wont be on next season????? I dont think so!!!
Reply
Flag
Uh, I did not say that other shows don't have deserving performances. I simply pointed out that it would be equally unfair to limit shows to one nominee, if there are multiple nominees that are deserving. Take, for example, when Giancarlo Esposito and Aaron Paul were both nominated for supporting actor in Breaking Bad. They were both certainly deserving, and were easily among the six best supporting actors that year. Your rule would force one of them out, which seems unfair. I agree that four of the six nominations going to the same show is likely very egregious, but a stricture on how many nominations in a category can go to one show isn't the way to fix it.

And there are certainly some shows that take advantage of the miniseries category. I would, however, argue that Fargo could fit the bill if the actors are playing different characters--then it is essentially a new role, as is the case in a series like American Horror Story. I have no problem with them submitting in that manner, as each season is a distinct story with different characters; that is, Jessica Lange's characters are different people and thus different roles. It just so happens they're given the same series name and use the same crew (with a regularly similar cast).

Matthew wuz robbed.

What do you think of putting TD in that category now, HBO? The look on Matthew's face when he wuz robbed holds the answer for you.

Everyone else in the Outstanding Comedy Series category, with the exception of the equally unfunny BBT, wuz robbed.

Myers stinks. Really, really, really stinks.

Yes, Gervais, you really do stink. Even the Emmy voters, who know nothing, know you stink. No, Drek is not funny.

Glad that's over.

I'm pretty annoyed that Lizzy Caplan didn't win. That category was already a travesty since Keri Russell and Tatiana Maslany weren't nominated. Think about how strong that category could have been: Keri Russell, Lizzy Caplan, Tatiana Maslany, Julianna Margulies, Clare Danes, and there's still room for one more.

Lizzy was even better in season 2 than in season 1, so maybe next year. But then I hope that Keri and Tatiana are nominated.

At least they gave it to someone else (Julianna Margulies) who's also very good, and who really carries her show. It would have been a joke to give it to Robin Wright (who is good, but also boring, and relatively insignificant on her show).

I can't help but feel like Julianna Margulies winning was partly the Emmy's way of going, "Oh, sorry, we effed up major by not nominating your series for Outstanding Drama, which you absolutely deserved." Not to suggest she didn't deserve it--she absolutely did. If TGW had won nothing this year, that would have been an utter travesty.

The only thing the Emmy´s do consistently is dissapoint me. Thank god for backstage and red carpet pictures, that´s the only reason this award show is worth anything anymore, Oh that and they gave Uzo her much deserved award. Of course that only happened cause she was in the "guest actress" category even though she clearly isn't. I'll stop spouting my negativity now and continue looking at awesome backstage pics ;).

I called Cranston winning it too! Then again since it really was only a two man race - I did have a 50/50 chance. I'm glad he won, I'm glad Breaking Bad did so well - it was the right call in every case - except possibly Aaron Paul's win over Peter Dinklage. Oh and wtf is up with not even acknowledging the best show on tv - Hannibal! Hannibal rules in acting, writing, directing, cinematography, music (oh WOW the music/sound editing is phenomenal), guest stars - pretty much in every way possible. It is a crime that Hannibal is virtually ignored - and not just by the emmys but the press and most American tv viewers as well. A real shame. So glad it's coming back for Season 3!

A big shame that Peter Dinklage didn't win. Paul Aaron does deserves everything he wins, of course, but this time it was time for Peter Dinklage. Because his forth season at Game Of Thrones was awesome. Next season Peter Kinklage may get lucky when there is not more Breaking Bad, though it looks like shows as GoT will never be taking seriously by voters. And who are these voters anyway?.
Anna Gun looked beautiful and young, and I always defended her character Skyler when everyone made her life so hard. Anna Gun has been abused and attacked even Breaking Bad finished ages ago (it feels like) for portraying Skyler in the way she did, as if she had a choice. The scene of the knife cutting the hand, it could just as well being aimed for Walter White´s throat.
Brian Cranston, I hope this is The Last Time you win something for Breaking Bad. You were so lucky, and you deserved it too, specially getting the award from Julia Roberts (what is with the Julias Brian?).
Finally it´s a great news that Uzo Aduba - Crazy Eyes from Orange Is The New Black won an Emmy award. Congratulations! and here is a link to see:

if Orange is the New Black didn't win anything I would of been so mad. I think "Red" should of won her award too. Overall, I'm not sure Orange is the New Black should be considered a Comedy series - it is often funny but its main goal and purpose still seems to make it more a drama. It's a tough call - a true dramaedy.

Except for Margulies, it's mostly meh for me. And what's with Modern Family, really.

Most of these wins are fair, except for Modern Family of course. I just cannot fanthom why they are so adored by the academy. Anyway, great win for Breaking Bad, Sherlock, the Normal Heart, Julianna Margulies and Julia LD.

I'm absolutely thrilled that both Cumberbatch and Freeman got an award for their work on Sherlock. It's time they got recognized.

It's a shame that Dinklage didn't get an Emmy because he was just brilliant this season. I'm happy Margulies got, though.

Ya I was disappointed about Dinklage not winning, especially after his *amazing* courtroom scene, but c'est la vie.

He had a couple of absolutely AMAZING speeches in the last season of GoT... But there is always next year, as Breaking Bad has finished..
Would have liked to have seen a few other shows make the list - there are heaps of awesome shows, which are always overlooked because they are scifi/fantasy.

That scene was THE BEST!

We need a ban on all Modern Family and Big Bang Theory nominations so a more deserving show/actor can be recognized.

Now THERE'S a good idea.

You just know they're both going to win again next year.

Modern family is so horrible, at least to me. Why doesn't a comedy win that can actually make me laugh?

Would have personally loved to see Silicon Valley snag it, but no surprises here I see.

I was really surprised at how great Silicon Valley's first season was - such a great show!

Not much is worse than Modern Family, but maybe New Girl.

Nice to see Bob's Burgers win in its category. Maybe Fox will now start showing more repeats of it instead of endless reruns of The Simpsons and Family Guy. Fox has barely repeated any of BB's episodes from this past season over the summer, opting instead to show repeats from last season or no repeats at all.

And way to go, Breaking Bad. It was a good night for shows whose initials are BB.
