The latest promotion encourages viewers to “fall in love again” with “Modern Family“, and more people may need to for the show to see continued success. Maybe not him, exactly.
The majority of the awards went to three victors. It’s his second Emmy.
Political comedy Veep was the victor in the best comedy series category. After being in a horrific auto accident in 2014, the actor hit the stage to present an award and was greeted by a deserving standing ovation. Then ask about Game of Thrones, Veep, Girls, The Jinx, True Detective, or Last Night With John Oliver. The show films four months out of the year in Baltimore, Maryland.
Former “Arrested Development” star Jeffrey Tambor received the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy series for his role on the Amazon original series “Transparent“. The fantasy drama “Game of Thrones” was the most-honored program in any single year, with a total of 12 awards.
We’ll also be keeping our eyes peeled for Lady Gaga who is starring in “American Horror Story” this season.
But the night’s biggest victor may have been “Olive Kittredge”, the acclaimed HBO miniseries about 25 years in the life of an acerbic, retired schoolteacher in a seemingly placid Maine town.
We couldn’t be happier for our baby Tyrion on his win, and what made it even better was his completely shocked and excited reaction when his name was called. “I can’t seem to get over that line”.
The comedy win for Louis-Dreyfus, 54, was her fourth in a row for lead actress. “I’m so sorry! Donald Trump said that”. Aduba specifically thanked her sister who came with her to the award show. “We all love each other and support each other”.
“But enough about the Republican national debate”, concluded Peele. Samberg said the Vermont Senator running to be the Democratic presidential nominee “always looks like his plane is delayed”.
Samberg’s opening monologue featured tons of strong jokes.
In the Lead Actress in a Drama category, Robin Wright of Netflix’s “House of Cards” lost to Viola Davis of ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder”. “I’d like to dedicate my performance and this award to the transgender community”.
It took eight years and eight nominations for Mad Men actor Jon Hamm to finally grab an Emmy award for his iconic portrayal of Don Draper in the popular TV series. He sealed the deal at last.
