2011 Emmy Winners List (Modern Family + More)

This year at the Emmys, which, like I predicted, were boring and not worth watching more than 20 minutes of, Modern Family and Downton Abbey (whatever that is) won most of the awards.

Modern family took home a whopping five awards, including outstanding comedy series and outstanding supporting actor AND actress in a comedy.

PBS’s Downton Abbey miniseries took four awards for outstanding writing, supporting actress and directing in a miniseries or movie…

To me, the people who won and deserved it, were Kyle Chandler (outstanding lead actor in a drama) for Friday Night Lights. And Peter Dinklage (outstanding supporting actor in a drama) for Game Of Thrones.

I’m also happy that Maggie Smith, Kate Winslet and Melissa McCarthy were recognized, even though I haven’t actually seen any of the projects they won for.

One thought on “2011 Emmy Winners List (Modern Family + More)

  1. I tried to watched this also all of NBC comedys,
    office, parks. 30, that new whitney show. All of them are so weak. 30 rock is ok if you had to watch one. But sitcoms today are a lost cause.
