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.
