Emmys 2011: Biggest Really?! Nominations

by Chris Harnick, posted Jul 14th 2011 1:15PM
Jon CryerLet's get real for a minute: The Emmys, if anything, are predictable. While there quite a few fun surprises -- more on that here -- the 2011 Emmy nominations made us roll our eyes more than a few times.

No, Tony Shalhoub didn't miraculously return from TV afterlife and get a 'Monk' nomination, but these few nods are just about as unbelievable -- in a "Come on, really?" kind of way -- as that scenario.

Here, seven nominations that made us roll our eyes, yell at the TV and wonder if things with the Emmys will ever change.

Emmys 2011: Snubs We're on Board With!

by Jean Bentley, posted Jul 14th 2011 12:40PM
The Tonight Show with Jay LenoWhile some of the head-scratching 2011 Emmy nomination snubs are infuriating (no 'Walking Dead'? At ALL?), some we're gleefully happy about.

No offense to Kyra Sedgwick, 'Nurse Jackie' or Lea Michele (plenty of offense to 'The Killing'), but we're kinda glad over here at AOL TV that they didn't waste precious nomination slots. Gotta spread those award accolades around. Share the wealth, people.

Below, a few of the Emmy snubs we can really get behind. Agree? Vehemently oppose? Share your thoughts in the comments.

My Emmy Reactions: Some Joy, Some Confusion and the Happy Dance List

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jul 14th 2011 10:40AM
Every year on Emmy nomination day, as soon as the list of nominees is released, I peruse the roster and start writing. I don't read any reactions or stories until I've read the full list myself, so what follows are my first-blush reactions to seeing the list for the first time.

As I said in my Emmy prediction piece, every year there are omissions that rankle me, but this year, I have to say, the number of nice surprises was large. So as I sit here, still not having had coffee yet, I find myself unable to be too mad at the Emmys. I'm actually pretty pleased about a few things. Is it Opposite Day? The Emmys are recognizing 'Parks and Recreation' and Louie C.K. in comedy categories and 'Friday Night Lights' in the best drama category -- things I hadn't predicted but I'm very happy about -- so maybe it is.

Without further ado, here are my Pre-Coffee Emmy Musings (which I may add to later in the day, post-coffee), followed by the Happy Dance List.

Emmys 2011: Nominations News Roundup

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 14th 2011 9:45AM
Melissa McCarthy ('Mike & Molly') and Joshua Jackson ('Fringe') had an early start this morning as they hosted the eagerly anticipated 63rd Primetime Emmys nominations announcement ceremony at the Television Academy's Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood.



There were some surprises and some yawns among the nominations. 'Modern Family,' 'Friday Night Lights,' 'The Good Wife' and 'The Big Bang Theory' made out like bandits.

On the other hand, there was no Emmy love for 'Terriers,' 'Game of Thrones' was almost totally ignored in the acting categories, and 'The Walking Dead' was shut out in the main categories.

Don Johnson Is Mad at the Emmy Awards - and So Is Jay Leno (VIDEO)

Don Johnson Is Mad at the Emmy Awards - and So Is Jay LenoWell, the 2010 Emmy Awards were held last night. That's all very well and good for the people who won. But what about the losers? What about the stars who never win, or who fail over and over again? On 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), we get to meet two such Emmy losers: Don Johnson and Jay Leno.

While talking to Leno, Johnson recounts his one and only shot at Emmy-related glory. In 1985, he was nominated as Best Actor in a Drama for his work on 'Miami Vice.' And he didn't win. It's been 25 years since then, but Don still seems a little irritated. He calls the whole Emmy experience "painful" and "excruciating," while Jay laughs and claps his hands. "I was pissed!" Johnson says.

by Elena Cox, posted Aug 30th 2010 2:50PM
January JonesThe always beautiful January Jones of 'Mad Men' was nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series at last night's 2010 Emmy Awards, but, unlike the show that made her famous, Jones didn't take home a statue for her role as Betty Draper. The first-time nominee lost to perennial contender Kyra Sedgwick, who nabbed the prize for her performance in 'The Closer.'

Before the event, Jones walked the carpet with rumored boyfriend Jason Sudeikis of 'Saturday Night Live' fame.

Jones donned
a futuristic Versace gown and Miu Miu heels which, unfortunately, helped land her on our worst dressed list.

2010 Emmys Memorable Moments: Speeches, Songs, Clooney, Gervais and More (VIDEO)

by Kim Potts, posted Aug 30th 2010 12:30AM

The fact that there are way more "bests" than "worsts" this year sums up the Jimmy Fallon-hosted 2010 Emmy telecast. Fallon was charming, funny and kept the show moving, the celeb-studded opening musical number -- a spoof of 'Glee' -- is sure to be a viral video tomorrow and lots of fan favorites actually took home statues ... add in the fact that the show didn't go into OT, and the Emmys telecast was a refreshingly entertaining awards show.

The 2010 Emmy Awards Had a Great Host, but Odd Pacing

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 30th 2010 12:01AM
Jimmy Fallon hosts the 2010 Emmy AwardsWhy anyone volunteers to produce an awards broadcast is beyond me. You just can't win; there are always going to be awards that people don't care about, and no matter how well you pace things, those awards will always drag the show down.

The producers of Sunday's Emmy Awards did the best they could to keep things moving, and in the first 90 minutes, it looked like they did just that. Then they realized that they had another 90 minutes left. And that's when the problems began.

At least they had a fantastic host in Jimmy Fallon. And if they had used him in the last half, things would have gone much better. But that's not how award shows go, even though everyone who watches them wishes it was different.

Emmys 2010: 'Mad Men,' 'Modern Family,' Sedgwick Win Top Awards

by Kelly Woo, posted Aug 29th 2010 10:45PM
Kyra Sedgwick, Jim ParsonsNewcomers ruled at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmys.

First-year series 'Modern Family' won the Best Comedy award. "I want to thank our incredible writing staff," co-creator Steve Levitan said.

'Mad Men' was one of the few repeat winners, collecting the Best Drama again for the third year in a row. And 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston also won his third trophy as Best Actor in a Drama.

But most of the telecast's categories saw brand-new winners. 'The Closer' star Kyra Sedgwick stunned prognosticators by winning her first Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama, beating out frontrunner Julianna Margulies ('The Good Wife') and previous winner Glenn Close ('Damages').

Though Margulies lost, her co-star Archie Panjabi became another first-time winner in the Supporting Drama Actress category.
