HOMELAND ENDS MAD MEN’S WINNING STREAK

It was a fast-paced evening of several surprises at The 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, including Jon Cryer as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Two and a Half Men on CBS (which could be for surviving the Charlie Sheen fiasco) and Damian Lewis for Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Homeland on Showtime (who ended Bryan Cranston’s three year winning streak for Breaking Bad and made Mad Men star Jon Hamm an also-ran once more).

Homeland was named Outstanding Drama Series, breaking Mad Men’s four-year winning streak, while Modern Family was cited for Comedy Series for the third straight year. Dominating the miniseries and movie category was Game Change on HBO, which also included a trip to the podium for Julianne Moore as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries of Movie and awards for directing and writing. “I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down,” said an ecstatic Moore.

Homeland, like Game Change, won four primetime awards, giving Showtime its first win for Outstanding Drama Series. Named in the category of Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie was Kevin Costner for The Hatfields & McCoys on A&E, which also netted a win for Tom Berenger as Supporting Actor.

Return winners outside of Modern Family included the ninth consecutive Emmy for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central as Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series; the seventh for The Amazing Race on CBS for Reality Competition; and the second straight victory for Julie Bowen as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (joining co-star Eric Stonestreet for his second trophy). Claire Danes was named Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series for Homeland, while Julia Louis-Dreyfus was cited for Veep on Showtime (her third Emmy victory and proof that there is no so-called “Seinfeld curse”).

Also of note were two Emmy wins for comedian Louis C.K. in the categories of Writing for a Comedy Series and Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Special; Tom Bergeron of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars for Reality Show Host; and Maggie Smith and Jessica Lange for their supporting work in Downton Abbey on PBS and American Horror Story on FX.

Sadly, the In Memoriam section, introduced by Ron Howard, was visibly longer than we have seen in recent years with Andy Griffith leading the pack of at least 50 mentioned individuals.
