Modern Family, Glee, Betty White - All Win At The Emmys

Eric
Some pretty big wins at the Emmys tonight. Modern Family picked up three big awards, including the trophy for Outstanding Comedy and Supporting Actor for Eric Stonestreet, who plays one half of the gay couple on the show. Jane Lynch, Neil Patrick Harris and Ryan Murphy all picked up awards for Glee, which inspired a pretty cool opening number. Betty White won her 7th Emmy for her Facebook-initiated gig on Saturday Night Live earlier this year.

Take a peek at the complete list of winners, as well as the aforementioned energetic opening skit, AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. The Amazing Race's 7-year winning streak is finally over! It couldn't have gone to a better show (the only worthwhile show on Bravo, btw).

    Now to break fucking Probst's 3-year winning streak. GOD I hate Jeff Probst.

  2. Betty White SO deserved to win. Congrats!

  3. Don't forget Archie Panjabi, who plays one of CBS's few non-straight characters.

  4. This is the best thing that has ever happened ever.

  5. That was really a great opening sequence.

    I don't know why the chick from So You Think You Can Dance isn't ever nominated for reality show host, cause she's the best. Jeff Probst is totally not.

  6. I was disappointed, but not surprised, that Lost didn't win anything. (It was kind of a weak season, unfortunately.) I would have thought that maybe Jack Bender would have won for his direction, but . . . oh well.

    The only thing I hate about the Emmys is that they can get very predictable since, unlike the Oscars, the same people/shows are eligible to win year after year. Bryan Cranston's great, I get it -- next, please. That said, glad that Modern Family won. It truly deserved it (well, Parks and Recreation deserved it, but I'll take Modern Family for the win). And I'm still disappointed that Courtney Cox was passed up for a nom for her hilarious work on Cougar Town, probably the best show you aren't watching. Seriously.

  7. great hearing glee's creator thanking his partner, but FANTASTIC hearing jane lynch thanking her WIFE :)

  8. Would have liked to have see "Glee" win more, since it really is unique.
    Although I think "Modern Family" is funny, it doesn't have as much appeal for me, even with the Gay characters.

  9. Personally I think Glee is over-hyped. You get funny scenes and good setups for storylines but it never finished the joke/story in any meaningful way. Modern Family - has the better set of actors and has the sardonic wit that Glee tries to achieve. Dont Forget Jim Parsons - although not openly gay, he did thank his boyfriend in his speech as well.

    The Drama, Variety, Reality TV Catagories I really dont care for since i didnt watch anything on those lists (although I did see Temple Grandin which was amazing - Claire Danes Deserved that Award).

  10. Anyone else see the irony in that three (3) of the six (6) nominees for Supporting Actor were out gay men yet the award went to a straight man playing gay? Congratulations to Stonestreet, you must be a great actor because my partner was shocked last night to learn that you aren't gay.

  11. Congratulations to Modern Family, the most brilliantly written comedy on non-cable television.

  12. Although it was nice to see Modern Family win, Stonestreet is a straight man playing a gay part. They don't publicize that too much and his competition was almost all gay men. The gay community should not be jumping for joy on that win. It appears that as a straight man playing gay you can win an award but as a gay man playing gay you are ignored.

    Jane Lynch was awe-inspiring. As a kid I would have been so much better off to know that gay was good and gay people have husbands and wives. Bravo to her for thanking her wife.

    Sad to see Amazing Race rule. The Chef show is total whack and certainly wasn't deserving of the win. Although Probst seems to be disliked by one poster here, the man is hung for days (as is Brian Williams) - just an FYI item. :-) (You can't be ALL bad if you've got good junk!)

  13. A lot of very good, deserving winners overall. I didn't realize the show started at 5 West Coast time, so I missed the beginning; thank you so much for posting the opening--as a huge Springsteen fan AND a Gleek and a fan of TV comedy in general (Tina Fey! Jon Hamm! Tim Gunn?!?! KATE GOSLIN?!?!), that was heavenly.

  14. @OS2GUY: A gay man (NPH) won for best guest actor in a comedy, and a gay woman (Jane Lynch) playing a straight woman won the female equivalent of the award you're questioning (supporting comedy actor).

    I don't think any employer has any business publicizing the sexual orientation of its employees and would be offended if they did. Eric Stonestreet earned his Emmy,and the fact that 3 out of 5 of his nominated competitors were gay men, I think, suggests that gay men are competing well.

    @R: "great hearing glee's creator thanking his partner, but FANTASTIC hearing jane lynch thanking her WIFE :)"

    I agree. I love to hear gay celebrities speaking in non-vague terms about their families. Jane Lynch thanking her wife is clear. Jodie Foster thanking "my beautiful Sydney" is vague to anyone who doesn't know who Sydney is.
    I missed Ryan Murphy's speech, and even after reading your comment, I still don't know what kind of partner Ryan Murphy was thanking, nor would the audience (and I don't know if you know, either, unless he named him/her and you know who he/she is). A writing partner? A company like Viacom acting as a production partner? A romantic partner?

  15. @OS2Guy, Stonestreet also had the best performance. The emmys are judged based on a single performance tape that each actor submits, Stonestreet submitted the hilarious one where he becomes Fizbo.
