'Modern Family' Dominates The 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards (See List Of Winners)

September 19th, 2011 7:41am EDT
Modern Family
Modern Family came full circle at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, winning the very first honors of the night and closing the show by topping the prestigious Comedy Series category.

Mad Men looked set to dominate the night, going in with 19 top nominations, and it continued its winning streak for the best drama title for the fourth year in a row.

But the stars of the period drama didn't fair so well - Jon Hamm was a four-time loser for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series - Kyle Chandler claimed that prize for his role in Friday Night Lights, while Julianna Margulies beat t...

Early 2011 Emmy Predictions: Here's Who Will Win

August 20th, 2011 6:00pm EDT
Mad Men
It may be a little early to predict the Emmy winners, but unlike the Oscars, not much changes in the Emmy Awards season once the nominations are out.

The Emmys can be very tough to predict, but we'll take our best shot. Here's who we think will go home with the gold on Sept. 18th. Do you agree?

Outstanding Drama Series
'Boardwalk Empire'
'Dexter'
'Friday Night Lights'
'Game of Thrones'
'The Good Wife'
'Mad Men'

After yet another outstanding season, it looks like 'Mad Men' may make it four in a row. Its only real competition is 'Boardwalk Empire,' which took the Golden Globe, and...

Mad Men
Hit drama Mad Men looks set to dominate the 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards after scoring 19 nominations, including Best Drama.

Mad Men star Jon Hamm will go up against the likes of Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire), Hugh Laurie (House) and Michael C. Hall (Dexter) for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, while his co-star Elisabeth Moss will battle for the lead actress prize against Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) and Kathy Bates (Harry's Law).

The Outstanding Drama Series category will be a closely-fought affair - Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Dexter, Friday Night Ligh...

And The Emmy Nominees Will Probably Be...

July 13th, 2011 6:19pm EDT
Modern Family
It’s time to predict this year’s Emmy nominees – never an easy task. Emmy voters are unpredictable; they tend to hold onto old favorites, but sometimes nominate newbies and throw in wild card nominees as well.

This was a good year for TV – particularly old favorites like ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Modern Family’ but also new fare like ‘Raising Hope’ and ‘Boardwalk Empire.’

Here are predictions for this year’s nominees in the major series categories. I likely won’t be right on the money, but if I can get four out of every six in each category, I’ll be happy. It can be a tough guessing game.

'Mad Men' And 'Modern Family' Lead Critics Choice Television Awards Nominations

Mad Men
Hit TV shows Mad Men and Modern Family are leading the nominations ahead of the inaugural Critics Choice Television Awards later this month.

The new prize-giving is a spin-off from the famous Critics Choice Movie Awards, which are often seen as a good indicator of which films will go on to Oscars glory.

The first ceremony will take place in Los Angeles on June 20th and Modern Family is leading the field with six nominations, in categories including Best Comedy Series, while Ty Burrell, Ed O'Neill and Eric Stonestreet will all compete for the Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series trop...

It pays to have friends in high places — or in Hollywood's case, in the Screen Actors Guild. Why? Because actors vote for each other at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. The 17th annual ceremony takes place Sunday (8/7c on TNT and TBS), and as the final ballots are being tallied, let's take a stab at who we think will be honored by their peers. Check out our predictions below and tell us your picks for the big prizes.

Strapless and shoulder-baring dresses were popular at Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards, and many celebrities walked the red carpet wearing all sorts of beautiful dresses.

Of course, there were a few duds as well, including "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen who showed a little nipple and Helena Bonham Carter who wore two different colored shoes.

Golden Globes: Who's In, Who's Not & The WTF

December 15th, 2010 9:41am EST
Golden Globe
As reported earlier, the Golden Globe nomination list is out. Among films, ‘The King’s Speech’ leads with seven nods, closely followed by ‘The Social Network’ and ‘The Fighter’ with six apiece. ‘Inception’ and ‘Black Swan’ made strong showings as well among dramas. On the comedy side, ‘The Kids Are All Right’ – which needed a pre-Oscar boost to stay a contender – landed nominations for Annette Bening and Julianne Moore (although, strangely, not Mark Ruffalo) and for Best Comedy – where it’s a surefire winner, unless you can see some brainless foreign journalist voting for ‘RED,’ ‘Alice i...

The King's Speech is leading the charge for the 2011 Golden Globe Awards after landing seven nominations.

The cinematic tale about the British monarchy is heading up the main categories with nominations for Best Picture (Drama) and Best Director for Tom Hooper, while Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush have all received acting nods.

Boxing film The Fighter and Facebook-inspired movie The Social Network trailed with six nominations apiece, including mentions in the Best Picture (Drama) category, which also saw nods to ballet movie Black Swan and sci-fi blockbuster Inception...

'Mad Men' Recap: 'Tomorrowland'

October 18th, 2010 9:24pm EDT
Betty
I’ve come to expect a lot from ‘Mad Men’ finales. As I’ve said before, ‘Mad Men’ is a show in which not a lot happens – but everything usually bubbles up at the end of the season, and the finales tend to hit it out of the park. Just think back on the Emmy-winning Season 3 finale, “Shut the Door. Have a Seat.” that set up the formation of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. It left the viewer captivated and dazed to have to wait several months to see where the action picked up.

Well, ‘Tomorrowland’ – the Season 4 finale – doesn’t live up to the hype. It may be the most disappointed I’ve ever...

'Mad Men' Recap: Blowing Smoke

October 12th, 2010 8:45am EDT

“They can smell it on us” – desperation, that is. The senior officers of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce know the bind they’re in – everyone in town knows they’ve lost 50% of their business, and no one wants to give them a job. The Heinz rep Faye hooked Don up with tells him, “I bet I could get a date with your mother right now” in response to Don’s surprisingly pathetic pleas. Ouch.

Speaking of pathetic, let’s get this out of the way: Don’s Ghost of Christmas Past materializes in the form of Midge, his mistress way back in Season One. (If by “mistress” you don’t have it narrowed down, pi...

Who was more pathetic in this episode of 'Mad Men' - Don or Roger? Don was up to his old tricks, so I'd vote Roger, who has reached a (scary) new low. Don reached a new low this season, and apparently so has Roger. But is he as resilient?

We learned last week from Lee Garner Jr. that Lucky Strike is striking out with Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. But Roger is the only person with that knowledge - until now. Ken hears the news at a dinner with his fiance and her parents, from a competitor, no less. Ken wastes no time, cornering Pete in the hospital during Trudy's (long) labor. Cooper...

Mad Men The Beautiful Girls
This episode strongly features two favorite 'Mad Men' female characters: Don's daughter Sally and his unapologetic secretary Ida. Unfortunately, neither of them have a good time during this episode, but they are great fun to watch.

Let's start with Ida. After having some more good one-liners (to Don: "Are you going to the toilet??" and about Sally: "She looks so chubby in the pictures...") she dies so fast she doesn't even time to drop dead. Instead her head rolls back, her mouth agape, dark glasses pointed at the ceiling. The scene that ensues, featuring Pete attempting to wrap Ida's ...

'Mad Men' Recap: 'The Summer Man'

'The Summer Man' has a 'Wonder Years' quality to it - a thoughtful voiceover, plus lots of talk of summer and the feelings in the air. As demonstrated in last week's episode, 'The Suitcase,' perhaps Don's time is now. Is he finally climbing out of his hole?

First off, he admits he has a drinking problem. He watches co-workers gulp scotch, ice floating in the cold glass, in slow motion. Even Peggy partakes as Don looks on, yearning for it. Instead, he sticks to light beer, chianti and coffee.

If cleansing and baptism were ever themes on 'Mad Men,' they are evident in this episode. Th...

Mad Med - The Suitcase
The best episode this season – and perhaps one of the best ever – ‘The Suitcase’ could easily have been called ‘The Fight’ or ‘The Birthday.’ But ‘The Suitcase’ is apt, since Samsonite is strong and sturdy, and as Don says, “You always have to have it ready to go.”

If Elisabeth Moss doesn’t win an Emmy for this episode, she never will for this show. The same may be true for Jon Hamm. Peggy and Don make a remarkable evolution from the episode’s start to finish. Peggy goes from being sick and resentful of Don’s criticism to the one (living) person who truly understands him. And Don seem...

'Mad Men' Recap: 'Waldorf Stories'

It's fitting that while Mad Men was presented with its third consecutive Emmy win for Best Drama Series on Sunday, in "Waldorf Stories," airing at the same time, Don Draper took home a Clio for best ad. Somehow, Mad Men's acceptance of its award was more graceful than Don could hope to be. More on that in a minute.

This episode featured many intricate plots. First, the flashbacks: Don, a fur salesman, approaches Roger about contributing to the firm. He invites him out for a drink (Roger's "At 10 o'clock in the morning?" response is both ironic and pathetic). Clearly these two are a match m...

2010 Emmys: Who Should Win & Who Will Win

2010 Emmys
It’s a transitional year for the Emmys, meaning this is one of the more exciting races in recent memories. The flood of new nominees (brought on by a stellar development slate) means that we can no longer rely on the predictable Emmy voting to determine winners. Instead, this is a year where we can see many newcomers emerging and starting a whole new slate of predictable nominees.

Yes, that was a little cynical, but it’s the sad truth of the Emmys – habits are hard to break for the voters. Luckily, this year the virgin nominees have afforded them an extensive choice for brand new habits.

'Mad Men' Creator Encourages Actresses To Bulk Up

"Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner urges his female stars to indulge in tasty treats and stay off the treadmill so they can look "healthy", according to actress January Jones.

The blonde bombshell insists she loves working on the drama, set in the 1960s, because she is expected to look like a curvy '60s woman rather than a modern, toned Hollywood actress.

Weiner reportedly asked Jones to put on weight last year and she admits she's embracing her new body shape and enjoying "beer and carbs."

She tells Britain's Tatler magazine, "He (Weiner) would prefer we didn't work out and that we eat re...

Ah, the Emmys. The one Awards show on TV that has a nonchalant attitude toward its honorees and the medium it seeks to honor. A ceremony that seeks to put on a funny show, not blow smoke up the behinds of the many winners mostly seem like they'd rather not be there.

Sure, the last couple years were awful, but this year we have the inimitable Neil Patrick Harris at the helm, and with the possibility that this may be Emmy's final year on broadcast television, they're certain to pull out all the stops and ratchet up the funny.

I am a Saturday Night Live junkie - so much so that at times I have trouble hiding how big of a fan when that little thing called professionalism may be at stake. It was so apparent in the interview I conducted with current featured player Bobby Moynihan - a self-described "SNL" nerd himself - that he casually mentioned the prospect of me attending a show.

Now I could tell Bobby was a really nice guy, but I thought he was just trying to be polite. I was pleasantly surprised (read: screamed like a 12 year old girl!) when a week later he followed up on that invitation and asked if I wan...
