To help you do even better at predicting the winners of next year's Emmys, take heed of these five lessons from this year's awards. -Break- Did Creative Arts awards predict Emmy winners? 1. Different years have different panels. It is difficult not to take every win as indicative of a larger trend, but the truth is that the judging panels comprise mere dozens of voters and a few stray ballots really can make a difference. Ty Burrell (“Modern Family”) was far out front in Gold Derby’s odds for last year’s Best Comedy Supporting Actor race, in which none of the nominees made an outstanding episode submission. He was a sensible choice because the consensus was that he had the most passable episode and because he could fall back on his general popularity. After all, he would go on to win the Screen Actors Guild Award for TV Comedy Actor »
The Muppets returned to the big screen with a self-titled relaunch in 2011, and it was met with a lot of excitement from fans, but was not a runaway success. The follow up Muppets Most Wanted was received with less enthusiasm, and barely made fifty million domestically. Which is too bad as it’s the slightly better film. Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, and Ty Burrell are the main humans and are joined by all the main Muppets (like Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and more) in this European caper. My review of the Muppets Most Wanted Blu-ray of the film follows after the jump. Picking up seconds after the last film ended, the gang realize they’re doing a sequel and sing a song about how they’re back though they know that sequels usually aren’t as good as the first (and also note that this is actually the seventh film in the franchise, »

On the Parks and Recreation set in Pasadena, Calif., Poehler was dressed up in a strapless purple gown. Scott, meanwhile, donned a crisp white shirt with a pair of dark dress pants. Both sporting sunglasses, Poehler walked about the set with a coffee in hand, while Scott was staying hydrated with water.
Poehler and Scott were filming scenes for a the latest Parks & Recreation wedding – which could be between Ann (Rashida Jones) and Chris (Rob Lowe). Regardless, it looks like Leslie Knope (Poehler) will be one of the bridesmaids.

Moments after Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep"), Ty Burrell ("Modern Family") and Stephen Colbert ("The Colbert Report") won Emmys, they scooted back stage to riff with reporters. Below: Videos captured by Ralph Galvan. -Break- Julia Louis-dreyfus, "Veep" (Best Comedy Actress) Ty Burrell. "Modern Family" (Best Comedy Supporting Actor) After Burrell won for a secont time for his role as Phil Dunphy, he told reporters that victory was sweet. “In terms of career, it ranks at the very top. I certainly didn’t think I’d have a steady job in my life let alone an award. I would like for this show to last so long that Luke goes bald.” Stephen Colbert & 'Colbert Report' Team (Best Variety Series) »
Awards-wise, the 2014 Emmys played out exactly the way most people would have predicted - lots of trophies for Breaking Bad and Modern Family and assorted other laurels for veteran Emmy favorites. Thankfully, though, we had the acceptance speeches to inject a hint of surprise into the proceedings. From Aaron Paul's emotional shout-out to his wife to Julia Louis-Dreyfus's shocking kiss, Monday night's winners proved that they didn't need a screenwriter or a director to do their best work. (Though some of them, like Sarah Silverman, may have had other kinds of help.) Watch the five most interesting Emmys »

Sofia Vergara cut loose - footloose - on the dance floor at HBO's post-Emmys party. "We always try to find out where Sofia's going 'cause that's where the dance party is," her Modern Family costar Jesse Tyler Ferguson told People on the Emmy Awards red carpet. The actress didn't disappoint, joining outstanding-choreography nominee Derek Hough for a turn around the floor set to Kenny Loggins's "Footloose." The Dancing with the Stars pro didn't hold back, twirling Vergara, 42, around and around, picking her up and spinning her while the crowd looked on and cheered. Check out a video of the pair dancing below. »

Don't expect a swift response to any communication sent to someone who works in the TV industry: last night was the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards (see the list of winners here), and the parties were going on long into the night. As we said this morning, "Breaking Bad," "Modern Family" and "Sherlock" were the big winners, with Bryan Cranston, Julianna Marguiles, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jim Parsons, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jessica Lange taking the leading actor trophies, and Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Ty Burrell, Allison Janney, Martin Freeman and Kathy Bates winning prizes for supporting roles. As it's been said here and elsewhere, it was among the least surprising awards shows in the history of awards shows, but that doesn't mean that there weren't a few shocks or injustices. Below, we've analyzed what we reckon were the most notable WTFs from last night's ceremony, but you can add your own in the comments section below. »

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

The Emmys dont change because the establishment never changes: only the same straight white guys are allowed to be professionally funny
Everyones biggest problem with the Emmys is that it never changes. Modern Family, a crusty donut left out on the office counter overnight, took home the top honor for comedy and actor Ty Burrell won an award for it too. Jim Parsons got his third Emmy for The Big Bang Theory, because getting $1m an episode isnt reward enough. However the most crushing blow was The Amazing Race taking home its 10th trophy for competitive reality show. It lost last year to The Voice, only the second time that the show hasnt won the category.
Even when the awards are deserved, like multiple wins for Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Jessica Lange and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, its still upsetting when the status quo is maintained. It just shows that »

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards were held last night in Los Angeles. And if you thought that NBC were somehow airing a repeat of last year's ceremony, you'd be forgiven: the awards were dominated by previous winners, with "Modern Family" tieing "Frasier"'s record for most victories in comedy, and "Breaking Bad" taking its third drama prize on the trot. Hotly-tipped newcomers like "True Detective," "Fargo" and "Orange Is The New Black" were virtually shut out, taking only three prizes between them ("True Detective" and "Fargo" both winning for directing, and "Fargo" took Best Miniseries), while other favorites like "Game Of Thrones" and "Mad Men" came out empty handed. Instead, "Modern Family" took three awards, including Ty Burrell for Best Supporting Actor, while "Breaking Bad" took three acting prizes, including a fourth for Bryan Cranston along »

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.
As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).
The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

America’s version of the TV BAFTA’s, The Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles last night. The cream of the televisual crop were out in force to celebrate the occasion. Whilst several big name shows including Game of Thrones and True Detective where up for several categories, it was Breaking Bad that scooped-up the main acting prizes which are whole-heartedly deserved and a fitting way to say goodbye to the show which ended last year.
Other shows that performed well were comedy series Modern Family for which Ty Burrell won best actor, and American Horror Story: Coven which saw both Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates take home the big acting trophies. Everyone’s favourite British sleuth also did well as Benedict Cumberbatch won for his role in series Sherlock. See below for the winners list in full and we’ve also put in the moving tribute from Billy Crystal for his friend, »
