Modern Family Wins Big At Primetime Emmy Awards

19 September 2011 1:06 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Modern Family came full circle at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, winning the very first honours 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 the likes of Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) and Kathy Bates (Harry's Law) to take home the female equivalent for her turn in The Good Wife.

Meanwhile, Modern Family started the Emmys as it planned to go on - TV husband and wife Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen kicked off the celebrations by walking away with the acting honours for Outstanding Supporting Performance in a Comedy Series.

The hit programme went on to earn accolades for writing and directing before being crowned best comedy at the end of the event.

It was a good night for the Brits too - Kate Winslet was named Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for Mildred Pierce, while Downton Abbey's Dame Maggie Smith claimed the supporting actress in a miniseries or movie title.

Justin Timberlake (Saturday Night Live) and Gwyneth Paltrow (Glee) were already winners before the red carpet at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre was even rolled out - they were honoured at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards last weekend in the Outstanding Guest Performance in a Comedy Series category.

Awards host Jane Lynch opened the show with a song-and-dance sequence featuring Star Trek's Leonard Nimoy and the cast of Mad Men, while Andy Samberg's comedy rap trio The Lonely Island, featuring crooner Michael Bolton and R&B singer Akon, and rapper/actor LL Cool J, were among the musical acts providing the entertainment in between awards at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre.

"Inception," "The Social Network" Win Writers Guild Awards! Check Out Complete List of Winners and Nominees!

7 February 2011 7:24 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

As soon as we thought we could predict the outcome of the Oscars, here comes another surprise! This one's brought to you by the Writers Guild of America. Picked for Best Original Screenplay was Christopher Nolan's "Inception." The director, famously dissed for not getting a Best Director Oscar nomination, may just win the Best Original Screenplay come Oscar night. Oscar front-runner, "The King's Speech" was not nominated because it didn't quality under union rules which prompted Nolan to say during his WGA acceptance award that he looked forward to a time when he could accept the award "without qualification."

That could be the beginning of a great script Mr. Nolan, go write it :happy

For adapted screenplay, I'm happy to report that Aaron Sorkin's fantastic script won! Based on "The Accidental Billionaires" by Ben Mezrich, "The Social Network" was the only film last year that I predicted to win this very category. »

"I Love You Phillip Morris" came out of nowhere and secured a nod for the 2011 Writers Guild Awards. Based on the book by Steven McVicker, the film starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGRegor as prisoners in love received a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination.

'Hawaii Five-0' gets plum spot after NFL playoff; 'Pretty Little Liars,' 'Craigslist Killer' score big Monday

4 January 2011 3:21 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Chew on these tasty morsels of TV news:

"Hawaii Five-0" has been airing opposite NFL games for most of the season; now it will get a boost from football. CBS has scheduled a new episode of the show to air on Sunday, Jan. 23, after the network's coverage of the Afc Championship game. [CBS]

A federal appeals court has struck down the Federal Communications Commission's $1.2 million fine against 44 ABC stations for airing a shot of Charlotte Ross' bare behind on "NYPD Blue" way back in 2003. The decision by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals follows a ruling in a different case last year in which the court found the FCC's indecency standards unconstitutionally vague. [Broadcasting & Cable]

The return of "Pretty Little Liars" Monday night (Jan. 3) hit a series high in viewers, drawing 4.2 million people. The show also recorded its best numbers in ABC Family's key demos of adults 18-34 (1.4 million) and adults 18-49 (1.9 million). [ABC Family]
