Minorities and women haven’t achieved significant progress in directing series TV, according to a survey from the Directors Guild of America, with Caucasian directors accounting for 81% of all primetime episodes while female directors were hired on only 14% during the past season.
The DGA survey covers more than 3,500 episodes and includes broadcast, basic cable, premium cable, and high budget original content series made for the Internet.
The report also showed that Caucasian males directed 69% of all episodes; minority males directed 17%; Caucasian females directed 12% and minority females directed 2% of all episodes.
The 14% figure for female directors matches the number for the 2012-13 season.
“Unfortunately, it can be shockingly difficult to convince the people who control hiring to make even small improvements to their hiring practices,” said DGA president Paris Barclay. “But the end result is something worth fighting for. This should matter to all of us, as a culture, as an industry, »

Jeff Jensen: Melissa, for all the self-serving yet correct talk about how expansive and diverse and ambitious television has become over the past few years, the Emmys made TV seem rather small last night.
Maybe I lost my sense of humor over the summer (too much Rectify and Ferguson, I guess), but Seth Meyers didn’t work for me. The Late Night comedian—at his best when seated behind a desk, gleefully reading his sharp, tart jokes and engaging guests with smart chat—kept the show flowing and didn’t fumble. He was an effective game manager, but nothing more. »

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, »

Julianna Margulies got her second Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for “The Good Wife,” and Bryan Cranston took one more bow as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama for “Breaking Bad.”

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, »

Seth Meyers opened tonight's Emmy Awards with quite a few jokes about the fact that the ceremony was held on a Monday night rather than a Sunday night before opening things up to the first presenter: none other than Amy Poehler, who handed out the night's first award, for supporting actor in a comedy, to Modern Family 's Ty Burrell. Other awards went to: Writing in a Comedy Series: Louis Ck, Louie Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: Allison Janney, Mom Directing in a Comedy Series: Gail Mancuso, Modern Family Lead Actor in a Comedy Series: Jim Parsons, The Big »

The Emmys honor the best performances on television, but the telecast is all about celebrating the best speeches. Here’s how we called it:
1. Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston, Lead Actor in a Drama Series: It was Cranston’s night. He had the perfect amount of humility (“Even I thought about voting for Matthew”), humor (“I love you, especially those scenes in bed,” he told Anna Gunn) and inspiration (find your passion, Sneaky Petes).

Breaking Bad and Modern Family once again took the top prizes (full winners list). That said, there were a few surprises Monday night at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards:
That low-key intro: No big production number. No song and dance. No pre-taped sketch. Just host Seth Meyers jumping straight into a traditional monologue (and a decently funny one too).

The easiest way to win an Emmy is to have already won an Emmy, and rarely has that wisdom proved more true than at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, where "Breaking Bad" and "Modern Family" repeated last year's best drama and comedy series wins, and where you had to squint sometimes to find a person and/or show that hadn't accepted one of these trophies before. Beyond the top two prizes, 16 of the remaining 24 awards presented during Monday night's telecast went to people who had won before — often in that same category, and for that same show. The first hour of the show alone featured exactly zero new winners, and only Allison Janney from "Mom" was winning for a role (and category) for which she had not won previous — and it was her sixth overall Emmy and second this month (after a guest acting win for "Masters of Sex").

Billy Crystals moving tribute to Robin Williams at the EmmysEmmy Awards: full list of winners
A Quick Summary: Breaking Bad won just about everything and everyone cheered. So did Modern Family and everyone grumbled. British people won a whole bunch of awards too for Sherlock and stuff. Barely any of them showed up to get their trophies. Maybe theyre mad that we call it soccer? I dont know. Seth Meyers kinda sucked, Sofia Vergara was turned into a prop, everyone is white and male, and nothing every changes and the Emmys is awful. In other news, the Oscars is only six months away.
Thanks for joining us and goodnight!
Alright everyone, thats it for the Emmys. Enjoy your local news and lets get together next year »

Outstanding Drama Series: Breaking Bad
Outstanding Comedy Series: Modern Family
Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series: Louis C.K., [link »
In a night marked by a few upsets and a host of repeat winners, “Breaking Bad” grabbed its second consecutive Emmy for best drama series while “Modern Family” made it a record-tying fifth consecutive win for comedy series.
The surprise wins at the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards came not from buzzed-about newbies such as Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” or HBO’s “True Detective” but lower-profile contenders including “Sherlock: His Last Vow.” HBO’s “The Normal Heart” and FX’s “Fargo” prevailed as expected for movie and miniseries, respectively, but the PBS drama “Sherlock” wound up leading the Emmy field overall with a total of seven wins — a result that no Emmy prognosticator managed to forecast.

Never again, TV Academy. Never again. I don't care if NBC has to do the Emmys in August because of football and if NBC is scared of going head-to-head with a competing award show. Doing the Emmys on Monday is just wrong. But we shall trudge on! Seth Meyers is hosting. Some fantastic TV shows and actors are nominated. Follow along. Comment below. Join the fun. Make the fun. 8:00 p.m. Et. That was some of the worst Red Carpet pre-show I've ever watched between E! and NBC. I never thought I'd miss Ryan Seacrest, but there ya go! 8:00 p.m. Seth Meyers was just outside being interviewed by Billy Bush just two minutes ago. How will he make it inside? How?!?!? 8:00 p.m. A countdown! 20 seconds to go. 8:00 p.m. And now Seth is inside on-stage. How Is That Possible, Billy Bush?!? 8:01 p.m. »
