64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards: And The Emmy Goes To …

Earlier tonight in Los Angeles, the 2012 Emmys were handed out in Primetime TV’s biggest night. Hosted by the ever entertaining Jimmy Kimmell, the awards proved to be quite an interesting evening. From hot and cold comedic moments (Tracy Morgan?) to panning of the same handful of faces in the audience (hello again, Clare Danes), there were a few surprises tonight (Damien Lewis), a couple snubs (Cat Deeley! Jim Parons! Bryan Cranston?) and a few of “oh ya, we predicted that” moments. Homeland won big in the Drama category, while Modern Family snagged quite a few comedic accolades early on. What did you think about tonight’s awards and the winners (or losers)? Sound off!
