The Emmys: The Winners

For the most part, I was pretty happy with the show. Obviously the way they structured it with giving away most of the Comedy/Drama awards in the beginning, the show effectively slowed down a bit (and that's being generous). With that said, the show DID start off with a bang with a spirit group performances starring some of the Glee kids, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Joel McHale, Jane Lynch, Nina Dobrev, and Jon Hamm.

Most of the winners were also quite good. Sure there were a few repeat winners, but there were a ton of first-time winners and some upsets to keep the night interesting. Congratulations to all of the winners below!

As for my predictions, I went 6 for 10 getting all of the Drama acting categories completely and utterly wrong. But I predicted the two top prizes and kicked ass predicting the Comedy acting categories!

  1. Of course I'm psyched about Kyra. Biggest shock and best moment for me Although I've seen one episode only I felt happy that Archie Panjabi won, she seemed so happy and surprised.
