Now that the drama and comedy categories have been given, the award has moved onto the miniseries or TV movie.
We start off with Jessica Lange winning for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or A Movie. Really, was this a surprise to anyone? This award was hers for the taking. I know the Commercial Break staff wanted Jessica to win and she gave a lovely speech. Next up is the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or A Movie. Tom Berenger wins for AMC’s Hatfields & McCoys. His awards speech is so long, the music plays him off.
A very sweet “In Memoriam” for those we have lost this year. I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Clarke Duncan and it was very sad when he passed. We also lost the hilarious Phyllis Diller.
Julianne Moore wins for Game Change in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or A Movie. She rocked the role as Sarah Palin. I’m happy for her and her win, but I would have been so happy to hear Connie Britton’s name when they ripped open that envelope. Kevin Costner wins Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or A Movie for Hafields & McCoys. This was a huge show for the History channel. In a huge shock to me, Game Change wins for Outstanding Miniseries or A Movie. I really thought this award was going to American Horror Story or Hatfields & McCoys. Side Note: when did I miss that Tom Hanks was associated with the film Game Change?
Well, that’s all folks! I hope you enjoyed the Emmys this year! I thought Jimmy Kimmel did a splendid job hosting and it was a great show!
