2013 Primetime Emmy Nominations: Drama

Let’s face it.  Some of us go for comedy.  Others go for drama.

I freely admit to being a drama fan. 

Most of the nominees this year have been honored at previous Emmy Award shows.  A few are newcomers to the Primetime Emmys.  All of the actors and actresses listed have given performances that made viewers sit up and take notice.


And the Winner for Best Comedy Was...

This coming Sunday, September 23, we’ll get to see the winners of the Emmy Awards for 2012.  I’m looking forward to finding out who the victors are, though I have favorites I’m cheering for.

In my last blog, I listed some of the past winners for Best Drama.  So, naturally, I’m following that up with past winners for Best Comedy.  As before, I’m not including any series that are still being broadcast with new episodes.  But the list is pretty long, with a variety of settings -- from domestic to wartime to office – and with humor ranging from slapstick to satire to dramedy.

We’re still a couple of weeks away from the Emmy Awards show, but I thought this might be a good time to look at the history of the Emmys and the programs honored in years past.

And the Emmy Goes To...

EmmyLike many people, last Sunday I watched the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards. Although not as glitzy and glamorous as the Academy Awards, I do enjoy seeing all my favorite television personalities in one room. Unlike the Oscars, where the top prizes are practically certain a few weeks before the awards show, the Emmys tend to have more surprises. This year the awards were particularly unpredictable, with frontrunners passed over for newcomers and underdogs. It certainly made for an exciting evening!

2011 Primetime Emmy Nominees

EmmyLast Thursday the nominees for the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards were announced. Amidst all the Harry Potter pandemonium of last week, I missed the initial announcement, but I’m glad to see that some of my favorite shows, actors and actresses have been nominated for awards this year. Although I don’t care quite as much for the Emmys as I do for the Oscars, I do have firm opinions about who I think should win in each category (and who I think should have been nominated). A number of categories this year seem to have obvious frontrunners. It will be interesting to see if the safe choices win, or if there are any upsets.

"The Emmy goes to..."

The major Emmy Awards were handed out this past Sunday night, and I was very happy to see some of my favorite actors and actresses receive much deserved attention.
