The 2012 Emmy Awards once again attempted to reward the best and brightest of the television season. While there were dozens of deserving nominees, only a select few took home the Emmy honors.
On the comedy side, “Modern Family” continued its Emmy dominance with wins in both the supporting actor and actress categories for Eric Stonestreet and Julie Bowen as well as the win for “Outstanding Comedy Series” — the show’s third−straight win in the category. The third time was also the charm for Julia Louis−Dreyfus, who won best comedy actress for her role in “Veep” — her third Emmy win across three separate roles.
“Homeland” was this year’s big drama winner, taking home the statue for “Outstanding Dramatic Series” as well as wins in the best lead actress and actor categories for stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis. This ended “Mad Men’s” four−year streak of winning the top prize and also left the AMC program empty handed among the big awards of the evening.
