Emmys 2011: The complete winners list

No Comments
Mad Men won its fourth consecutive Emmy and Modern Family claimed its second at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday that aired live on Fox.
Despite other predictable wins like Kate Winslet for Mildred Pierce, The Amazing Race for best competition reality show and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart winning for its ninth straight year, the three-hour ceremony hosted by Glee’s Jane Lynch featured plenty of first-time victors: Peter Dinklage won for Game of Thrones, Kyle Chandler for Friday Night Lights, Martin Scorsese for directing Boardwalk Empire, Barry Pepper for The Kennedys and veteran film and TV actress Margo Martindale for the FX drama Justified. “Sometimes, things just take time,” she said, fighting back tears. “With time comes great appreciation.”
Julie Bowen also won her first Emmy for Modern Family, but viewers probably didn’t hear her speech because they were too busy staring at her very low-cut dress. Her win was immediately followed by a prize for her on-camera hubby (and first-time victor) Ty Burrell, who performed a well-received stand-up act instead of muttering a bunch of ho-hum thank-yous. Early in the show, the ABC comedy also dominated in the directing and writing categories, prompting Lynch to quip, “Welcome back to the Modern Family awards!”
