There were really only two major things that gayed up this year’s 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards that aired last night on Fox. Jane Lynch and “Modern Family.” But they also dominated much of the show.
“Modern Family” took home fives of the night’s major comedy awards including Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy (Julie Bowen), Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy (Ty Burrell), Best Directing in a Comedy (Michael Alan Spiller), Best Writing in a Comedy Series (Steven Levitan and Jeffrey Richman) and Outstanding Comedy Series. During his acceptance speech Richman thanked his partner.
Jane Lynch hosted and did an amazing job. She started off the show with a full on song and dance number and kept the night interesting with a slew of tasteful zingers. Her style definitely reminded me of Ellen DeGeneres.
In straight news: “Mad Men” took home a fourth consecutive win for Best Drama Series, Charlie Sheen showed up and was creepy, Ashton Kutcher and John Cryer also showed up and weren’t funny and Kyle Chandler finally won for long-time role on “Friday Night Lights.”
