And the Winners Are…. List of the 2011 Emmy Award Winners

Modern Family was the big winner at the 63rd annual Emmy Awards, taking home both supporting comedy acting awards (Ty Burell and Julie Bowen) and Outstanding Comedy Series. Well deserved if you ask me.

Mad Men won its fourth award for Outstanding Drama Series (Yes!) while Downtown Abbey won for Outstanding Directing For A Miniseries, Movie Or A Dramatic Special. I’ve been sitting on Downton Abbey for months now so I guess that means I have to watch it.

In the acting catagories, Jim Parsons (Big Bang Theory) won for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy and in something that was a surprise, Melissa McCarthy won Outstanding Actress in a Comedy for Mike & Molly

In the dramatic categories, Kyle Chandler won Outstanding Actor in a Drama for Friday Night Lights and Julianna Margulies got her Outstanding Actress in a Drama for The Good Wife.

Peter Dinklage deservedly won Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series for his work on HBO’s Game of Thrones while Margo Martindale won Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series for Justified.

And finally, Kate Winslet is one more award down on her quest of EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) glory having one Outstanding Leading Actress in a Mini-series or Movie for Mildred Pierce.
