And the Emmy Goes To…Aug 30, 2010 @ 10:21 am
Claire Danes, for her title role in the HBO film Temple Grandin! At last night’s Emmys, a slew of old favorites—and a few new ones—took home the coveted statuettes. Winning Outstanding Drama Series was three-peater Mad Men, while newbie Modern Family took home the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. Jane Lynch helped Glee‘s Emmy count rise to three, nabbing the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress thanks to her role as the scheming cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, while Kyra Sedgwick won her first Emmy (after five consecutive nods) for her portrayal of Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson in The Closer. Edie Falco picked up another statue for her arsenal, but this time it was a comedy award for her role as the harsh, but lovable Nurse Jackie. To see the full list of winners, visit Emmys.com.
