10:55 Outstanding Comedy Series
How much love is in this room for presenter Michael J. Fox? He gets a lovely standing ovation. I guess they’re excited, like I am, that Marty McFly made it back in time.
And the winner is: “Modern Family”
Even the producers are not surprised and start playing off executive producer Steven Levitan to avoid overrun.（最佳喜剧再度被《摩登家庭》揽入怀中）
10:48 Outstanding Drama Series
And the winner is: “Homeland”
So “Mad Men” is stymied in its attempt to be the first show to win five in a row.
Producer Alex Gansa says he’s going to keep talking until he gets cut off. He congratulates the Showtime family on their first best series win.（最佳剧情归属于本届艾美奖大热剧集《国土安全》
9:36 Outstanding Actress in a Drama
And the winner is: Claire Danes for “Homeland.” Again, I say, exceptional. She has been terrific since “My So-Called Life” but this is a great vehicle for her. “Mandy Patinkin, holla!” she says, hilariously, to her co-star on the show. (Or maybe she said “challah”?) （剧情类最佳女主角——《国土安全》女主Claire Danes）
9:28 Outstanding Actor in a Drama
And the winner is: Damian Lewis for “Homeland.” He calls himself “one of those pesky Brits.” He says he doesn’t really believe in judging art but thought he’d show up just in case. This was a remarkable category also including Jon Hamm and Bryan Cranston, but Lewis was truly exceptional.（剧情类最佳男主角——《国土安全》男主Damian Lewis）
9:23 Outstanding Guest Actor/Actress in a Drama & Outstanding Director for a Drama
Giancarlo Esposito announces this one. I’m sad he lost in the Supporting Actor race but glad to see he made the stage.
And the winners were: Jeremy Davies and Martha Plimpton who present the Directing award.
And the winner is: Tim Van Patten for “Boardwalk Empire” who is not there.
9:17 Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama
And the winner is: Dame Maggie Smith for “Downton Abbey”... who isn’t there, which is too bad because she probably would’ve given a great speech.（剧情类最佳女配归属于没有到现场的《唐顿庄园》老太太Maggie Smith）
9:15 Oustanding Writing for a Drama
And the winner is: Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa and Gideon Raff for “Homeland.” (Fun fact: I handed these guys their award at the Television Critics Association Awards in July for Outstanding Drama.) （最佳剧本归属于《国土安全》）
9:12 Jimmy’s Prank
Jimmy Kimmel announces he wants to pull a prank on everyone not watching. He wants everyone who is watching to Tweet or post on FB: “Oh my God Tracy Morgan just passed out onstage at the Emmys, turn on ABC.” We’ll see what happens. Over in my Twitter feed (@GlobeRodman) people are taking the bait and posting it.
9:04 Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama
And the winner is: Aaron Paul for “Breaking Bad.” This was an incredibly tough category, but I’m glad to see Paul win. He is clearly very touched and thanks the writers for not killing off his character. (Even though it hasn’t been scintillating, I feel like the show is moving quickly at least.) （《绝命毒师》Aaron Paul获得最佳剧情类男配角）
8:58 Outstanding Reality Show Host
Presenter Seth MacFarlane gives us a little Stewie to cover his gaffe of talking into the wrong microphone. He also gives us a Dunkleman shout out.
And the winner is: Tom Bergeron. This is a win I can get behind. He really does a remarkable job on a busy show with a lot of, literally, moving parts. He quips that he’s glad he won since fellow nominee Betty White always kicks his butt in their mixed martial arts class. He thanks Jeff Probst for not being nominated which helped. He thanks his family, “most of whom know who they are.” Great, short, funny speech. (No mention of “Evening Magazine” though.) （最佳真人秀主持人归属于《与星共舞》的主持人Tom Bergeron）
8:52 If the other competition shows really wanted to be competitive...
...they’d create some kind of “detour” when the Emmy ballots go out next year.
8:51 Outstanding Reality Competition
And the winner is: “The Amazing Race.” Seriously?（最佳真人秀节目goes to《急速前进》）
8:50 Reality Bites
We have moved on from comedy to the reality categories. If “The Amazing Race” wins again....
8:45 Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series
And the winner is: Julia Louis-Dreyfus for “Veep.” Matthew Gilbert called this one. Before she went onstage she hugged fellow nominee Amy Poehler and does a great bit where she starts reading Amy’s “thank you” speech and Poehler runs onstage with the right speech. She gives props to her fellow nominees. And then says she sees nothing funny about her being the Vice President of the United States. (If you’re not watching this show, she is truly fantastic on it.) (最佳喜剧女主角最终归属《副总统》主演Julia Louis-Dreyfus)
8:37 Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series
And the winner is: Jon Cryer. Wow. This his second win. Is this for his performance or his forebearance? “Something has clearly gone terribly wrong,” he says.(最佳喜剧男主角《好汉两个半》Jon Cryer)
8:31 Outsanding Guest Actor/Actress in a Comedy & Director for a Comedy
And the winners were: Jimmy Fallon and Kathy Bates. (These were already announced but it’s nice that they get to appear on the telecast.) Fallon and Bates announce the Directing winner: Steven Levitan of “Modern Family.” Clearly, it’s going to be another big night for “Modern Family.” Levitan jokingly thanks himself for hiring himself as a director when nobody else would.
8:23 Oustanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy
And the winner is: Julie Bowen of “Modern Family” for the second year in a row. She calls it an embarrassment of riches. She gives a lovely shout-out to the often not thanked editors and repeatedly, her nipple covers.(最佳女配角归属《摩登家庭》Claire的扮演者Julie Bowen）
8:20 Outstanding Writing in a Comedy
And the winner is: Louis C.K. (Or as we like to call him “Newton’s own.” Even though the announcer just mentioned that he was born in Washington D.C.) Friend, and fellow nominee and Bay Stater, Amy Poehler is happy for him.（《幸运路易》获得最佳喜剧剧本）
8:12 Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy
And the winner is: Eric Stonestreet, who wins for a second time, and beats out three of his castmates Ty Burrell, Ed O’Neill, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, whom he sweetly singles out in his speech. He says he wants to share this with any actor who has an audition tomorrow in Santa Monica.（最佳喜剧男配角归属《摩登家庭》Cameron扮演者Eric Stonestreet，这是他第二次拿奖啦~~）
8:05 p.m. “Thanks to Philo T. Farnsworth we have Honey Boo Boo.”
Jimmy Kimmel starts the night with a light touch poking fun at the self-absorption of Hollywood, a few quick jabs at both Mitt Romney and President Obama, and needles the broadcast networks for losing out in the nominations race to pay and basic cable. He says the Emmy academy is clearly sending the broadcast nets a message “and that message is show us your boobs.”
And we’re off. Zooey Deschanel, Connie Britton, Lena Dunham, Kathy Bates, Mindy Kaling, Christina Hendricks, and Martha Plimpton try to coax Jimmy Kimmel out of the ladies room because he’s scared to host and got bad Botox. He says he hates his face. They offer to “punch it back in” for him and each takes a swing until he looks normal. The best bit? When the five reality hosts who did an abysmal job a few years back offer to host in his place.
7:45 “Could it be hotter?”
This is why I don’t watch a lot of this pre-show stuff. Chris Harrison just asked Aaron Paul of “Breaking Bad” about the weather.
7:30 p.m. The 64th Primetime Emmys
“The night is dark and full of terrors.”
Oops, I mean it’s time for the Emmy awards! The night we celebrate all things TV. Or at least all things recognized as outstanding by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and which debuted between June 1, 2011 and May 31, 2012. Who are you rooting for? Will “Mad Men” five-peat? Will “Downton Abbey” clean up? Will “Modern Family” continue to dominate? Will Jimmy Kimmel make endless Honey Boo Boo jokes? We will soon find out.
