The votes have been tallied and the nominations revealed, but we've still got a bunch of nagging questions about the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards that just won't go away. We've already given you our reasons why Salmon Fishing In the Yemen scored highly unexpected nods in three major categories. So we decided to round up the rest of the biggest headscratchers and give you some answers.
Why was Smash placed in the Musical or Comedy category, while Nashville was a Drama contender?
Those shows do seem rather similar in terms of format, don't they? They both feature stardom-obsessed crooners who are known to break out into song at the drop of a hat. And they both feature original songs. So what's the difference? Here's our theory: A nomination for at least one musical show was necessary to continue to justify the musical part of the Best TV Series—Comedy or Musical category, since they'd be crazy to consider nominating Glee these days. They went with Smash because it's conceived of primarily as a musical, with whatever "drama" it contains being clearly subsidiary. And how could any series that featured all that Ellis nonsense be considered a drama? Nashville, however, is primarily conceived as a drama...with a musical component. Its songs are subsidiary to the soapy drama. The storylines drive the songs—see that strong recent episode in which Connie Britton's Rayna and Hayden Panettiere's Juliette have a Mozart & Salieri-style joint songwriting session—rather than the songs driving the storylines. "Telescope" is a tuneful ditty indeed, but it wasn't the focal point of its episode, while, say, the Bollywood number on Smash very much was that episode's showcase. Hence, Nashville gets put up in the Drama categories and Smash goes in the Musical or Comedy field.
At This Point, Will Nicole Kidman Be Nominated for Literally Anything?
Apparently, yes. Even when that movie is The Paperboy and she's peeing on Zac Efron. That's how much the Hollywood Foreign Press, and by extension any award-issuing voting body, loves her. You could also say that Aaron Sorkin, whose new HBO series The Newsroom beat out Mad Men for a Best TV Drama nom, has now reached a similar level of kneejerk fete-ing, despite the mixed reviews his show garnered during its summer run.
Why is Taylor Swift Eligible for the Globes but not the Oscars?
Actually, as far as we can tell, Taylor Swift's song "Safe & Sound" was very much eligible to be nominated for Best Original Song at the Oscars. It was an original song written directly for The Hunger Games and appeared only on the Hunger Games soundtrack. And yet, while "Safe & Sound" got a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song, it didn't even make the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science's shortlist of contenders, a shortlist that includes Rick Ross' "100 Black Coffins" from Django Unchained, Katy Perry's "Wide Awake" from her documentary Part of Me, Adele's "Skyfall," and even the Matthew McConaughey original "Ladies of Tampa" from Magic Mike. I guess the Academy just didn't care for Swift's rootsy Americana lullaby. Maybe she can write a break-up song about Oscar.
Could Rachel Weisz Really Be a Best Actress Contender Come Oscar Time?
At this point, most definitely. Weisz' heartbreaking turn as Hester, a 1950s judge's wife who has an affair with an RAF officer (Tom Hiddleston), in The Deep Blue Sea already snagged her the New York Film Critics Circle's Best Actress prize. Her Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Drama will make her a heavyweight contender against other sure-thing nominees Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook), and Naomi Watts (The Impossible).
Why is American Horror Story still considered a miniseries?
You would think that having a second season would automatically invalidate the macabre FX drama from being labeled a miniseries. After all, Downton Abbey was relegated to the Best TV Drama category for its second year. But the key distinction with AHS is revealed in the punctuation of its title, American Horror Story: Asylum. Co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk envisioned the show as an anthology series, with each season telling a distinct and standalone story. It may be a bit of a cheat, considering how many actors from the first season have returned for Asylum (albeit as different characters), but the HFPA were convinced, and classified it as a miniseries. If Asylum had to compete in the Drama categories it would almost assuredly have been shut out.
Has Mad Men lost its awards luster?
Based on its showing among the nominees, it sure seems like it. AMC's critically adored series, long considered among the very best to be found on TV, only picked up a single nomination: for Jon Hamm as Best Actor in a TV Drama. (It's four year Best Drama winning-streak was broken at the Emmys in September by Homeland.) Which is a shame, since Season 5, which aired earlier in 2012, was among its very best. We're particularly sad that Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, and Jessica Paré were all shut out because Mad Men this year would have been nothing without its Mad Women.
Is Ben Affleck officially more respected as a director than an actor?
Even a month ago it seemed assured that Affleck would land a Best Actor Oscar nomination. Now that eventuality is in doubt, based on the all-but-guaranteed nods for Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln), John Hawkes (The Sessions), Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook), Denzel Washington (Flight), and Hugh Jackman (Les Misérables). And yet Affleck is a shoo-in for Best Director. Well, that's exactly what happened with the Golden Globe noms, as well. Affleck was acknowledged for his work behind the camera but not in front of it.
What is Magic City?
You're not in the wrong to ask that since the Starz original series has never drawn a larger audience than 500,000. Well, Magic City, a period drama set in 1959 about a Miami hotel manager (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) trying to keep the glitz alive in the aftermath of the Cuban Revolution, scored character actor Danny Huston a Best Supporting Actor nod. When it comes to the HFPA acknowledging Florida-set entertainment, though, we're wondering if they somehow confused Magic City with Magic Mike.

Every year, when the Golden Globe nominations are announced, there are some actors and shows that make the cut that are so to be expected. For the 70th Annual awards, these included the likes of Boardwalk Empire, Claire Danes for Homeland, Sofia Vergara for Modern Family, Nicole Kidman for Hemingway & Gellhorn, and so many more. But there was also a nod that happened to befall the list that just came out of the blue. Danny Huston earned a nominee for his work on the quite unwatched starz drama Magic City.
But this isn't the first time that nominations have come from nowhere. It actually has happened quite often in the past. Take a look at five nominations that fell out of the clear, blue sky.
Out of Nowhere TV Nominations:
1. Danny Huston, from Magic City, for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television in 2013
We're not questioning Huston's talents, but more so the fact that he was nominated for a show that basically nobody watches. Very few people have subscriptions to starz, so it's odd to see someone from a show that has few followers make the cut. The premiere of the show only drew in 295,000 viewers in April, according to Deadline.com.
2. Piper Perabo, from Covert Affairs, for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series - Drama in 2011
Up against the likes of Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy), and Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer), Perabo seemed like an odd fit given the spectrum of talents seen in this group.
3. Jennifer Love Hewitt, from The Client List, for Best Performance By An Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made For Television in 2011
Jennifer Love Hewitt nominated for best performance of anything besides a People's or Teen Choice Award seems like somewhat of a joke. But the again, boobs and skin equal ratings — and Hewitt does a pretty good job at taking her clothes of in the Lifetime movie.
4. My Name Is Earl for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy in 2006
An odd show about odd people, and one that never truly attracted a large audience, it was surprising to see this hillbilly-centric comedy with the hyper-specific mission-a-week plot line take a nod for the Globes’ Best Comedy Series.
5. Malcolm in the Middle for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy in 2000
The quirky family sitcom that kicked off the single-camera format might be known as a syndication staple/kickoff for Bryan Cranston’s career now. But the sleepy, younger-veering comedy came across as quite a surprise when it ranked among adult favorites like Sex and the City, Ally McBeal, Frasier, and Will & Grace for Best Comedy Series.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association officially put the mad in Mad Men on Thursday morning when they snubbed the brilliant, beloved AMC drama in the Best Drama Series category, among others for the 2013 Golden Globes. The perennial nominated series (which won in the Best Drama Series category back in 2008) only earned one nomination, for its leading man Jon Hamm. The supporting cast, on the other hand — many of whom had a standout season, including Christina Hendricks, Jared Harris, and Elisabeth Moss — were completely shut out of the race. In Mad Men's place for Best Drama is the divisive Aaron Sorkin HBO drama The Newsroom.
But Mad Men's egregious exclusion wasn't the only noticeable Globes snub in the Best Drama race. Sons of Anarchy, FX's consistently overlooked, yet consistently well-executed, well-written, and well-acted (none of their cast, not even last year's winner Katey Sagal made the cut) was left in the dust, as was Game of Thrones, The Good Wife, The Walking Dead, and newcomer Nashville. (Its leading ladies Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere, however, were not overlooked by the HFPA.)
The comedy categories had more than its fair share of shockers and snubs. NBC's campy musical drama Smash somehow landed in the Best Comedy Series category (does unintentional comedy count?) and bumped critical darling and fan favorites like Parks and Recreation (Globes co-host Amy Poehler earned that show's only nomination, despite its all-around great ensemble), Louie, Community, Veep, New Girl, and, despite going into its final season, Globes co-host and Best Actress nominee Tina Fey's 30 Rock didn't make the cut.

The 70th Annual Golden Globes will take place on Sunday, January 13, 2013.

This Thursday, the Golden Globe nominations will be announced. I know that you're... slightly interested. Now, you likely won't be logging onto the Internet as soon as you get up to see if your favorite movies and actors were nominated like you do on Oscar nod morning, but you still care. You care because your friends will want to talk about the nominations at the bar and you don't want to seem like some idiot who's pop culture illiterate.
Also, the Golden Globes, with their boozy reputation and clandestine voting schemes, is the fun awards show of the season. Wacky things happen. People are in the bathroom when they should be on stage and Matt LeBlanc is walking home with trophies when he should be at home lighting cigars with residual checks he set on fire. So, in honor of the Golden Globes' devil-may-care attitude, I've compiled a list of my Golden Globes fantasy winners. These folks have a better chance of becoming the seventh Jolie-Pitt than winning — let alone being nominated — but, hey, it's the Globes. Wackier things have happened.
And don't worry, I'll get serious again around Oscar time.
Best Movie, Drama: Silver Linings Playbook: I don't care what you (or the Hollywood Foreign Press) may say — this is a drama. Sure, there are yuks and chuckles, but this is essentially a movie about overcoming heartache and a mental illness. Do you know what the "dra" in "dramedy" stands for? Drama. That's what. So suck it. This should win.
Best Actor, Drama: John Hawkes, The Sessions: What did the Deadwood alum have to act with? Half of his face and a poker thing he puts in his mouth to dial the phone. That's what. Helen Hunt had her whole naked body and a giant forehead and she wasn't nearly as good.
Actress, Drama: Doona Bae, Cloud Atlas: Some people put this movie on their Worst of 2012 lists. They are jerks. This movie wasn't the best, but there were plenty of great things about it. The best was probably this unknown Korean actress who plays a robot who yearns to be free — not to mention several other roles.
Movie, Comedy or Musical: Magic Mike: There wasn't very many funny things in this male stripper movie, but there was a lot of music. And dance numbers. And grinding. And abs! Yes, this should be considered a musical, and I can't remember one that was shot better, had more pathos, or that featured Olivia Munn's boobs.
Actor, Comedy or Musical: Paul Rudd, Wanderlust or This is 40: Despite the fact that I haven't seen This Is 40 yet and Wanderlust was only pretty good (even though it did costar my arch nemesis, Jennifer Aniston), I can't ignore that Paul Rudd has been one of the best players in Hollywood for the better part of a decade. He deserves some recognition for something other than being an unlikely gay sex symbol.
Actress, Comedy or Musical: Anne Hathaway, Les Misérables: Just give her the damn thing already.
Supporting Actor, Movie: Matthew McConaughey's butt cheeks, Magic Mike: Oscar talk surrounding McConaughey has been amping up for months. And I simply don't understand it. As the film's strip club owner, the actor played the same vaguely leering, twangily insincere guy he always plays. But his ass? At his age? That's what they make trophies for, people. This year, the men deserve as many "golden globes" jokes as Christina Hendricks' boobs get.
Supporting Actress, Movie: Rebel Wilson, Pitch Perfect: The middling puff pastry that was Pitch Perfect was slightly stale, if not for one big dollop of Australian cream smacked in the middle. Yup, Fat Amy made the whole movie. Well, that and puke scene.
Best Animated Feature: ParaNorman: Usually, I watch kids' movies before I got to bed — no matter how tired I am, I'm not going to miss anything revelatory. But I stayed awake for this whole claymation extravaganza, which weaved plenty of adult-centric jokes into its teen-centric storyline. Fun for the whole family, except the dog. He can't wear 3D glasses.
Best Foreign Language Film: Jiro Dreams of Sushi: I didn't even see this, but it was the only foreign language film that came out last year that I could think of. Congrats!
Best Director: Ang Lee, Life of Pi: This movie has a story about as shallow as a booze puddle in the Lohan's front yard (I'm not quite sure what that means), but it was gorgeous. Those glowing islands! Those whales! That sinking ship! That Tiger, which Lee must have used a whole fleet of trainers to train! Oh, wait. The tiger was entirely CGI? Neve rmind. Give the award to Tyler Perry.
Best Television Show, Drama: Mad Men: Sure Homeland was good, but Don Draper and company got robbed at the Emmys for its stellar season. They even had The Beatles. The Beatles always win. It's in their contract somewhere.
Best Television Actor, Drama: Damien Lewis, Homeland: There are two reasons he should win. 1. Gingers in Hollywood don't get the respect they deserve, and 2. He looks at Claire Danes' ugly cry and doesn't crack up laughing. That is talent.
Best Television Actress, Drama: Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men: If this show ends before she wins something, it will be one of the greatest travesties in pop culture, just under the fact that The Wire never won an Emmy and Topo Gigio is not an EGOT.
Best Television Show, Comedy or Musical: The Musical Numbers on Smash: The show as a whole leaves plenty to be desired. There were annoying characters, nonsense plots, and scarves so awful, they make you want to fashion them into a noose and hang yourself. But the series' musical numbers? Oh, the musical numbers! Pure heaven, with great set pieces, intricate choreography, and witty lyrics. If this show was just numbers, it would be heaven.
Best Television Actor, Musical or Comedy: Max Greenfield, New Girl: Sorry, Zooey D, there is only one reason I watch this show, and it has nothing to do with your bangs.
Best Television Actress, Musical or Comedy: Parker Posey, Louie: Yeah, yeah, yeah, she was only in three episodes and barely in two of them. But the one she was in — "Daddy's Girlfriend Part 2" — was one of the best episodes of television all year. God, Hollywood has been wasting her since the '90s.
Best Miniseries or Television Movie: Restless: The second and final episode of this twisty spy drama airs on Sundance Channel on Friday and you should really check it out, if only for Charlotte Rampling and Michelle Dockery (of Downton Abbey fame). Also, my boyfriend helped develop it and since this is my fantasy Golden Globes, it wins and he gets a big raise and then buys me something fancy. That's the way these things work, right?
Best Actor, Miniseries or Television Movie: Toby Jones, The Girl: Let's take a minute to think about Toby Jones. He played Truman Capote the same year Philip Seymour Hoffman won the Oscar for Capote and now his take on Alfred Hitchcock is going up against Anthony Hopkins' version in Hitchcock. Give this poor guy a break!
Best Actress, Miniseries or Television Movie: Lindsay Lohan, Liz & Dick: You know you want to see this happen, if only to see what she wears, how everyone reacts, and what she says in her acceptance speech. Admit it.
Best Supporting Actor, Television: Adam Pally, Happy Endings: While there are popular favorites like Big Bang Theory, critical favorites like Parks and Recreation, and things that everyone on the Internet has a total inexplicable boner for like Community, there is one stealth show that is the best sitcom on TV. It is Happy Endings. Max is the best character. He deserves to win. BOOM!
Best Supporting Actress, Television: Anyone but Maggie Smith: Seriously, lady. We keep giving you awards and you keep not showing up. No more. No more, I say!

Is On the Road the first successful attempt to bring Jack Kerouac's beloved novel to the screen? Depends on who you ask. Fans of the Beat Generation will undoubtedly love this film directed by Walter Salles and adapted by Jose Rivera and those familiar with Kerouac's mythos might be able to play along. But if you've never heard of this group of writers and miscreants you might be eating their dust.
On the Road is occasionally beautiful and entirely too long. Its narrator Sal Paradise Kerouac's alter ego is played by Sam Riley with a sort of muted watchfulness; he's an outsider the writer narrating it all along for the ride but the script doesn't do justice to the tastes of Kerouac's writing (although we get a taste in some small voiceovers). Garrett Hedlund owns this movie from top to bottom as Dean Moriarty with his buoyant earthy sexuality and total irresponsibility. In reality Dean is the sort of user and mooch that would be a total drain of energy and resources but we see him as Sal does: alive free sensual somehow utterly honest in his protestations of love and honesty despite his constant betrayals.
Dean is absolutely the sex and love object of the movie his pansexual groove attracting and scaring Sal and in a way breaking his heart. Dean also breaks the hearts of Marylou his on-again off-again child bride played by Kristen Stewart; Camille the mother of his children played by Kirsten Dunst; and most movingly Carlo Marx the alter ego of Allen Ginsberg who is played by Tom Sturridge. Sturridge is excellent as the lovelorn poet who's alternately suicidal and joyous and his scenes with Hedlund are some of the most erotic and moving. The female characters get short shrift especially Marylou who lacks much of a personality; how much of what she does is egged on by Dean and how much is of her own volition? The ballyhoo over her nude scenes were overblown by half; although they're somewhat sexy they're overshadowed by all of the sexual tension between the leads.
Two of the most interesting characters in On the Road are Old Bull Lee and his wife Jane. Bull is the alter ego of William S. Burroughs and Jane is Joan Vollmer Burroughs's common-law wife and the mother of his children. (Vollmer a writer in her own right was accidentally killed by Burroughs.) Jane played by Amy Adams is bizarre and fascinating a wild-haired lady and drug addict and mother of Bull's children but not much more than that. One could watch an entire movie of Viggo Mortensen playing Bull a sharp-dressed heroin addict who nods off with his child in his arms and strips off his clothes to get in an orgone accumulator he built in his backyard. The movie barely makes a pit stop at their crumbling Louisiana farm and their importance in Sal's life and the Beat generation is never quite explained.
One might argue that the loopy timeline of the film mimics the unending road trip of Dean's life but it doesn't serve the final product. Incorporating more of Kerouac's writing as voice-overs or something similar would have given it more life the kind of vivacity Kerouac sought out in spades which is why he tolerated Dean's vagaries for so long. More than most movies it feels like On the Road could have gone in any direction expanding or reducing characters shortening the trips to concentrate on the characters more emphasizing the effects of their missing fathers or not and it's this wishy-washiness that undermines the movie. It feels much longer than it is. It's a loving tribute to its subjects and a movie that acts as a showcase for rising stars Hedlund and Riley but it fizzles when it should burn.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Experiments With Polygamy: Way to go, JLH! Hewitt will slip on her exec producer hat for Mrs. G’s Bigger Love, an hourlong drama based on an entry in Heather Gatticio’s blog, Derfwad Manor. The story focuses on a bored Seattle housewife, whose fictional, fantastical entry about polygamy leads to fame, fortune, a book deal — and the need to perpetuate the myth that the story is true. [Deadline]
Rihanna's Got Style: Well, duh. But now she has a show on the Style Network — a show in which she will star, and exec produce. Good things she already has a ton of hats, cause she certainly needs to wear em' (ha)! The show is called Styled to Rock, and will feature 12 up-and-coming designers who will create pieces for A-List talent. There will be 10 hourlong episodes, which will debut in 2013. [Deadline]
Peggy, You've Really Got It Now: Spoiler alert! Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) from Mad Men — who left Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce last season, will be returning this year. Photographers caught the actress filming in Los Angeles, and she was looking better than ever — that raise has certainly done wonders for her wardrobe. [Vulture]
ABC Gets Super Weird: ABC has officially decided to get quirky this summer: The network picked up a 13-episode straight-to-series supernatural/UFO drama called Weird Desk. It will focus on a clandestine, X-Files-esque intelligence team that investigates paranormal activity, based on alleged real-life mysteries. [Deadline]
PaleyFest Announces Eclectic Line-Up: Once Upon a Time, The Newsroom, and Revolution are the first three shows that will definitely have events at this year's PaleyFest, an annual festival that brings together current and past beloved shows. The full lineup will be announced Jan. 9, but tickets are already available on the PaleyFest site. See below Tweet for proof:

While the annual Sundance film festival continues to be a place that launches young filmmaking talent, over the years it's also become a star-studded publicity machine attracting big names looking to debut their new films. The list of celebs attending the 2013 festival for the out-of-competition premieres of their new movies should not disappoint.
The most anticipated premiere won't happen until the end of the festival, when the Steve Jobs biopic jOBS, starring Ashton Kutcher as the Apple guru, is honored as the closing night film.
Oscar-winning screenwriters (and sometime sitcom stars) Nat Faxon and Jim Rash will make their directorial debut with a film they wrote called The Way, Way Back, starring Steve Carell and Toni Collette.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt will take it one step further by starring in his self-penned directorial debut, DonJon's Addiction, alongside Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore.
There's also Lovelace, with Amanda Seyfried as the titular '70s porn star, the third union of Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy in Before Midnight, and Jane Campion's six-hour epic Top of the Lake, among many others.
The documentaries premiering out of competition cover diverse topics, including Wikileaks, Jeremy Lin, multiple sclerosis, Dick Cheney and more.

Some people believe in ghosts. Some people don't. It would seem like there is a pretty clear line that divides the group of believers from non-believers, but that's just not the case. According to story a Keira Knightley told Jay Leno Tuesday night, she once saw a ghost but still doesn't believe that they exist. Does that make any sense? Probably not to the rest of us, but to Knightley, well, it's as clear as day.
Here's what you missed last night on late night TV:
Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
Sally Field told Fallon about why she wanted to play Mary Todd Lincoln in Lincoln. "I've been waiting for Mary for a very long time as actors do, thinking, 'We're a mix. She belongs to me somehow,'" she said. "She was very much a flirt. She was an amazing woman. I don't even for a moment want to make fun of her. I feel very bonded with her."
Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!
Christina Applegate told Kimmel about a big change that is going on with her show, Up All Night, during its hiatus. "They are going to change us into a multi-cam show," she revealed. "What it means is we're going to have a [live] audience." She also talked about her 21-month-old daughter, Sadie, loving Christmas and Santa Claus. "We can hear her singing 'Jingle Bells' in her sleep, and singing 'Santa Claus Is Coming to Town' in her sleep," Applegate said. Applegate also presented Kimmel with a birthday gift. She gave him a fake candle and a pillow that she stole from the dressing room. How kind!
Late Show With David Letterman
Julianna Margulies chatted with Letterman about taking her husband on a surprise trip to Berlin. While they were there, her husband tried nine types of schnitzel at a restaurant, so Margulies was able to define exactly what a schnitzel is for Letterman. "There's different kinds because I had chicken schnitzel," she said. "It's like a sausage."
The Tonight Show With Jay Leno
Keira Knightley shared a story with Jay Leno about working on the play The Children's Hour with Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss. "She did have to go on with food poisoning one night," Knightley said. "It was quite interesting when you're on stage with someone who is about to vomit, and you're kind of going, 'I don't know whether we're going to get through this scene.' Then she was having to run off and come back on again. That was all quite exciting." Knightley also shared her views on ghosts: "I don't believe in ghosts, but yes I have seen one." What's the logic behind this? "I was staying at this hotel in Los Angeles," she said. "[I] walked into the sitting room, I had just got out of the shower. [There] was a guy sitting on the sofa and he had a burgundy shirt on, black hair. And I thought. 'Oh, some guy has come into my room.' I said to him, 'You are in my room.' And he disappeared. I don't think I'd been drinking. It was early in the morning. I can't figure out what it was." A ghost, Knightley! You saw a ghost! She also played a song for Leno by flicking her teeth.
Community star Joel McHale has started his own production company. He plans to make "really bad" shows. "Because of The Soup, we run out of clips sometimes," he said. His solution? "Let's not wait for clips. Let's just get drunk girls in the house now and get clips of that." In fact, McHale believes that it's these type of people who lack talent that truly make good TV. "If you are talentless, but very confident, you're going to have great career," he said.

It's the biggest night in television. But will it be the most surprising one? Turns out, not quite. Though there were a few shockers during Sunday's 64th annual Emmy Awards — for instance, Homeland's Damian Lewis wins over Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston — ABC's Modern Family was, per usual, the belle of the ball with four Emmys, including Outstanding Comedy series. Other big winners of the evening? Showtime's Homeland — which also picked up four wins, including Outstanding Drama — HBO's Game Change — which won four awards, including Best Miniseries or Movie — and Louis C.K., who won Outstanding Writing for his FX darling Louie and Outstanding Writing in a Variety, Music, or Comedy Special for Louis C.K. Live at the Beacon Theater.
