  1. I voted for Modern Family to win the “Outstanding Comedy” award, but I think Nurse Jackie is a better program.
    Just not “funny” as in lots of laughs.
    I’ve seen both seasons of Nurse Jackie, but not on 10 which shelved it as they do most things halfway decent.
    I’m surprised Modern Family has survived on 10!

  2. I always thought that the Emmy Awards were aired the Sunday immediately before the ‘Fall’ TV season started (which I believe starts 20th September).

    Has that changed this year or was it always a few weeks prior?

  3. Could you note that the Guest categories were already presented at the Creative Arts Emmys? 🙂
    I was looking forward to watching the broadcast on ten, but then I’d have to miss Skins on SBS!

  4. So once again FTA is left in the dark, airing ‘highlights’ 12 hours later did they even have an option to show them live on TEN from 10am? Maybe next year with 11 things will changed? But I for one will be recording E! and Fox8 then watching them later and skipping the boring bits myself 🙂
