Emmys 2012: Why can't Jon Hamm ever win for 'Mad Men'? Bryan Cranston is not the only reason

It seems like Jon Hamm just can't catch a break.Every year that the so-called "most acclaimed drama on TV," "Mad Men," has been on the air, Hamm has gotten a lead acting Emmy nomination for playing the most important role on the show, Don Draper. And every single year, he's lost.This is despite the fact that he's been asked to carry much of the emotional load in the heavy AMC drama. Even though during the first four seasons he's had to play the ups and downs of a man trying to figure out who he is while swimming in the shark-infested waters of 1960s advertising, he's gone home from the Emmys without the top prize.The first three times Hamm lost, you could have jumped to the easy conclusion that Bryan Cranston's searing portrayal of Walter White in "Breaking Bad" was simply a better performance than Hamm's. But that theory got blown out of the water... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/08/emmys-2012-why-cant-jon-hamm-ever-win.html

TV Ratings: NBC's NFL match-up eclipses the Emmys

The 63rd annual Emmy broadcast may have been a hit with the 10 million viewers who tuned in for all or part of the show, but the TV love-fest was utterly crushed by NBC's Sunday night football matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons. In Emmy's defense, the game was of particular interest because it marked quarterback Michael Vick's return to his old home town for the first time since he was fired by the Falcons in the wake of that whole dog-fighting scandal.The Eagles/Falcons game drew 17.8 million viewers with a 10.9 rating/17 share for the night. FOX's Emmy broadcast trailed way behind with 10.3 million viewers (6.4/10). We should also point out that Emmy's numbers were down from last year, too -- when the broadcast drew 13.5 million viewers. CBS' came in third with 8.7 million (5.6/9), while ABC finished last with 5.1 million viewers (3.3/5).It's no surprise that football also... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/09/tv-ratings-nbcs-nfl-match-up-eclipses-the-emmys.html

Steve Jones Wants to Tear Off Rob Lowe's Face and Wear It (VIDEO)

Steve Jones is still a bit of an unknown commodity to most Americans, so having him host their special 'Countdown to the Emmys' (Sun., 7PM ET on FOX), was a great move by the network. It gives us some face-time with the man who will be the host of 'The X Factor.' As it is likely to be the biggest show of the fall, he may be on the cusp of Ryan Seacrest fame. On the way, though, he may have freaked Rob Lowe out a little bit. Luckily, Lowe's sons appeared to freak him out even more directly afterward. First, after Amanda Byram was interviewing Lowe and his family in a very traditional way for awhile, Jones interjected. "Rob, if I may," he said. "I would like to tear your face off and put it on my face." http://www.aoltv.com/2011/09/19/steve-jones-wants-tear-off-rob-lowes-face-wear-it-video/

Emmys 2011: Martin Scorsese Talks About His Directing Win for 'Boardwalk Empire'

The Oscar-winning director who has brought to life some of the most famous bad guys in the history of movies said he always wanted to do it on TV as well, because, explained  Martin Scorsese  backstage at the Emmys after winning the directing Emmy for  Boardwalk Empire, he "always dreamed of getting involved in a project where characters could be developed over a period of time, almost the way Victorian novels were written." Why is this story about the bad guys like many of his movies? "It goes back to a fascination America has with that story of the rise and also the fall that goes back to the very first gangster films made by  D.W. Griffith ," said Scorsese. "You’re fascinated by the rise because there’s a kind of vicarious thrill to that. But you want to see how that can all come apart."

Peter Dinklage Wins First Emmy For 'Game Of Thrones'

Peter Dinklage wins one for the geeks. 'Game of Thrones' picked up its first Emmy tonight after Dinklage won for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister. Surprisingly, Dinklage took the time to thank his dog sitter -- as well as his wife Erica Schmidt. "Wow, I followed Martin Scorsese," said a completely shocked Dinklage. "I couldn't do this without David Benioff and Dan Weiss, the producers, they were the first to call me and tell me about this part. HBO you're quite simply the best place to work for you; you let artists create." Dinklage not only picks up his first Emmy, but he also takes home the golden statue for his work in a fantasy drama -- a genre that often gets overlooked by the academy. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/09/18/peter-dinklage-emmy-game-of-thrones/
