Emmys: And the winner is…

Not that one really cares that much, unless you’re a broadcaster just waiting to slap Emmy Award-winner into your promos, but here are the winners from today’s Primetime Emmy Awards.

Jermaine Clement lost out to 30 Rock lead Alex Baldwin in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy series category. Nobody was allowed to be Best, only Outstanding, which seems strangely PC for an awards ceremony in a nation that practically invented self-promotion.

For the full list of winners of the Emmy Creative Arts Awards, which were held last week, go here.

And if you just can’t get enough of all things Emmy, the Daytime Awards winners are at this place … the Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards (one of a mere 19 regional Emmy awards programmes) winners are here … the Emmy Sports Awards (yes, really, but enough already – how many times can you pat yourself on the back?)

Winners at today’s Primetime Emmy Awards bash at the NOKIA Theatre in LA, are …
