2010 Primetime Emmys Roundup

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Well, Neil Patrick Harris did not win the Emmy for supporting actor in a comedy but with two already at home, he seemed to be in terrific spirits during the telecast.

Neil also managed one of the funnier lines of the evening when he said: “I’d like to thank the Academy for allowing a gay man to host show two years in a row. Congratulatons Jimmy [Fallon] you’re doing a great job!”

It was a pretty wonderfully gay Emmys starting with that glorious opening musical number where cast members from “Glee” including Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith, Lea Michele and Amber Riley were joined by Jon Hamm, Tina Fey, Joel McHale, Jorge Garcia, Kate Gosselin (nooooo!) and a hilarious Betty White.

The first award went to Eric Stonestreet who plays one-half of the gay couple on ABC’s “Modern Family” followed by a win for openly gay Jane Lynch for role of straight cheer coach Sue Sylvester on “Glee.” Archie Panjabi, who plays lesbian law firm investigator Kalinda Sharma on CBS’s “The Good Wife” won for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series.

Openly gay “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy won the Emmy for outstanding writing in a comedy series and said: “I’d like to dedicate this to all my teachers who taught me to sing and fingerpaint.”

I’m thrilled that Kyra Sedgwick finally, finally, won the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for “The Closer.”

She had lost the Emmy four straight years but finally managed to win despite stellar combination that included Julianna Margulies (“The Good Wife”), Glenn Close (“Damages”), Mariska Hargitay (“Law & Order: SVU”) and first-time nominee Connie Brittan (“Friday Night Lights”).

I love that Kyra asked presenter Tina Fey to hold her Emmy as she gave her speech in which she thanked her “kids who let me fly away when I needed tyo and who now are flyng away themelves.” She also thanked “my one and only love Kev [husband Kevin Bacon]. and to quote him, ‘Let’s all be good to each other.”

In the outstanding drama series actor, there seemed to be utter shock when Michael C. Hall was, once again, inexplicably passed over so the Academy could give Bryan Cranston his third consecutive Emmy for “Breaking Bad.” In another threepeat, “Mad Men” won for outstanding drama series. I’d be happier for the show if its only gay character, played by Bryan Batt, not been written out.

But “Modern Family,” winner of outstanding comedy series, has two very prominent gay characters in Cam and Mitchell who are an equally vital part of the show as any straight characters. I sincerely hope the TV networks will see how rewarding it can be to be more LGBT inclusive.
