I was very happy to see that Maggie Smith won an Emmy for Downton Abbey she is absolutely brilliant in it. It was also great that Jon Cryer won for best lead actor in his role as Alan Harper on Two and a Half Men. As for the others I haven’t seen many of the shows. I want to see Boardwalk Empire, Homeland, and the Hatfields & McCoys. Looks like I definitely have reason to now.

What about you guys? How do you feel about the winners (or losers) of last night’s Primetime Emmy’s?
