The 2012 Emmy Awards

The 2012 Emmy Awards have been and gone, with Modern Family and Homeland being the big winners.

The show itself was fairly straight forward, no real mishaps or disasters. A few jokes didn’t hit, Seth MacFarlane didn’t seem to generate a reaction except for his Stewie impression. It was a fairly safe show, mildly entertaining and in the end rather predictable for the award winners.

Check out the categories, and winners below. As well as my Top 5 best dressed, because well why not?
