The 2011 EWwy Award Winners Announced (EW.com Awards)


They may not have gotten any Emmy love, but here are the performers and series (for both comedy and drama) that YOU say deserve honors

Best Comedy
How I Met Your Mother, 34.41% of the vote

Season 6 of CBS' consistent comedy brought a pregnancy, daddy issues, and guest star Kyle MacLachlan. (And fine, Katy Perry, too). The gang's still got it.

The rest of the nominees got:
Community — 28.04%
Cougar Town — 13.49%
Raising Hope — 12.06%
Louie — 6.31%
Archer — 5.69%


Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy
Heather Morris, Glee, 30.06% of the vote
An unassuming one-liner from Brittany S. Pierce can always save a dragging Glee scene. Also, two words: Britney episode.

The rest of the nominees got:
Busy Philipps, Cougar Town — 19.78%
Alison Brie, Community — 17.21%
Aubrey Plaza, Parks and Recreation — 14.16%
Eden Sher, The Middle — 10.12%
Kaitlin Olson, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia — 8.67%


Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy
Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother, 44.86% of the vote
''Um. Why is Jon Cryer in NPH's spot?" says commenter MKS. ''How can the Emmys ignore Barney's tear-jerking yet touchingly funny journey with his reunion with his father?''

The rest of the nominees got:
Nick Offerman, Parks and Recreation — 19.11%
Danny Pudi, Community — 14.38%
Charlie Day, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia — 8.49%
Bill Hader, Saturday Night Live — 8.39%
Adam Scott, Parks and Recreation — 4.77%


Best Actress in a Comedy
Courteney Cox, Cougar Town, 38.71% of the vote
''As wrong as it was to never show the love during her Friends run, it's even worse now,'' says commenter Katie. ''She does a great job of walking the fine line between crazy but lovable and please-kill-her-off crazy.''

The rest of the nominees got:
Lea Michele, Glee — 27.29%
Mary-Louise Parker, Weeds — 19.29%
Toni Collette, United States of Tara — 14.71%


Best Actor in a Comedy
Joel McHale, Community, 31.52% of the vote
McHale is the king of snark, which made him the perfect choice for prickly, self-obsessed Jeff Winger. But here's the surprise: As Jeff continued to (however reluctantly) embrace his role as leader of the study group and Greendale in season 2, McHale matured into a genuine leading man who can make you laugh, swoon, then laugh again.

The rest of the nominees got:
Zachary Levi, Chuck — 24.01%
James Roday, Psych — 19.05%
Garret Dillahunt, Raising Hope — 13.71%
Dule Hill, Psych — 7.56%
Jason Schwartzman, Bored to Death — 4.15%


Best Drama
Fringe, 36.62% of the vote
''Year after year it has proven itself to be one of the most intelligent and gripping shows on television. What the Emmy panel has against it (not to mention its cast — JOHN NOBLE, PEOPLE!) is beyond me.'' —Muireann

The rest of the nominees got:
Parenthood — 21.64%
The Walking Dead — 19.34%
Justified — 10.75%
Shameless — 7.14%
The Killing — 4.51%



Best Supporting Actress

Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones, 25.22% of the vote
''She gave one of the strongest performances on the recognized Game of Thrones, in what was her first television role,'' says commenter BHM1304, ''and instead they nominate two actresses from the same procedural. Shenanigans.''

The rest of the nominees got:
Sara Ramirez, Grey's Anatomy — 21.28%
Mae Whitman, Parenthood — 20.07%
Regina King, Southland — 12.21%
KaDee Strickland, Private Practice — 12.19%
Maggie Siff, Sons of Anarchy — 9.03%


Best Supporting Actor in a Drama
Matt Czuchry, The Good Wife, 26.91% of the vote
The Emmys recognized his castmates Josh Charles and Alan Cumming in the supporting actor category, but let us not forget the fine line that Czurchy walked in season 2 as Cary worked for the enemy (Childs) but helped out a friend (Kalinda). You were ready to hate him, but he never gave you a reason to. But that wicked smile of his keeps you waiting.

The rest of the nominees got:
Vincent Kartheiser, Mad Men — 20.5%
Michael B. Jordan, Friday Night Lights — 18.11%
Michael Pitt, Boardwalk Empire — 16.7%
Michael Cudlitz, Southland — 9.62%


Best Actress in a Drama
Anna Torv, Fringe, 28.78% of the vote
''What else could she possibly do to show how Emmy-worthy she is?'' wonders commenter tracy bluth. ''Does she need to do a William Shatner impression for two episodes as well? Play three characters who are each pretending to be each other???''

The rest of the nominees got:
Lauren Graham, Parenthood — 23.91%
Katey Sagal, Sons of Anarchy — 17.57%
Lisa Edelstein, House — 17.02%
Emmy Rossum, Shameless — 8.32%
Chloe Sevigny, Big Love — 4.4%


Best Actor in a Drama
Nathan Fillion, Castle, 37.46%
Yes, the perception is that Fillion is just as charming as Richard Castle in real life. But presumably he doesn't frequently find himself in life and death situations with a homicide detective with whom he avoids talking about his feelings until she's been shot. Acting is required. Seriously, Castle is even more disarming.

The rest of the nominees got:
John Noble, Fringe — 27.62%
Sean Bean, Game of Thrones — 15.12%
Charlie Hunnam, Sons of Anarchy — 8.27%
William H. Macy, Shameless — 7.69%
Joel Kinnaman, The Killing — 3.84%

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
