Your Big List of 2012 Emmy Awards Winners

Emmy Awards 2012

So, uh, the Emmys was apparently held earlier tonight. As usual, I was too busy watching football. You know, that game where dudes in pads throw a pigskin around. Yeah, it’s apparently quite entertaining, definitely more so than watching a bunch of pretty rich people parading around in gowns giving awards to one another. Or as they call it in Hollywood, Sunday night.

But in case you were interested in such things, here are your big list of winners from this Sunday’s 2012 Emmy Awards. Did your favorite TV show or TV star win? Do you care? The very awesome Showtime show “Homeland” seemed to have cleaned up in multiple categories, so that’s nice. (By the way, did you know they give out awards for reality TV show hosting, too? You know, those guys who introduce people and then disappear? Yeah, apparently they give awards for that, too. Go figure.)
