LOS ANGELES, USA – “Orange is the New Black” and “House of Cards” have failed to write a new page of history at the 66th Emmy ceremony, awards for television production United States on Monday.
The two series, broadcast on Netflix, could become the first online series to get the most prestigious award at the Emmys.
The first could ahead “Modern Family” in the best comedy category. As for the second, it was powerless against the real winner of the evening, the “Breaking Bad” series, in the best drama series. The latter has won four other awards, reaching almost to monopolize gambling categories of actors.
If the two sets online could not write a new page of history, Jim Parsons and Bryan Cranston both rewrote the record books Emmys. Parsons, who plays a lovable geek in “The Big Band Theory” series was named best actor in a comedy. This is her fourth statuette, which puts it on a par with Kelsey Grammer and Michael J. Fox.
As for Bryan Cranston, the star of “Breaking Bad,” he removed him as the fourth statuette in his career, this time for Best Actor in a drama series, joining Dennis Franz at the forefront of the ranking of the most awarded actors.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the series Veep, continued to impose its domination in the category Best Actress in a Comedy statuette by removing the third year in a row. It sparked laughter in the room when, going for the trophy, she stopped pretending to kiss Cranston with whom she had already starred in “Seinfeld.” As for Julianna Marguilles, it has established itself in the category of Best Actress in a Drama Series.
The memory of Robin Williams, who died recently, was welcomed by Billy Crystal. The designers of the ceremony then managed the feat of presenting a short montage of television passages of great actor without including an excerpt from “Mork & amp; Mindy, “the series that revealed to the public.
The host of the ceremony, Seth Meyers, set the tone for the evening by mocking conventional networks, including his own employer NBC , for having done outdone by series from pay TV or new productions broadcast via the Internet.
Still, the first two winners of the evening playing in the series with their nests on conventional networks. Ty Burrell of Modern Family (ABC) and Allison Janney Mom (CBS) have both removed the Emmy presented to the best supporting roles in a comedy.
“The Normal Heart,” which tells of the crisis AIDS in the early 1980s, was named best TV movie of the year to the satisfaction of the audience who paid great artisans ovation when they took the stage to pick up the reward. The director Ryan Murphy dedicated the award “to the hundreds of artists who have died of AIDS.”
The seventh art made itself felt in the evening. Two actresses rewarded at the Oscars in the past have received an Emmy Monday: Jessica Lange (Best Actress in a TV movie, series or a miniseries) and Kathy Bates (Best Supporting Actress in a TV movie, mini-series or series). And “Fargo,” inspired by the film of the same name of Joel and Ethan Coen Brothers, won for Best Miniseries.
