The Emmy winners list is a tad shorter this year over past times when Battlestar Galactica ruled the universe. However, there were some big category winners and a few in the areas most always won by genre-related programming. Here are this year’s 2011 Emmy winners.
As we already headlined last night: Jim Parsons, who plays Dr. Sheldon Cooper on “The Big Bang Theory” walked away with the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.
This year’s surprise came in the dynamite thespian package know as Peter Dinklage. He gained the statue for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for HBO’s highly successful and visually stunning “Game of Thrones.”
Outstanding Sound Editing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special went to “The Pillars of the Earth.”
Finally, the last genre-related winner was “Family Guy” for its Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series and Animation.
