Time Warner Wins Big at the 64th Emmy Awards

23 Sep 2012 - By TW Staff

For the 11th year in a row, HBO won more Emmys – 23 in all – than any other network. And HBO wasn't the only Time Warner division to take home top honors – Turner and Warner Bros. each added six wins to bring Time Warner's grand total to 35 Emmys.

For HBO, Game Change was the night's big winner, taking home four Emmys, including: Outstanding Miniseries or Movie; Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special; Outstanding Lead Actress for Julianne Moore's portrayal of Sarah Palin; and Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special. Julia Louis-Dreyfus won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in VEEP, and Boardwalk Empire won Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series.

One of many special moments of the night was when Jon Cryer won his first Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy for his work as Alan Harper in Warner Bros.' Two and a Half Men.

At the Creative Arts Emmys awarded earlier this month, HBO's Game of Thrones won six awards in categories ranging from Outstanding Costumes for a Series to Outstanding Special Visual Effects and Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series. On this night, Turner won six statues, including Outstanding Short-Form Animated Program for Regular Show and Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media Enhancement to a Television Program or Series for the Team Coco Sync App. Warner Bros. rounded out the night with five wins, including Outstanding Art Direction for a Multi-Camera Series for 2 Broke Girls and Outstanding Stunt Coordination for Southland.
