*The show must go on – and it did Sunday night for Laurence Fishburne, who presented at the 62nd Annual Emmy Awards as his daughter Montana makes headlines over her budding porn career.
The “CSI” star gave out awards in the miniseries category, which was dominated, yet again, by HBO.
“Temple Grandin” won five, including a lead actress award for Claire Danes and supporting honors for Julia Ormand and David Strathairn. “The Pacific,” a 10-part opus about World War II combat in the Pacific theater, won for outstanding miniseries. “You Don’t Know Jack,” about the controversial Dr. Jack Kervorkian, earned Emmys for lead actor Al Pacino and writer Adam Mazer.
AMC’s “Mad Men” repeats as top drama, while newcomer “Modern Family” won for best comedy series.
“Glee” earned the most nominations with 19, but took home just two in the comedy category: best supporting actress for Jane Lynch and best director for Ryan Murphy.
Among the night’s surprises, Bravo’s “Top Chef” beat seven-time champ “The Amazing Race” for best reality show, and Kyra Sedgewick of TNT’s “The Closer” was a first time winner for best actress in a drama after receiving five consecutive nominations.
