64th Primetime Emmy Awards

‘Modern Family,’ ‘Homeland’ dominate Emmys

Oh, Emmy, Emmy, Emmy. What are we going to do with you? For every lovely gift you give — a “Homeland” sweep in the top drama categories, a best comedy actress statue to Julia Louis-Dreyfus for “Veep,” lots of love for “Game Change” — you kick us in the knees a few times.

Jon Cryer as best comedy actor? Julie Bowen and Eric Stone­street once again for “Modern Family,” which predictably took a third statue for best comedy? A ninth award as best reality show for “The Amazing Race”? Kevin Costner over Benedict Cumberbatch as best movie-miniseries actor? Really? Bah.
