EMMY AWARDS: 'Game of Thrones' conquers, 'Transparent' and Cholodenko also winners

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

'Game of Thrones' slayed the competition at the Primetime Emmy Awards, on September 20, earning 12 statuettes and thus breaking the record for most wins in a single year. Among its honors were the coveted Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Peter Dinklage), Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series (David Benioff and D.B. Weiss), and Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (David Nutter). Filming began in July for the fantasy drama's sixth season in Spain and Northern Ireland.

The 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards honored the best in U.S. prime time television programming from June 1, 2014 until May 31, 2015, as chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

'Transparent,' the Amazon Prime series about a woman's experience as she begins a gender transition, didn't nab the award for Outstanding Comedy Series, given to 'Veep' instead, but it did bestow its lead star Jeffrey Tambor with a much deserved win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, who dedicated his Emmy to the Transgender community. The show's creator, Jill Soloway, scooped up an award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, helming the acclaimed eighth episode of its first season, 'Best New Girl.'

Lisa Cholodenko, co-writer and director of the Oscar-nominated film 'The Kids Are All Right,' took home the prize for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special for the HBO mini-series 'Olive Kitteridge,' itself a big winner on Sunday night with accolades for its cast members Frances McDormand, Richard Jenkins, and Bill Murray. Cholodenko has been in a longtime relationship with Wendy Melvoin, a musician and former member of the The Revolution, as in Prince and The Revolution; they have a son together named Calder.

Jane Lynch, a veteran LGBT actor most known for her work on 'Glee,' garnered the Emmy for Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program for her emcee duties on 'Hollywood Game Nights.' Although straight, Uzo Aduba collected her second of back-to-back Emmys for portraying a Lesbian inmate, Crazy Eyes, on the women's correctional facility-themed 'Orange is the New Black.' Meanwhile, Bradley Whitford topped the list for Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series for his guest-starring role on 'Transparent,' playing a Transgender woman named Marcy.

Elsewhere, and non-LGBT related, Jon Hamm accepted his first Emmy after several unsuccessful tries for his consistently solid leading work on AMC's 'Mad Men,' comedian Amy Schumer walked away with one award for her critically praised sketch comedy show 'Inside Amy Schumer,' and Viola Davis made history in becoming the first African-American to win Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, in 'How to Get Away with Murder,' which features Gay characters.

Although the 2015-16 TV season has just begun, we could see several Gay performers or characters in the running for next year's Emmys, including three out actors starring in 'American Horror Story: Hotel' - Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, and Denis O'Hare. Neil Patrick Harris' variety show, 'Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris,' debuted on September 15, the Dan Savage-produced series 'The Real O'Neals' is set to premiere in the coming weeks, and yet another Ryan Murphy production, 'Scream Queens,' with Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas bowed to television audiences this week. Joe Jonas, older brother of Nick, returns to the series 'Kingdom' as a closeted MMA fighter; the entire Jonas Brothers clan has been outspokenly supportive of LGBT rights. The new FBI drama Quantico includes a Gay character, played by Tate Ellington, and the always unpredictable 'Game of Thrones' has certainly not shied away from Gay or Bisexual characters, or man-on-man action, so there's that.
