Taliban and Al Qaeda big losers at 64th Primetime Emmy Awards: winners in full

by | 24th, September 2012

TO the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, to see Damian Lewis win best actor in a drama series for his role in Homeland, and Dame Maggie Smith win best supporting actress for her role in Downton Abbey. Lewis thanked his wife:  “I adore you darling.”  Claire Danes, who won best actress for her role in Homeland thanks to: “My husband, my love, my life, my baby daddy, this doesn’t mean anything without you.”  Such is the fascination with the War on Terror (what Obama wanted renamed the “Overseas Contingency Operation” and George Dubya Bush We actually wanted called “the struggle against ideological extremists who do not believe in free societies who happen to use terror as a weapon to try to shake the conscience of the free world”) that it features on one front page: the Sun leads with news that British Taliban wants to murder Prince Harry. Other Brits merely want to fight him in a bar or shag him.

Claire Danes did not thank the Taliban nor Al Qaeda for making great TV possible.
