September 25, 2012
The 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, sometimes referred to as "Academy Awards of Television" were held on September 23, 2012 (local time) in Los Angeles. Game of Thrones, the medieval fantasy series based on George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire epic fantasy novel series missed out on the main prizes, but it has been a big winner at the Creative Arts ceremony the week before. Homeland and Modern Family on the other hand swept the board in the drama and comedy categories. Congratulations!
