If you are a big fan of either Showtime's "Homeland" or ABC's "Modern Family," last night's Emmy Awards were probably a ball for you. If you're a fan of anything else, it was just another three-hour award show.
Now that all of the winners have been named, you can take a look back and see who cleaned up for television this time around.

Ron Moore is heading from outer space to medieval times. The "Battlestar Galactica" showrunner will next tackle a television version of "A Knight's Tale" that has been picked up by ABC.
Deadline has the news, reporing that "the series is expected to stay close to the premise and the style of the movie -- it is described as a medieval fantasy incorporating modern music and themes that follows the journey of a young man who starts out impersonating a knight of the realm and ends up becoming one." The 2001 feature film starred Heath Ledger as the titular knight, Shannyn Sossamon as his love interest and Paul Bettany as Geoffrey Chaucer.
As fans of Moore will know, he's more than adept at adapting previously successful projects to the small screen. Though it might seem like a strange choice to have him tackle "A Knight's Tale," we'd argue that this is some of the best television news we've heard in a long time.
When someone mentions Freddie Highmore, your mind probably goes to young Peter, sitting on a bench, in "Finding Neverland," or Charlie Bucket in Tim Burton's revisionist "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." Though he's had a number of more adult roles as he's gotten older, nothing comes close to what Highmore is about to take on next.
TV Guide revealed that Highmore will play a younger version of Norman Bates, the psycho at the heart of "Psycho," and the main character of A&E's new television series. The series, which comes from executive producer Carlton Cuse of "Lost," has been making a number of big casting announcements recently.
Winter is coming, and with it the first still from "Game of Thrones" season three.
The image comes courtesy of HBO's Making Game of Thrones blog and shows an actor (with his back facing the camera unfortunately) filming a scene in Northern Ireland. The blog post says they're filming a very important fight between "two main protagonists" who become an "unexpected pairing" and that it is a "character-defining scene, for more than one who is involved, so it has to be done well."
We have a couple of theories about who it could be (Jaime and Brienne? Sandor Clegane and Beric Dondarrion? Arya and The Hound?) but the folks over at HBO aren't spilling anything. Fortunately, that's why we have actors. After the jump you can read a bit more about season three, straight from the lips of Gendry.
It's the final countdown: We only have months left until "Arrested Development" returns to us after being off the air for six years.
The cast and crew are busy filming the fourth season of the cult hit around southern California, but creator Mitch Hurwitz took time off his busy schedule to chat with Vulture about the return of "Arrested Development." The entire interview is very much worth your time, but to make life easier we've broken down Hurwitz's hilarious comments into the most newsworthy bites. Just wait until you see what he has to say about "JarJar Bluth."
If Eddie Murphy has his way about it, we will soon be seeing a "Beverly Hills Cop" TV show.
This isn't the first we've heard about the planned TV show, but it is the first time the series has seemed like it could actually become a reality. Vulture has learned that Murphy has teamed up with "The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan to develop the "Beverly Hills Cop" series pitch, and that the duo have partnered with Sony Pictures Television to adapt the story to the small screen. Murphy would act as executive producer and also play an on-camera role. That team started pitching the "hour-long crime procedural" to broadcast networks yesterday.
"Beverly Hill Cops" is a franchise that's very important to Murphy, so it's no surprise that he's trying to resurrect it in a way that stays faithful to the overall story. Read on to find out some details about the show's planned plot.
With every day of production on the new season of "Arrested Development," the long-awaited continuation of the cult favorite comes more and more into view. Earlier this week, we learned that the original ten episodes may be expanded into 13, since according to star David Cross, "There's too much story. Some characters will have two-parters."
Now there is word from The Huffington Post and an unnamed source within Netflix that the vague release date of 2013 for the new season has between specified a bit. The entire new season of "Arrested Development" will hit Netflix at once during the Spring of 2013.
This is certainly good news for all you never nudes out there, so hopefully you're as excited as we are!
"Game of Thrones" fans, meet your King-Beyond-the-Wall.
After a long and lengthy search process, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have finally cast Irish actor Ciarán Hinds as Mance Rayder. Entertainment Weekly announced the casting, and we couldn't be more thrilled about the news. While we always pictured Mance to be a bit younger, the "Rome" star has the look and the acting prowess to pull off the complicated Night's Watch deserter-turned-Wildling leader.
We are a little over a month away from the return of full-gangster Nucky Thompson. Season three of "Boardwalk Empire" is sure to be a dramatic shift from the second considering all that went down on that rainy beach during the season finale.
New photos from the upcoming season have shown up online (via The Playlist), and they give us a sense of which returning characters will be at the center of this year's story.

Thank you, Jason Bateman, for being our inside look into the set of "Arrested Development." The star of the series has been keeping us up to date on the status of the show, even tweeting pictures of the half-completed sets last week.
Now he has surpassed himself. With the fourth season of "Arrested Development" starting to film yesterday, Bateman posted an image to confirm to fans that everything was going smoothly. "First day. Away we go..." he tweeted.
