If SideReel Awarded the Emmys…

The 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards aired last night on ABC. If you didn’t have a chance to watch, you can check out all of the winners here!

We polled SideReel viewers before the Emmys in regards to who they’d like to see take home the awards. We were curious to learn how the preferences of SideReel viewers would stack up against those of the Emmy voters. Check out the results below (also available on our SideReel Showdown Page) :

Outstanding Drama Series
SideReel Chose: True Blood
Emmy Winner: Mad Men

Outstanding Comedy Series
SideReel Chose: Glee
Emmy Winner: Modern Family

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series
SideReel Chose: Juliana Margulies
Emmy Winner: Kyra Sedwick

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series
SideReel Chose: Michael C. Hall
Emmy Winner: Bryan Cranston

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series
SideReel Chose: Tina Fey
Emmy Winner: Edie Falco

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series
SideReel Chose: Steve Carell
Emmy Winner: Jim Parsons

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series
SideReel Chose: Christina Hendricks
Emmy Winner: Archie Panjabi

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
SideReel Chose: Terry O’Quinn
Emmy Winner: Aaron Paul

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
SideReel Chose: Jane Lynch
Emmy Winner: Jane Lynch

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
SideReel Chose: Neil Patrick Harris
Emmy Winner: Eric Stonestreet

As you can see, the results were pretty striking. SideReel users and Emmy voters chose differently in every single major category with the exception of one – Jane Lynch for Supporting Actress in a Comedy.

Voting was in line with shows that have been popular on SideReel – True Blood, Glee, actors from The Office, Dexter, How I Met Your Mother – are who SideReelers thought should take home the Emmys. These are all series that are/have been in our Top 10 within the last year. As we have noted previously, online viewers often have different tastes than offline viewers. Thus, it makes sense that they’d have different Emmy preferences as well. We’re guessing that most of the Emmy voters are not watching their TV online – yet – but perhaps one day this will change and we will see some very different results here…
