EWwy Awards 2012: Which Supporting Actor is the tougher race?

Jimmy Kimmel, our sun and stars, goes 'Game of Thrones' on 'TV Guide' cover

He is Jimnerys Stormborn of house Targaryen, the first of his name, mother of dragons, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea — and he will take what is his, with fire and blood!

Sorry, what were we talking about? Oh yeah: Jimmy Kimmel is channeling four beloved characters from shows nominated for Best Drama Emmys on the cover of TV Guide this week. To your left, you can see his take on Daenerys the Unburnt, etc. etc., from Game of Thrones. “I look more like a member of Poison than Khaleesi,” the late night funnyman told the magazine. He felt a little more comfortable imitating Bryan Cranston’s Breaking Bad character: “I do feel like Walter White. I kinda look like him. It’s amazing what a little glue and hair from some unidentified animal will do,” he said.

Check out Kimmel’s take on Walt, as well as his version of Downton Abbey‘s Dowager Countess and Mad Men‘s Don Draper, here — and check TV Guide for the mag’s full interview. Kimmel hosts the Primetime Emmys on Sunday, September 23.

Now, bring him his dragons!

Kelsey Grammer: I was snubbed for an Emmy because I'm a Republican

Kelsey Grammer won this year’s Golden Globe for Best Actor for his starring role in Boss, the Starz drama about a ruthless Chicago mayor, so you might be wondering why the Emmys failed to even nominate him. Jay Leno wondered, so he asked Grammer what he thought of the slight when the actor visited The Tonight Show last night. “It may have to do with several things, honestly, but I think it’s possible… I mean, I am a… I’m a declared out of the closet Republican in Hollywood,” said Grammer. He went on to say, “Do I believe it’s possible that some young person, young voting actor — or even older voting member for the Emmys — would sit there and go, ‘Yeah, that’s a great performance, but ooooooooooooh, I just hate everything he stands for?’ [Cue sarcasm.] I don’t believe that’s possible.” Watch below:

Emmys throw Carl Reiner a digital 90th-birthday bash

Not everyone makes it to 90. Even for those who do, not everyone gets the digital treatment from the Emmys, which celebrates Carl Reiner’s 90th birthday today with a host of photo and video moments from the star’s storied career.

Emmys.com worked with the Television Academy Foundation’s Archive of American Television to compile clips and tributes to the comic from over the years, including interviews with Reiner, as well as highlights from last year’s “An Evening with Carl Reiner” event at the Television Academy.

Reiner, an actor, writer, director, and producer who created The Dick Van Dyke Show, has been a legend in Hollywood since the early ’50s, when he was a regular featured performer on Your Show of Shows. Since then, Reiner performed alongside Mel Brooks in their iconic “2000 Year Old Man,” wrote films like Enter Laughing and The Jerk (which he co-wrote with Steve Martin), and directed cult classics like Where’s Poppa? and Oh, God! — and that’s just a glimpse at his accomplishments. Watch video of last year’s Television Academy celebration below: READ FULL STORY
