Deschanel and Johnson phoned in to Entertainment Weekly Radio’s TV Recap hour to accept their honors. They also teased the Fox comedy’s Sept. 17 season 3 premiere, which finds the new couple vacationing in Mexico, along with who might already be trying to break them up. Listen to the chats below with EW’s Dalton Ross, Jessica Shaw, and Mandi Bierly.

There was no election rigging in the the 6th Annual EWwys, EW.com’s reader-voted awards for the Emmy-snubbed, but we did exercise our veto power and move him into our lead actor category when he submitted as supporting to the Emmys. That’s a decision he explained when he phoned in to Entertainment Weekly Radio’s TV Recap hour to accept his honor on Friday. The Best Supporting actor EWwy, meanwhile, went once again to Fringe‘s John Noble, who’s now a three-time winner. How appreciative is he of the fans’ support, even after the series has ended? He allowed EW’s Dalton Ross, Jessica Shaw, and Mandi Bierly to phone him at 12:20 a.m. in Sydney. (He also teased that he’ll be Stateside again soon to shoot another guest spot on The Good Wife for that show’s 100th episode.) Listen to both chats below. READ FULL STORY
Leave it to BBC America’s Orphan Black to figure out how to clone our sheep trophies. The show took home two today when winners of EW.com’s 6th Annual reader-voted EWwy Awards, which honor the Emmy-snubbed, were announced live on Entertainment Weekly Radio’s TV Recap hour. Orphan Black co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson dialed in to accept the Best Drama honor, while star Tatiana Maslany phoned after she was named Best Actress. (She had 43 percent of the vote in her category, which had this year’s largest margin of victory — 3,331 votes.) Listen to them chat with EW’s Dalton Ross, Jessica Shaw, and Mandi Bierly below.* Because someone was out scouting a location for season 2 (which will premiere in April 2014), we got a bit of bonus scoop.

Community dominated the comedy categories in EW’s 5th annual EWwy Awards, winning Best Comedy with 49 percent of the vote. We recently dropped by the set to hand-deliver the cast’s tiny golden Ewe statuettes so they could 1.) poke fun at the them, and 2.) sincerely praise/thank the show’s fans, who they know are the reason they’ve got a fourth season premiering Oct. 19 on NBC.
Watch Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie, and Danny Pudi accept the Best Comedy EWwy in the first video below. In the second, McHale, Brie, and Pudi celebrate their individual EWwy wins by teasing the new season. READ FULL STORY
The actors on Fringe may have gotten teary at Comic-Con talking about the end of the series, but on set last week, they sang a stronger tune. They’re about halfway through filming their final season, and the end game still seems like a distant future, most said.
But when EW handed Anna Torv a pair of tiny golden Ewes — her awards for winning Best Actress in a Drama and Best Drama in EW’s 5th annual EWwys — that’s when she began to tear up. And who can blame her? 1) The sheep are adorable. And 2) as you’ll hear her say, the statues come from the people who kept the show alive for five years.
Click below to watch Torv, John Noble, and former executive producer Jeff Pinkner accept their bounty. (Note: We made sure Josh Jackson got his as well!)
UPDATE: Fringe executive producer/showrunner J.H. Wyman also shared some kind words! “On behalf of everyone involved in Fringe, I want to take a moment to thank all of our incredible fans who voted and have made Fringe the winner of Entertainment Weekly’s Best Drama Series EWwy Award for the third year in a row,” he tells EW. “We are honored to have had such a dedicated and loyal fanbase supporting this show over the years, and we are working overtime to deliver an unforgettable fifth and final season.”
