Of all the Emmy interviews I did yesterday, my red carpet Q&A with True Blood’s Stephen Moyer may be my favorite. This was my first time interviewing him one-on-one, so I think I was expecting someone more along the lines of, well, Bill Compton — that is brooding, dark, and relatively humorless. (I couldn’t really get a read on him during that group interview at Comic-Con). Well, Moyer is none of those things, as you’re about to see. I was particularly impressed with his response to my Eric-Sookie question as well as his take on why the show’s love triangles don’t suck. Watch the video after the jump!

another interview of Stephen Moyer from TV Guide
Monday, September 21, 2009
True Blood star Stephen Moyer has admitted that the cast weren’t surprised when they failed to receive any Emmy nominations this year.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly at last night’s Emmy ceremony, Moyer said:
“Not many shows get nominated in the first season. I would hope that after the success of the second season, it would at least be up there next year in the running. If nothing else, but for [creator Alan Ball's] work.
“I don’t think we were that surprised. Vampire stuff as a genre hasn’t traditionally been a big Emmy choice.”
Stephen also shed some light on how he feels about his girlfriend Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) cosying up to vampire boss Eric.
"True Blood" wasn't up for any awards at Sunday night's Primetime Emmy telecast, but it earned some accolades during the broadcast anyway.
The HBO series won something called the "Breakthrough Performance of the Year" that was announced near the end of Sunday's show, beating out Kris Allen's crowning moment on "American Idol" and Chuck kissing Blair on "Gossip Girl."
So what, exactly, is the Breakthrough Performance of the Year? It doesn't really have anything to do with the Emmys, for starters. It's a fan poll sponsored by TV.com (owned by CBS, which aired the awards this year) and Vaseline, which is hyping, no kidding, a "breakthrough in body lotion" and designed to recognize things that cut through the TV clutter and grabbed people's attention over the past season.
