'Breaking Bad' Wins Emmy For Oustanding Drama ... Finally

Thank god something that the viewers agree with. Breaking Bad took home the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series after snubbing both Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston in the acting categories. The other Best Drama nominees were: 

“Downton Abbey”
“Game of Thrones”
“House of Cards”
“Mad Men”

And with this news we bid you adieu. It has been an incredibly weird night of television, but thank you for joining us! I'm sure tomorrow will bring a tidal wave of reaction pieces, looking forward to hearing all of your thoughts! Goodnight everybody!

'Modern Family' Wins Again at the Emmys

If people weren't mad about this year's Emmy awards before, now they're actively enraged. Modern Family won, yet again, for Outstanding Comedy Series beating out shows like Louie, Veep, and 30 Rock. Thankfully the voters diversified a bit and didn't give every single award to Modern Family (no acting awards went to the troupe this year).

The one brief moment of respite was the fact that Will Ferrell gave the trophy with three kids on stage with him (couldn't find childcare) while he was rocking a grubby t-shirt and dad-shorts. 

'Behind the Candelabra' Wins 11 Emmy Awards

Behind the Candelabra emerges as one of the biggest winners of the year. After winning eight trophies last weekend at the Creative Arts ceremony, tonight Behind the Candelabra took home an additional three trophies. 

Michael Douglas won for Outstanding Lead Actor, Steven Soderbergh won for direction, and the show won overall for Outstanding Miniseries or Movie. 

Emmys Winners 2013: Michael Douglas Wins

The winner for Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie tonight was Michael Douglas for his role in Behind the Candelabra. Queue a whole lotta gay jokes in his acceptance speech, all directed at co-star Matt Damon. As Douglas put it, he shares the award with Damon. And would Matt rather, "have the bottom or the top?" 

The rest of the nominees are below: 

Matt Damon, “Behind the Candelabra”
Toby Jones, “The Girl”
Benedict Cumberbatch, “Parade’s End”
Al Pacino, “Phil Spector”

Ellen Burstyn Wins Emmy, Gives Best Thank You of the Night

Political Animals star Ellen Burstyn won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries/Movie. She then proceeded to thank the writer "who had the guts to write a woman over 65 who still had a lot of juice."



Watch the Cory Monteith Emmys' Tribute

Cory Monteith's in memoriam tribute was controversial this year. People were angered that Monteith was getting a full segment, while other other more celebrated and well-known actors like Jack Klugman or Larry Hagman were not getting recognized. The Emmys' executive producer defended the choice to honor Monteith. 

Jane Lynch, Monteith's Glee co-star, was the one to deliver the tribute. Whatever your opinion of the controversy, the tribute was very poignant and very filled with message. 

Watch Lynch's tribute to the late Monteith below.

Emmy Awards 2013: Winners, Nominees, and Live Updates

The Emmy Awards honor the year's very best in television. But what if the best shows on television never actually makes it to, er, television? 

As of 2013, Netflix has officially joined the broadcast and cable television ranks in the esteemed nomination pool and put that very question in the forefront of viewers' minds. This year, Netflix received 14 nominations, and House of Cards already took home two trophies at last weekend's Creative Arts Emmys. On Sunday night, we'll find out if Netflix will make Emmys history with wins for Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Kevin Spacey), and Outstanding Drama Series (House Of Cards). 

While 14 nominations for Netflix is impressive, HBO's number blows all the other contenders out of the water. HBO is up for 108 awards, at last year's ceremony HBO won 81 Emmys. 

Netflix's presence in the nominee lineup has also resulted in stiffer competition than usual in the acting categories. With Robin Wright and Kevin Spacey both getting nods for their roles on House of Cards, traditional favorites (like Julianna Margulies from The Good Wife) were edged out of contention. 

Another big race to keep on the radar this year: this is 30 Rock's last chance to bring home any prizes. The series won Best Comedy in 2007, 2008, and 2009, but for the past three years has lost out to Modern Family. The two sit coms are up against one another again this year and are joined in the category by Girls, Veep, Louie, and The Big Bang Theory. 

The most nominated show of the evening is American Horror Story: Asylum (17 nominations) which circumvented some of its stiffest competition by entering as a mini-series rather than a drama. 

As for the year's winners and losers, you'll have to tune in on Sunday evening to find out. The show begins at 8 p.m. and we'll be following along with live blog coverage throughout the evening. See you Sunday!
