The news: "Modern Family" won big again at tonight's Emmys — for the fifth year in a row — as did "Breaking Bad" and "American Horror Story: Coven." 

"A Normal Heart," HBO's television movie about the HIV/AIDS epidemic, lost out to "Fargo" when it came to its supporting cast, though it did nab the award for outstanding television movie. And "Orange is the New Black," which came in with big hopes, left with just one award: Outstanding guest actress, which went to Uzo Aduba.
