The hit AMC series Breaking Bad took home the most Emmy's of the night with 5: Outstanding Lead Actor in a drama series Bryan Cranston, Outstanding writing for a drama series Moria Walley-Beckett (Ozymandias), Outstanding Supporting Actress in a drama series Anna Gunn, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a drama series Aaron Paul and Outstanding Drama Series.
Modern Family took home three with Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a comedy series Ty Burrell and Outstanding Directing in a comedy series Gail Mancuso (Vegas)
The British import Sherlock also took home three Emmys including Outstanding Lead Actor in a mini-series or movie Benedict Cumberbatch, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a mini-series or movie Martin Freeman and Outstanding Writing for a mini-series or movie Steven Moffat (His Last Vow).
The FX mini-series Fargo took home Outstanding mini-series or movie and Outstanding Directing for a mini-series or movie Colin Bucksey (Buridan's Ass).
The Colbert Report took Outstanding Variety Series, Jim Parsons got Outstanding Lead Actor in a comedy series and Julia Louis-Dreyfus won Outstanding Lead Actress in a comedy series.
There seemed to be some debate whether True Detective should have been in the mini-series or drama series categories… the critically acclaimed HBO series took home one Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a drama series Cary Joji Fukunaga (Who Goes There). Some folks consider this a snubbing of Matthew McConaughey.
