65th Emmys

Last night, the biggest stars of television came out for a night of celebration and reward with the 65th Emmy Awards. Neil Patrick Harris served as master of ceremonies that included some great moments with former hosts like Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, and more. But the important part of the show is the winners, and we have the complete list right here.

Fans waiting to see how “Breaking Bad” will end should be happy to know that the series finally won Best Drama Series. On the comedy side of things “Modern Family” went home with Best Comedy Series, and while the show is certainly still hilarious, it should have been “30 Rock” or “Louie” taking home that prize.

Meanwhile, some upsets included Jeff Daniels taking home Lead Actor in a Drama Series for “The Newsroom,” beating out the likes of Jon Hamm in “Mad Men” and Bryan Cranston in “Breaking Bad.” As for actress in a drama, not many were surprised to see Claire Danes take the award home for “Homeland.” The comedy side of acting brought another repeat with Jim Parsons unfortunately winning the award for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, when Louis C.K. should have come out on top. Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home the top prize for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series with her work on “Veep,” beating out favorites like Tina Fey.

Tina Fey & Tracey Wigfield

One thing is for sure though: the women of comedy were honored like crazy last night. For the first time in history, the winners of comedy writing and directing were both women. Writing went to Tina Fey and Tracey Wigfield (who started out as a writing assistant) for the series finale of “30 Rock” while Gail Mancuso won the directing award for an episode of “Modern Family.” Mancuso became the second woman to win that Emmy, following Betty Thomas winning for “Dream On,” and that was 20 years ago.
