The 2013 Emmy Award Winners

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences have just announced the winners for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards.

It was long overdue, but AMC's "Breaking Bad" finally scored the Best Drama series gong after several years of acting only honors. The show also took home a best supporting actress Emmy for Skyler White herself Anna Gunn. If there was a surprise it was that the show's Bryan Cranston and "House of Cards" actor Kevin Spacey lost the Best Actor in a Drama Series honor to Jeff Daniels from HBO's "The Newsroom".

Other big winners were Steven Soderbergh's "Behind the Candelabra" which dominated the mini-series/telemovie category, and Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" which dominated the variety series category.

Other winners were along familiar lines - "Modern Family" winning Best Comedy Series for the fourth year in a row, Claire Danes and Julia Louis Dreyfuss taking Best Actress honors in drama and comedy respectively like they did last year. There were also some welcome wins such as Laura Linney for "The Big C," Bobby Cannavale for "Boardwalk Empire," and Abi Morgan for her writing on the UK series "The Hour".

Though nominated, "Game of Thrones," "Downton Abbey," "Mad Men," "Girls" and "Top Of The Lake" were all shut out.
