Last night on the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS, host Neil Patrick Harris gave the show some pizazz with some humorous bits including a spoof on Neil having EHD – Excessive Hosting Disorder, or the production number in the middle of the show when he danced in a soul train line with Castle’s Nathan Fillion and comedian Sarah Silverman.
However, the rest of the show remained plenty lackluster, but through it all 26 awards were dolled out honoring the best in primetime comedy, drama, television movie and mini-series, and Variety and Reality programming.
The uber-popular Breaking Bad now in its final season, finally won the Outstanding Drama Series category after four losses. Anna Gunn also finally won her first Emmy for the series, in the Supporting Actress Drama Series category. In comedy, Modern Family became the first comedy to win four times in a row since Frasier had a five-peat in the 90′s. Here is a complete list of winners below!
