On a night a that saw Bob Newhart finally win his first ever Emmy, "Modern Family" once again went home with a win for Outstanding Comedy Series. But it was "Breaking Bad" that stole the show, winning its first Emmy Award at the 65th Annual Primetime Emmys on Sunday, September 22, 2013.
Neil Patrick Harris served as host and was awesome as usual when he was on stage, which didn't seem to be enough. He did manage to sneak in a musical number about halfway through the show. It is probably time to get him hosting the Oscars. Surely his work in the "Harold and Kumar" movies is enough big screen cred to snag that gig.
The night got off to an interesting start when Merritt Wever won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy for her role on "Nurse Jackie" and gave one what had to be one of the shortest speeches in Emmy history. Tony Hale of "Veep" followed her with a win for Supporting Actor in a Comedy.
"Veep" was just getting started. Julia Louis-Dreyfus won Outstanding Actress in a Comedy, her fourth win and second as a lead actress.
Jim Parsons won Outstanding Actor for his role as king nerd Sheldon Cooper on "The Big Bang Theory". However, even bigger was Bob Newhart winning his first ever Emmy award for his guest starring role on the show.
When things turned serious, "Breaking Bad" got rolling. Anna Gunn got things started early, picking up her first ever Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama for her role as Skyler White.
One of the more stunning wins of the night went to Bobby Cannavale, who snagged Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama for his role on HBO's "Boardwalk Empire". Probably a little more expected was Jeff Daniels winning Outstanding Actor in a drama for "Newroom".
"Behind The Candelabra" won Outstanding Miniseries, while actor Michael Douglas won Outstanding Actor in a Miniseries for his lead role in the made for TV movie.
