‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Modern Family’ Win Big at Emmys

As Breaking Bad prepares for its final few episodes, the series about a high-school chemistry teacher-turned drug kingpin won last night’s Emmy for Best Drama Series, beating out Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, Homeland and House of Cards for the coveted award. For the fourth consecutive year, ABC’s Modern Family took home the trophy for Best Comedy Series. Satirical news show The Colbert Report upset The Daily Show for Best Variety Series, putting an end to Jon Stewart’s hit talk show’s 10-year run. Also, a special shout out to everyone’s favorite Bluth, Tony Hale, who was recently featured on the cover of RELEVANT, for his Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series win. Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul got a surprising shaft, but did take home the unofficial, always coveted prize for the evening’s best photobomb. Also surprising was a Best Actor win for The Newsroom‘s Jeff Daniels, shutting down favorites like Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad). Less surprising but still sad is the fact that Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons continues his bewildering run of taking home the Emmy for Best Actor in a Comedy.
