Returning favorites and new faces mingled at the 64th Annual Emmy Awards, which were handed out during a Sunday night telecast on ABC hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
On the new side, the freshman series Homeland emerged as a big winner, scoring the win for Best Drama: the first-ever best series Emmy win for Showtime, in any category. It also deprived Mad Men of a record-breaking fifth Emmy in that category. In addition, Homeland’s stars, Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, were named best lead actor and actress in a drama series, respectively, and it also picked up an Emmy for dramatic writing.
On the comedy side, it was mostly about Modern Family, which picked up its third Emmy for Best Comedy. Cast member Eric Stonestreet won his second Emmy for best supporting actor in a comedy, while another Modern Family star, Julie Bowen, won her second in a row for best supporting actress. The show also won for Best Directing, Comedy.
