The 65th Emmy Awards Winners

TV News | By on Sep 23rd, 2013

The 65th Primetime Emmys were held last night, hosted by NPH and the night was somewhat unpredictable. I knew my favorite series Game of Thrones wasn’t going to be recognized by any wins and that was true. Breaking Bad won the top award for Best Drama, which was the first time it won it and it was much deserved! Jeff Daniels won for The Newsroom, and since I haven’t seen that I can’t say that is justified. Veep won a few awards including Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tony Hale. Jim Parson won again, Modern Family won again (not deserving), 30 Rock won a few awards. The Daily Show finally got beat by The Colbert Report after 10 straight years…don’t feel so bad for Jon Stewart, he’s an executive producer on that show too. I didn’t watch much of the broadcast since I was binge watching Breaking Bad Season 4 but would have been nice to see GOT win something. The list of winners are below.
