65th Primetime Emmy Award winners!

Some shockers abound here, but it mostly went according to plan.

Drama Series: Breaking Bad (need I say more?)
Comedy Series: Modern Family (fourth consecutive win. Can it pull a Frasier next year?)
Miniseries/TV Movie: Behind the Candelabra (well, duh.)
Variety Series: The Colbert Report (finally Daily Show lost, good job for Stephen Colbert)
Reality-Competition: The Voice (well deserved)
Actor - Drama: Jeff Daniels - The Newsroom (surprise, but well deserved)
Actor - Comedy: Jim Parsons - The Big Bang Theory (...and people thought I was foolish betting against Louis C.K.)
Actor - Miniseries: Michael Douglas - Behind the Candelabra (who else?)
Actress - Drama: Claire Danes - Homeland (...and people said the same thing about be betting against Vera Farmiga)
Actress - Comedy: Julia Louis-Dreyfus - Veep (who else?)
Actress - Miniseries: Laura Linney - The Big C: Hereafter (good capper to her run on the show)
Sup. Actor - Drama: Bobby Cannavale - Boardwalk Empire (big shock, apparently the Emmys love Boardwalk Empire more than I ever imagined.)
Sup. Actor - Comedy: Tony Hale - Veep (more Veep love)
Sup. Actor - Miniseries: James Cromwell - American Horror Story: Asylum (well deserved)
Sup. Actress - Drama: Anna Gunn - Breaking Bad (I still think they voted for her just because her last name is 'Gunn')
Sup. Actress - Comedy: Merritt Wever - Nurse Jackie (very pleasant surprise)
Sup. Actress - Miniseries: Ellen Burstyn - Political Animals (biggest surprise of the night, I thought Sarah Paulson was a lock)
Directing - Drama: David Fincher - House of Cards (extremely well deserved)
Directing - Comedy: Gail Mancuso - Modern Family (dang Modern Family...)
Directing - Miniseries: Steven Soderbergh - Behind the Candelabra (well, obviously...)
Writing - Drama: Henry Bromell - Homeland (posthumous win, well deserved)
Writing - Comedy: Tina Fey & Tracey Wigfield - 30 Rock (good consolation prize for final year of 30 Rock)
Writing - Miniseries: Abi Morgan - The Hour (arguably biggest surprise of the night. I mean, seriously...)
