2014 Primetime Emmy Awards - Complete Winners List

by Leroy Douresseaux

AMC's much-loved crime drama, “Breaking Bad” (which ended last year) won five awards at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, including for best drama series and lead actor.  “Modern Family” won its fifth consecutive award for best comedy series, one of three awards its won.  Other multiple winners included “Fargo,” Sherlock: His Last Vow, and “American Horror Story: Coven.”

To me, the entire ceremony seemed stuck in a loop that began three or four years ago.  Television is supposed to be in a new golden age.  However, all the buzzed-about shows like Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and Orange is the New Black lose to the same shows and performers who have been winning again and again for what seems like ages.  And “The Walking Dead” doesn't even get nominations in the major categories.  Oh, well...

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards took place on Monday, August 25, 2014.  The ceremony aired on NBC and was hosted by Seth Meyers.
