66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

Nokia Theatre L.A. Live / Los Angeles, CA

Again the Big winners of the Emmys 2014 are ‘Breaking Bad‘ & ‘Modern Family

The 66th Emmy Awards telecast live from the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles instead focused on already-familiar shows and names, heading the list was AMC’s drama “Breaking Bad,” which won its second consecutive Emmy for drama series for its fifth and final season, and “Modern Family,” ABC’s sitcom smash, which tied the record set by “Frasier” with a fifth comedy series trophy. “To be compared with a show like ‘Frasier’ … This is a really mind-blowing experience,” said Steven Levitan, co-creator of “Modern Family” along with Christopher Lloyd, who was a writer-producer on “Frasier.”

This year the Emmys received the highest number of submissions ever in both the drama category with 108 and comedy with 86.

At least one person who claimed to be surprised at the outcome was “Breaking Bad” show runner Vince Gilligan, despite the fact that “Breaking Bad” had one of the most critically acclaimed final seasons in TV history. “I did not think we were going to win tonight,” he said backstage. “But when Aaron won and then when Anna [Gunn] won and Bryan won I thought, ‘Well hell, we might have a real chance here tonight.’ “We were up against some very stiff competition,” he said. “We are so proud to be up there and so honored because you know, so many people could have won this tonight and it would have been justified and deserved. But I’m glad it was us.”
