"Modern Family" took home its third straight Best Comedy award. Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" won its 10th consecutive Emmy, which resulted in Jon Stewart being censored during his acceptance speech for saying the F-word. Julianne Moore (pictured) won for Best Actress in a Mini-Series for her portrayal of Sarah Palin in HBO's "Game Change." Moore stated: "Wow, I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down." And Jon Cryer won Best Actor for "Two and a Half Men," something he admitted was not possible with Charlie Sheen around.

Announcing the 2012 Primetime Emmy Award Winners!

  • BuzzSugar
Homeland and Modern Family were the big winners at this year's Emmys! Jimmy Kimmel hosted the show, opening with a cute monologue that boasted tons of stars like Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling, and Lena Dunham (just to name a few). As the show went on, we were treated to Josh Groban covering One Direction, Breaking Bad getting the old-timey treatment, and Aziz Ansari showing off an impressive British accent. As for the winners, Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet, and Aaron Paul all added their second trophies to their cases, while Damian Lewis was among the first-time winners. One of the biggest shocks of the night was that Mad Men was completely shut out for the first time ever, and Bryan Cranston lost out in the outstanding lead actor in a drama series category for the first time ever.

Fueled by its original series Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire, with a little love thrown at the Clive Owen-Nicole Kidman movie Hemingway & Gellhorn to boot, the pay cabler walked away from the evening with 17 total wins, including six for Thrones alone.
