Two fan favorites took home the top awards at the 65th annual Emmy Awards. "Modern Family" won for Outstanding Comedy Series for the fourth consecutive time, while "Breaking Bad" won for Outstanding Drama award in its final season.
But the night also had some unexpected winners and big upsets. Steven Colbert beat out friend Jon Stewart for the first time in 11 years, taking home the prize for Outstanding Variety Series for "The Colbert Report." Stewart had one every year since 2002.
In another unexpected moment, "Veep's" Tony Hale beat out three “Modern Family” stars to take home the award for Best Supporting Actor. "Nurse Jackie's" Merritt Wever managed to beat two "Modern Family" actresses to win the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
Michael Douglas also nabbed his first Emmy win in five tries for his role as Liberace in "Behind the Candelabra." The actor thanked his estranged wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and got some laughs for quips he made about co-star Matt Damon. "Behind the Candelabra" also won the award for Outstanding Movie/Miniseries.
The Emmys telecast was notably sprinkled with several serious tributes to some of the stars who died this year. Rob Reiner spoke about his "All in the Family" co-star Jean Stapleton and Robin Williams paid tribute to "Mork & Mindy" favorite Jonathan Winters. Elton John also performed a song dedicated to Liberace.
In real life, people chow down on everything from McDonald’s to Chinese food. So why does it feel like everyone on TV has a yen for Subway sandwiches?
Over the past six years or so, Subway has chomped its way into dialogue, plotlines and sets on everything from NBC’s now-defunct “Chuck” and CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0” to ABC’s “Suburgatory.” Its logos, cups and sandwiches have also made their way to ABC’s “The Middle” and NBC’s “Community,” among other boob-tube favorites.
