The winners of the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards are…

Following the announcement of the Creative Arts Emmys earlier this month, the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards were handed out last night during a star-studded ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles as the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences celebrated the very best in primetime programming over the past year.

Despite being nominated in 17 categories, acclaimed drama Mad Men failed to register a single award, with its four year stream as Outstanding Drama Series broken by the Golden Globe-winning Homeland, while the other top honours went to Modern Family (Outstanding Comedy Series), Game Change (Outstanding Miniseries or TV Movie), The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Series) and The Amazing Race (Outstanding Reality-Competition Program).

Homeland continued its success in the acting categories, with Damian Lewis and Clare Danes named as Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress (Drama) respectively), while it also received the award for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. HBO’s Game Change saw Julianne Moore named as Outstanding Lead Actress (Miniseries or Movie) for her role as Sarah Palin, as well as taking home Outstanding Direction (Jay Roach) and Outstanding Writing (Danny Strong), while Modern Family picked up a further four awards (Comedy Directing – Steven Levitan; Supporting Actor – Eric Stonestreet; and Supporting Actress – Julie Bowen) and miniseries Hatfields & McCoys took home acting honours for Kevin Costner (Outstanding Actor – Miniseries or Movie) and Tom Berenger (Supporting Actor).
