Broadcast and cable television earned some of the top honors at Emmys 2014.
AMC’s hit series ‘Breaking Bad” scored big on Monday night, August 25, winning a total of five awards, including its second consecutive prize for outstanding drama series.
The loved crime drama, about a high school teacher who receives a diagnosis of lung cancer and starts dealing crystal meth with a former student, concluded its final season.
Bryan Cranston, who starred in the series as the teacher, Walter White, won the award for best lead actor in a drama series, which is his fifth Emmy win.
In the acceptance speech, Vince Gilligan, the show’s father, said it was “a wonderful time to be working in television”.
The Emmy Award for best comedy series went to the ABC sitcom ‘Modern Family’. The series tied ‘Frasier’ for a record five consecutive wins. Ty Burrell, who stars as the show’s goofy son-in-law of the family patriarch, won the Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series.
