Incredibly there were no wins for "Game of Thrones" or enough for "Orange is the new Black".

out gracefully and jokingly saying said its goodbyes but not before taking three or four more Emmys. Brian Cranston
backstage banter was funny then very thankful for his fullfiling life as an actor. The "Breaking Bad
" cast certainly was not going anywhere without its due.
We predict that next year HBO's ,"Game of Thrones" will sweep the Emmys with "Breaking Bad" out of the race.
Outstanding Directing for Comedy Series
Gail Mancuso- Modern Family acceptance speech was a dialogue with Handsome Mathew McConaughey,(we can't blame her!) "Whew. Wow. Thank you so much to the television Academy. I really, really appreciate it. And congratulations to all my fellow nominees. They are it was an amazing, healthy category this year. I feel like I'm going to lose it. I feel like I want to look at my cast, and I love them so much. And if you don't mind, Matthew McConaughey, I'm just going to make contact with you right now. Whew. That's much better. Thank you. So, Matthew, I'm going to talk about how great my producers are over there. Jeff Morton, Steve Levitan, Chris Lloyd. I can't look at them because I'll cry. They produce a wonderful show, and I wish it was written by if the cameraman could get out of my way a little bit, that would be great. Thank you. I'm just trying to direct this. Right there, baby. Right there. Thank you for staying with me.
Sarah Silverman won for Outstanding Writing (we think she was stoned...and not sharing),
"This didn't even occur to me. Um, thank you to my Jews at CAA, Larry, Moe, Curly, and Nick Usiphoro. Heidi Erzod produced it, and Liam Lynch directed it. We've got the old team back together: HBO, Michael Lombardo, Nina Rosenstein, and Funny Or Die, Betsy and Ana and "Amy's V," my friends and my manager and my partner, and thank you for being such a huge part of my life. Flanny, Mark Flanagan at Largo, thank you for making Largo my home and for introducing me to my love, Mr. Fancy Pants Sheen. And we are all just made of molecules, and we are hurling through space right now. Thank you."
Supporting Actress Kathy Bates came backstage and remarked on her winning for her role in American Horror Story Coven,"Okay. Well, I was sure I wasn't going to win. I'm serious, because the first place I went when I got here was the green room and there were guys in there with the little silver suitcase and they had it open. It was like they were going through the winners and losers. So they caught my eye when I walked in and they both kind of tilted their heads in that sort of social worker I'm sorry way. Then I came in tonight and I was way over there and I thought, yeah, that's right, I'm not going to win.
Outstanding Reality Series Competition Program
"The Amazing Race", Bertram Van Munster accepted for the cast," I can assure you we didn't expect this at all, really. So I want to thank the Academy, CBS, Les Moonves, Nina Tassler, Chris Castello over there, and all of the hundreds and hundreds of people that worked so hard on this show around the world. The world is not a bad place. Actually, you can go safely to a lot of places, contrary to what they make you believe. So thank you all so very, very much."

7:00 p.m. We asked gorgeous Jessica Lange who kicked ass in American Horror Story what her beauty secret was and if she was feeling like he ws having an out of body experience. She replied,"I have none," (beauty secrets) and not so much feeling the out of body. Classic answer from a classy actress. She also described a favorite “fan” moment when she was walking down a street in New Orleans and passed a group of young men sitting on a stoop and one of them gasped out: “Shitballs, she's the Supreme!” — referring to Lange's character Fiona Goode
JESSICA LANGE,"I am profoundly surprised at this but very grateful. Thank you to the Academy and a special thanks to everybody who is part of my life on this show, starting with, as Kathy said, one of the greatest crews that work tirelessly, to our amazing set of directors, our incredible writers, and a cast that is just a dream come true beginning to end; and, of course, to Brad and to my darling Ryan who makes this all possible. I don't know what to say. I truly am so surprised. So thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much."

And sorry for that, for some reason. And I love my wife and I love my children, and thank you for all your patience with me. Thank you."
7:42 pm Kathy Bates wins.... "Okay. Well, I was sure I wasn't going to win. I'm serious, because the first place I went when I got here was the green room and there were guys in there with the little silver suitcase and they had it open. It was like they were going through the winners and losers. So they caught my eye when I walked in and they both kind of tilted their heads in that sort of social worker I'm sorry way. Then I came in tonight and I was way over there and I thought, yeah, that's right, I'm not going to win. "

9:00 Breaking Bad were the final winners to come backstage looking like Clark Gable, Cranston was asked about the kiss with Dryfuss, he replied,"the question is why or why not?"
(Brian Cranston kissed Julia Louis Dreyfus on her way to the stage, nearly stealing the show. Both were asked about it backstage.)
7:47 Brian Cranston wins and gives a winning speech," Oh, wow. Even I thought about voting for Matthew (McConaughey) My friend. I don't know why I have been blessed with an abundance of good fortune in my life. I was a kid who always looked for the shortcut, a schemer. My own family nicknamed me Sneaky Pete. My own family. So I did happen to stumble upon finding a passion that created a seed and bloomed into something so wonderful for me. I love to act. It is a passion of mine, and I will do it until my last breath. I can only say that I have gratitude for everything that has happened. I have gratitude for the Academy, for this lovely honor. To the love of my family, I love you guys. To gratitude for AMC and Sony. And especially Vince Gilligan to make this possible for me to have this role of a lifetime Gratitude for our writers, our directors, the wonderful crew that we have in New Mexico and this intimate cast that we created. And my dear friend, Aaron Paul, I love you so much. You were with me all the way and I appreciate that and helping each other. To Anna Gunn, my television wife extraordinaire, I love you. And especially those scenes in bed.
Finally, I want to just say that I'd like to dedicate this award to all the Sneaky Petes of the world who thought that maybe settling for mediocrity was a good idea because it was safe. Don't do it. Take a chance. Take a risk. Find that passion. Rekindle it. Fall in love all over again. It's really worth it. God bless you. Thank you very much."
Vince Gilligan also thanked the fans for all their support,"Wow. Holy cow. Fastest Emmys ever. This thing flew. Thank you so much for this wonderful farewell to our show. You have been very kind to us indeed. And congratulations to all the other nominees who we are honored to stand amongst. This is indeed a wonderful time to be working in television. I think you all know that. We're lucky. We're lucky all to be working now. And I want to thank AMC and Sony, and I want to thank the best damn crew ever in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I want to thank our wonderful producers and the best cast, the best writers and directors. Colin Bucksey, who tonight, Adam Bernstein over there too. Congratulations to you guys. And Michelle MacLaren, all our other directors. And, of course, Mr. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, who couldn't be here tonight, RJ Mitte, Betsy Brandt. Thank you very much."

I am so I know I can speak for everyone in this room. We are so happy you found this gift inside you guys and decided to share it with us. So thank you. Thank you so much. My God, "Breaking Bad," it has changed my life. And I am standing up here because of one man, and that is Vince Gilligan. Thank you so much, Vince. Thank you for believing in me, trusting in me to play this guy. I miss him, you know. I love him, the best cast and crew I've ever worked with and for. Bryan, there's not a there's not a single day that goes by that I do not miss running to work to be able to work opposite of you, my friend. I've learned so much on screen and off. Thank you.
