2013 Emmys: Big Upsets All Around

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

 

The 2013 Emmys were a night of upsets. Lots of people pegged to take home trophies went home empty-handed. It was a great night for the hit AMC drama “Breaking Bad.” The show took home the award for Best Drama which in the past years has gone to “Boardwalk Empire.” “Breaking Bad” also scored an upset in the Best Supporting Actress In A Drama category. Anna Gunn was shocked when she won the award because for the past three years, legendary British actress Maggie Smith has walked away with the award for her role on the hit PBS show, “Downton Abbey.”

While “Breaking Bad” surprised everyone with two wins, they also surprised everyone with three major losses in the acting categories. Star of the show, Bryan Cranston, was the favorite to win Best Actor In A Drama, but was bested by Jeff Daniels for his portrayal of a burnt out news anchor on “The Newsroom.” Also, Aaron Paul and his co-star Jonathan Banks were thought to be shoe-ins for the award since “Breaking Bad” is one week away from its series finale. However, Bobby Cannavale of “Boardwalk Empire” won the gold.

While there were upsets, some awards went to the people we all thought they would go to. Despite all of Black Twitter and Diahann Carroll pulling for Kerry Washington to win Best Actress In A Drama, it was a repeat win for Claire Danes for her role on the Showtime hit “Homeland.” “Modern Family” made it a four-peat by winning Best Comedy Series for the fourth time in a row.
