Those who aren't already fans of Showtime's "Homeland" (returning on September 30) just might be convinced to tune in after the Emmys.
The series picked up the Emmy for drama writing, edging out episodes from critical favorites "Downton Abbey" and "Mad Men," and stars Damian Lewis and Claire Danes also picked up the outstanding lead actor and actress in a drama Emmys, respectively.
Danes gave a shout-out to the writers as well as her co-stars - “Mandy Patkinkin - holla!” being a memorable line - while Lewis was a charmer.
"I’m one of those pesky Brits," Lewis began. "I don’t believe in judging art … but I thought I’d show up just in case. Turned out alright."
If you're not already into "Homeland," did the Emmy wins make you want to tune in (or at least DVR it)?
The tears were visible as "Breaking Bad's" Aaron Paul took the stage to claim the Emmy award for outstanding supporting actor in a drama.
"Oh my God," he started, trying to compose himself. "I truly didn’t even attempt to prepare a speech - I can’t believe I’m standing on this stage."
After Louis C.K. picked up an Emmy for outstanding writing for the "Louie" episode "Pregnant," he was up again for Emmys in the outstanding directing of a comedy series category as well as the outstanding lead actor in a comedy series category.
Unfortunately for C.K.'s fans, he lost out on both - the comedy directing honor was handed to "Modern Family's" Steve Levitan, bringing the ABC show's tally to three awards thus far, thanks to Eric Stonestreet's Emmy and Julie Bowen's supporting actress in a comedy win).
The outstanding lead actor in a comedy Emmy, meanwhile, went to "Two and a Half Men's" Jon Cryer, who was visibly stunned to have beaten "House of Lies' " Don Cheadle, "30 Rock's" Alec Baldwin, "Curb Your Enthusiasm's" Larry David, "The Big Bang Theory's" Jim Parsons and "Louie's" Louis C.K.
Jimmy Kimmel said he had plans to throw in some genuinely weird stuff, and the opening monologue definitely bordered on strange.
Kimmel opened the 64th Primetime Emmys with a skit that involved him crying about a bad botox job in the women's bathroom as actresses like Mindy Kaling, Christina Hendricks, Zooey Deschanel, Kathy Bates and Lena Dunham - in her birthday suit, eating birthday cake - punched him back into shape. We didn't quite get it, but we did laugh a few times.
With "30 Rock" headed into its final season, Emmys nominee Tina Fey has a new goal: Make the fans weep.
Since the show's already covered plenty of zany plots, as Fey told E!'s Ryan Seacrest on the Emmys red carpet Sunday, she just wants to make sure the last season is "satisfying to people who actually care about the characters."
"2 Broke Girls" actress Kat Dennings was "glam yet understated" in her strapless J. Mendel gown at the Emmys on Sunday, but she also had to watch her posture.
The neckline showed off Dennings' curves for sure, but that also made the 26-year-old a little nervous about suffering a wardrobe malfunction.
