The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards is underway with Man Men leading the way to win its fifth consecutive title for best drama series.

The beloved 1960's advertising show "Mad Men" is a strong contender as the AMC production is looking to take their fifth consecutive win for best drama series. The show holds 17 Emmy nominations, which is just above the 16 held by their top competitor, "Downton Abbey." The PBS period drama set in an aristocratic English house has given the broadcast company its best years at the award show.

Todd Gold, executive editor of Xfinity TV, told Reuters, "What makes this year's Emmys filled with such anticipation is that there are no easy predictions and that makes the show exciting." He added, "There was a period in the 1990s when the Emmys seemed so predictable. This is a year that really reflects the strength and depth of TV across the board."

Other critically acclaimed series such as the dark drug drama "Breaking Bad" and the 1930s-era gangster show "Boardwalk Empire," have put up quite a fight. Bryan Cranston is favored to win a fourth Emmy as best actor in a dramatic series for his role in the final season of AMC's "Breaking Bad."

Watch the results as the award show airs on ABC today at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
