"Modern Family" and "Homeland" took the Emmy Awards 2012 for best comedy series and best drama series respectively Sunday at the 64th edition of the awards hosted by Jimmy Kimmel at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

Claire Danes and Damian Lewis from "Homeland" took the Emmys for best Lead Actress and Best Lead Actor respectively for a drama series.

"I'm one of those pesky Brits, I apologize," said Lewis. "I don't really believe in judging art, but I thought I'd show up just in case."

"My husband, my love, my life, my baby daddy, this doesn't mean anything without you," Danes said during her acceptance speech.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus from Veep won the Emmy for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy for her role as a caustic U.S. vice president and "Two and a Half Men," Jon Cryer won the award for Lead Actor in a Comedy series.

"Don't panic, people. Something has clearly gone terribly wrong. I'm stunned," said Cryer.
