It was quite an epic night at the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards for actors who may have surprised others while some shows won even after they went off the air.

The memorable event that took place on Monday night scored well mainly for Breaking Bad. Despite the fact that the show went off the air in 2013, it won for Drama Series, Actor in a Drama Series (Bryan Cranston), Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Aaron Paul), Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Anna Gunn) and Writing for a Drama Series (Moira Walley-Beckett).

One show that some may find to be overlooked this year was Downton Abbey, which gained itself a number of big nominations, but didn't win. Some of the nominations included Drama Series, Actress in a Drama Series (Michelle Dockery), Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Jim Carter) and Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Joanna Froggatt and Maggie Smith).

Some other big moments included The Amazing Race beating out other big reality shows like Project Runway and The Voice. The winner for Comedy Series went to Modern Family, which beat out other big hits like Orange is the New Black and The Big Bang Theory.

One unique category this year was Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie mainly since four actors from The Normal Heart were all nominated- but none of them won. Martin Freeman won for his role in Sherlock: His Last Vow taking the award over Matt Bomer, Joe Mantello, Alfred Molina and Jim Parsons who were all part of The Normal Heart. Colin Hanks was also nominated for Fargo.
