Emmy Awards 2013 Winners, Losers And Surprises

(Newser) – After giving tonight's Emmy Awards host Neil Patrick Harris some really excellent award show advice, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler took the stage to present the first award: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series went to Nurse Jackie's Merritt Wever, who gave perhaps the best acceptance speech ever (watch it here). More awards and highlights:

  • Writing, Comedy Series: Tina Fey and Tracey Wigfield, 30 Rock
  • Supporting Actor, Comedy Series: Tony Hale, Veep
  • Next up was Robin Williams, offering a tribute to Jonathan Winters, who died earlier this year.
  • Lead Actress, Comedy Series: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep (who accepted her award as Tony Hale stood behind her, holding her purse)
  • Awards for Guest Actor and Actress in a Comedy Series had already been given out, but we had to hear about them anyway: Melissa Leo and Bob Newhart won.
  • Directing, Comedy Series: Gail Mancuso, Modern Family

  • Lead Actor, Comedy Series: Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory
  • Rob Reiner's turn to offer a tribute, this one to Jean Stapleton, who played his mother-in-law on All in the Family
  • And now, in case you're feeling nostalgic for the Grammys, a performance by Elton John. It's his song, "Home Again," done as a tribute to Liberace.
  • Lead Actress, Miniseries or Movie: Laura Linney, The Big C: Hereafter
  • Finally, NPH does a little bit of singing and dancing, in a skit starring his How I Met Your Mother co-stars ... and Arsenio Hall. The joke? NPH's "Excessive Hosting Disorder."
  • Writing, Drama Series: Henry Bromell, Homeland
  • Supporting Actress, Drama Series: Anna Gunn, Breaking Bad
  • Another tribute, this time Jane Lynch remembering Cory Monteith.
  • And then a real musical number from NPH, who uses the opportunity to remind us the show is only halfway over. (The song is called "The Number in the Middle of the Show.")
  • Outstanding Reality Competition Program: The Voice
  • Supporting Actor, Drama Series: Bobby Cannavale, Boardwalk Empire
  • Lead Actor, Drama Series: Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom
  • Still wishing this was the Grammys? Good news, it's time for a Carrie Underwood performance.
  • Lead Actress, Drama Series: Claire Danes, Homeland
  • Awards for Guest Actor and Actress in a Drama Series had also already been given out, but since you almost certainly wanted to know: Dan Bucatinsky and Carrie Preston won.
  • Directing, Drama Series: David Fincher, House of Cards
  • Writing, Variety Series: The Colbert Report
  • Directing, Variety Series: Saturday Night Live
  • Another tribute: Michael J. Fox remembering Gary David Goldberg.
  • For those of you nostalgic not for the Grammys but for the Tonys, the Outstanding Choreography award gets its own behind-the-scenes bit and epic song-and-dance medley. The winner: Derek Hough, Dancing With the Stars.
  • Outstanding Variety Series: The Colbert Report dethrones The Daily Show
  • Edie Falco delivers a tribute to James Gandolfini.
  • "This just in, no one in America is winning their Emmys pool." NPH acknowledges the night's many surprises.
  • Writing, Miniseries or Movie: Abi Morgan, The Hour
  • Supporting Actor, Miniseries or Movie: James Cromwell, American Horror Story: Asylum
  • And now, the actual In Memoriam segment.
  • Directing, Miniseries or Movie: Steven Soderbergh, Behind the Candelabra
