Well, the 2012 Emmys have been and gone for another year, and here are the results! The most surprising of which was Homeland, having beaten out Breaking Bad and Mad Men for the drama categories, with both Claire Danes and Damian Lewis taking home Emmys, and breaking Mad Men‘s Best Drama Series streak.

Modern Family again came out top in the comedy awards with an impressive four gongs, including the Outstanding Comedy Series prize for the third year in a row, along with awards for acting and directing. Other winners also somehow included Two and a Half Men and Dancing with the Stars. Yes, really.

Sunday night’s prestigious ceremony was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, who managed to get quite a few laughs on the night—though Screencrave mused, “not quite as big as the laughs used to hide the soul-numbing shock at Jon Cryer winning and Emmy for Best Comedic actor over Larry David, Louis C.K., or Alec Baldwin, or indeed to cover the spit-takes when Homeland trounced the hell out of Breaking Bad for Best Drama, Best Drama Actor, and Best Drama Actress”. All good observations from the entertainment site.

Now, we could talk about the seemingly pointless categories for reality television and reality television hosts, or who was wearing what (The Huffington Post seems awfully concerned with Christina Hendricks making the same godawful fashion faux pas she at the 2010 Golden Globes), or we could just take a look at the list of all the top award winners below.
