You can call the Emmys broadcast a lot of things, but everyone can agree that the annual awards show was surprising, to say the least. While the entertainment end of the evening was a bit questionable – there was a dance break dedicated to Breaking Bad somewhere beyond the halfway point and Carrie Underwood was there for a puzzling reason to sing a Beatles song dedicated to the Kennedy assassination? – some the biggest shockers came in the form of the awards.

There were many a memorable moment, from Kevin Spacey’s brilliant nod to Frank Underwood in the opener, to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler imploring host Neil Patrick Harris to take off his pants so they could “see his business up close” with their 3D glasses. But we’re all here to celebrate and scrutinize those who make up the television industry, so without further ado, let’s find out who took home the golden statuettes, and who went to the after party empty-handed to get sloppy and ogle Jon Hamm instead.
