'30 Rock' and 'Mad Men' Snag Best Series at 61st Emmys


Take a look at the winners of this year's Primetime Emmy Awards which has just been wrapped up with the announcement of Best Comedy Series and Best Drama Series winners.

"30 Rock" and "Mad Men" managed to grab the coveted awards at the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. The former was hailed as the Best Comedy Series while the latter was the winner of Best Drama Series. This would be "Mad Men" second time in a row to win the category while for "30 Rock" it's their third year holding the title.

The cast ensemble for both shows took the stage to receive the trophy. "30 Rock" creator Tina Fey thanked NBC for keep airing the show although it is much more expensive than a talk show. Creator of "Mad Men" Matthew Weiner meanwhile said, "We worked very hard to not have it stink the second year. It is an amazing time to work in TV and I know that everything is changing but I'm not afraid of it because I feel like all these different media, it's just more choice and more entertainment and it's better for the viewers in the end, and I'm glad to be a part of it."

Out of the 20 nominations it received, "30 Rock" managed to grab five of them.

Primetime Emmy Awards was held at Los Angeles' Nokia Theater on Sunday, September 20 hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. Partial list of winners is available below while the winners of other categories such as Best Writing, Best Directing and others are available at the official site.
