'Sherlock' already nabs three, including two acting prizes for Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, while Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates win for their roles on 'American Horror Story'.
More winners were announced at the Primetime Emmy Awards which is currently underway at the Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, California. After reuniting with her former "Seinfeld" co-star Bryan Cranston to present best comedy actor to Jim Parsons, Julia Louis-Dreyfus went back to the stage to accept Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy prize.
On her way to collect the trophy, Cranston pulled her and landed a passionate smooch on her lips. After the long lip-lock, Louis-Dreyfus said on stage, "Yeah, he was on 'Seinfeld'," playing off the joke from earlier that night when she pretended to forget that she ever worked with Cranston. It's her third consecutive Emmy win for her role on "Veep".
"The Amazing Race" nabbed its 10th Outstanding Reality Competition Program award at the Emmys, edging out the likes of "Dancing with the Stars" and "The Voice".
"Sherlock" already bagged three awards for Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special (Steven Moffat), Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie (Martin Freeman).
Cumberbatch won over Freeman, who was also nominated for best actor in miniseries or movie for his role on "Fargo", as well as Billy Bob Thornton who also starred on the FX series. Freeman, meanwhile, beat out his other "Fargo" co-star Colin Hanks as well as "The Normal Heart" actors Alfred Molina, Jim Parsons, Joe Mantello and Matthew Bomer for the supporting actor prize.
Jessica Lange grabbed the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie for "American Horror Story: Coven". She won an Emmy before for the first installment of the Ryan Murphy-created anthology series and another in 2009 for "Grey Gardens".
The FX series also helped Kathy Bates earn a prize for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie, which was presented by Julia Roberts. It's her second Emmy after previously winning through her guest stint on "Two and a Half Men".
