Breaking Bad - Ozymandias

Walter White may have had a rough year, but Breaking Bad had a great one. The AMC drama practically swept the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight with five wins, including Best Drama Series. The only series to pick up more statuettes this year was Sherlock: His Last Vow — and that’s only if you count the four Creative Arts Emmys it won earlier this month on top of the three it picked up during the telecast.

On the comedy side, Emmy voters continued to be high on Modern Family, which won Best Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row. Indeed, the most noticeable pattern to emerge in 2014, better or for worse, was Emmy’s preference for repeat winners over new ones. All four victors in the major acting categories had won before. Meanwhile, newbies like Orange Is the New Black and Silicon Valley were shut out. Even True Detective managed just one win during the ceremony, for director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Oh well. At least Fargo went home with Best Miniseries.

Hit the jump for the full list of winners.

Fukunaga directed all eight episodes of the HBO limited series, with six having aired so far. With two weeks left in the very odd and unsettling police drama he directed for creator/writer Nic Pizzolatto, and a few feature developments in the fire (including Stephen King’s It) what’s next for the filmmaker?
