Emmy Loves '30 Rock,’ ‘Mad Men’ … and HBO

Both shows are repeat big winners; NBC led among the broadcast networks, earning 16 Emmys overall.

(See TheWrap's complete Emmys coverage.)

 

It was another year of deja vu for the Emmys, with HBO again dominating the overall tally with 21 honors overall and critical faves "Mad Men" and "30 Rock" repeating as best comedy and drama.

PBS also cleaned up at the 61st Annual Emmy Awards, thanks to "Little Dorrit," a little-hyped British co-production that snagged a total of seven statuettes — more than any other program this year. HBO, which normally dominates longform, could still celebrate with six awards for "Grey Gardens."

NBC led among the broadcast networks, earning 16 Emmys overall. The Peacock tied HBO for Emmys won on Sunday night, with both networks taking home five statuettes. (Other awards were handed out last Saturday at the Creative Arts Emmys.)

While HBO led the Emmy tally, it did so without winning any major awards Sunday for series such as "Big Love," "Entourage" or "True Blood."

 

Here's how it went during Sunday night's telecast — winners are in bold. Charts are based on all Emmys, including Creative Arts.
