Mad Men

To the surprise of very, very few, Mad Men and Modern Family both swept at last night's Emmy awards. Even though Jon Hamm was snubbed once again for Lead Actor in a Drama, Mad Men still picked up its fourth consecutive win for Drama Series, while Modern Family picked up five awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a comedy series for Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen, respectively. 

You can see the complete list of winners over at Entertainment Weekly, which includes The Daily Show with Jon Stewart winning for the ninth year in a row and Kate Winslet taking home an expected trophy for Mildred Pierce

One of the Times' TV critics dubbed the awards show "the land of no surprises," and even with Jane Lynch as the host, the show is getting mixed reviews at best. The ceremony was definitely a little clunky, and normally things do get seriously boring when the same shows and actors take home the same awards every year. However, since Mad Men and Modern Family happen to be two of my favorite shows on the air right now, I'm more than okay with it.
