A big night for "Breaking Bad," as TV celebrated the annual prime-time Emmy Awards. And, once again, it was all about series on cable and Netflix, with a few statuettes going to the big four broadcasters as well. Here's a look back at Monday night's Emmy's. "And the Emmy goes to 'Breaking Bad'." The Emmy's were very good for "Breaking Bad." The show, regarded as one of the best in television history wrapped up its season last September. But it got a final sendoff at the 2014 Emmy's where t won the Outstanding Drama category, as well as five other awards, including an Outstanding Actor Emmy for star Bryan Cranston. "The winner is Bryan Cranston." And he also had one of the night's most memorable moments with his former Seinfield co-star Julia Louis-Dreyfus as she walked to claim her Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. "Yes he was on Seinfeld," she said. Many predicted shows from streaming services and cable networks would dominate the night. "That's like network TV holding an awards show and giving the trophies to cable and Netflix," said host Seth Myers. "That would be crazy. why would they do that?" But that wasn't the case as the networks took home their share of high profile awards. "The Emmy goes to Modern Family." "Modern Family" surprised many by winning the Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy for a record-tying fifth time, "The Big Bang's" Jim Parsons took home his fourth trophy for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy, and Juliana Marguiles won the Outstanding Actress in a Drama award for her role in "The Good Wife." But the most emotional moment may have come when the celebration paused and the show took a moment for Billy Crystal to remember his good friend Robin Williams. "It's very hard to talk about him in the past because he's so present in all of our lives," Crystal said.
