Emmy Winners!

Winners indicated in bold. An interesting, unpredictable mix, with some welcome surprises - Kyle Chandler for Friday Night Lights, Melissa McCarthy for Mike & Molly - and some lamentable oversights - missing the last chance to give Steve Carrell at least one Emmy for seven great years of being Michael Scott on The Office. But then, they also gave Emmys to Peter Dinklage & Margo Martindale, so there's more good than bad.
