Big night in TV last night as the 61st Emmy Awards took place.  Apparently it was a pretty good show hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and there were a lot of repeat wins but a couple of new ones as well.  The full list is below but just wanted to highlight a couple like Michael Emerson winning Best Supporting Actor (Drama) which was well deserved for playing one of the best villains ever, Benjamin Linus, on Lost.  Also props to Cherry Jones for Best Supporting Actress (Drama) for her role as the second best 24 president ever, Allison Taylor.  The rest of the awards were pretty much dominated by Mad Men and 30 Rock yet again.
