Breaking Bad won the Outstanding Drama Series award at the Emmys in the US on Sunday night, with Modern Family winning Outstanding Comedy Series.

However, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston did not win the Best Actor in a Drama Series award; it went to Jeff Daniels for his performance in The Newsroom.

Claire Danes was named Best Actress in a Drama Series for her performance in Homeland.

The Michael Douglas-starring Behind the Candelabra, which was shown on HBO in the US, won three awards in the Miniseries or TV Movie categories: Best Actor for Douglas, Best Miniseries or Movie and Best Director for Steven Soderbergh.

In the comedy categories, Jim Parsons was named Best Actor for his work on The Big Bang Theory, while Julia Louis-Dreyfus won Best Actress for Veep.
