Emmy awards

There was no doubt about the event’s big winner, the now-completed Breaking Bad, which took home five gongs. Modern Family and Sherlock: His Last Vow took three apiece.

The much-praised True Detective ended the night with one win, for Directing. Among the show’s producers is Anonymous Content, whose Alix Madigan-Yorkin will speak at the Big Screen Symposium next month.

The other win with a NZ connection was in the Reality category where the Phil Keoghan-presented and -produced The Amazing Race took its 13th Emmy.
