Perhaps  too early to declare the end of  Emmy voting inertia with Bryan Cranston scoring his third outstanding actor award, but there have been a lot of new winners this year, including Top Chef amazingly taking down The Amazing Race for best reality competition -- an award Amazing Race had never lost!

Kyra Sedgwick wins for The Closer.  Fortunately for CBS (and Good Wife fans) Archie Panjabi won for supporting actress so CBS can still claim Emmy love for The Good Wife.

Mad Men wins again for best drama, and Modern Family dethroned 30 Rock for best comedy.

HBO cleaned up with Temple Grandin winning five awards and You Don't Know Jack winning two and The Pacific winning best miniseries.
