The Emmy award for Outstanding Drama Series goes to "Breaking Bad."

"Breaking Bad" beat "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones," "House of Cards," "Mad Men," and ""True Detective" in the category. This was the final season of the AMC show and the Emmys honored stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn with Emmys for lead actor in a drama, supporting actor in a drama and supporting actress in a drama, respectively. Moira Walley-Beckett also won for writing for a drama series for the "Breaking Bad" episode, "Ozymandias."

"Thank you so much for this farewell to our show," creator Vince Gilligan said in his acceptance speech. "You have been very kind to us indeed." "Breaking Bad" was widely predicted to win the coveted award, since it's been an Emmys favorite for years.
