(Reuters) – Basic cable channel AMC was rewarded at the Primetime Emmy awards for “Breaking Bad” and broadcasters landed top honors, while pioneering streaming service Netflix Inc was shut out of the major categories on Monday.
Premium cable channel network HBO again dominated with 19 awards in total, 15 of them in creative arts categories handed out earlier this month. Its only major acting award on Monday went to Julia Louis-Dreyfus for political comedy “Veep.”
Broadcast network ABC’s “Modern Family” won best comedy series for the fifth consecutive time. AMC, a unit of AMC Networks Inc, took home the best drama prize for the final season of “Breaking Bad,” one of six awards for the network.
The most-honored show, with seven awards, was “Sherlock: His Last Vow”, on nonprofit network PBS.
