In a shocking upset, Jeff Daniels won the Emmy for Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role on HBO drama The Newsroom.

Daniels beat out Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Damian Lewis (Homeland) and Kevin Spacey (House of Cards).

Julia Louis-Dreyfus on Best Actress Emmy win: 'It is delicious'

Sunday night didn’t mark the first Emmy win for Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but that doesn’t mean she’s over it. “It means a ton, because I’ve actually lost many more times than I’ve won,” she said, noting that she’s missed out on the prize 10 times. “It is delicious to win.”

And she credits the Best Actress in a Comedy victory to the Veep writers. “It really has to do with the writing. Fundamentally on the page, it was there. It’s there. … First of all, it’s Armando Iannucci’s voice, which is unique. Nobody had ever done anything like this before. He took it and ran with it. And we have the most superlative writers, who I think I forgot to thank when I was up there. They are outrageously talented.”

Louis-Dreyfus said she planned to sleep with her new statue, but the night wasn’t all upbeat for Louis-Dreyfus: A planned In Memoriam tribute is set for her Enough Said co-star James Gandolfini. The actress was somber when asked about the late actor, but she was also in a hurry to get back to her seat. “I want to be seeing the tribute to Jim.”

Emmys 2013: Jim Parsons wins Best Actor for 'The Big Bang Theory'

Jim Parsons has now scored a hat trick. The Big Bang Theory star won his third Best Actor Emmy for the role of Sheldon Cooper. He also took home a trophy for the CBS comedy in 2010 and 2011. “It’s so silly to be emotional,” he said.

Elton John to perform Liberace tribute at Emmys

The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards will be graced by a knight in shining spectacles this year: Sir Elton John is scheduled to perform at the awards show for the first time.

The multiple Grammy winner will pay tribute to Liberace, the famously flamboyant pianist and entertainer who died of HIV/AIDS-related illnesses in 1987. HBO’s recent biopic about the late singer, Behind the Candelabra, is up for 15 Emmy Awards this year. The film stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, both of whom are nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries (and are Emmy presenters to boot).

The Primetime Emmy Awards air Sunday, Sept. 22 on CBS at 8:00 p.m. ET.

No big opening number at this year's Emmys -- and more hints from Neil Patrick Harris

Second-time Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris isn’t just an actor, singer, dancer, director, writer, child stardom survivor, evil genius, amateur puppeteer, and magic enthusiast — he’s also a seasoned awards show producer with three Tony telecasts and the 2009 Emmys already under his belt.

Accordingly, Harris has been actively involved with every aspect of TV’s upcoming big night. “I become very, very particular [about] even an errant comma or a misplaced inflection,” Harris explained to EW during a recent chat. “Not only the things that I say, but the presenters’ dialogue as well.” At least the three-time Emmy winner won’t have to worry about contingency plans this time around; though Harris is up for an award this year (for Special Class Programs), it’s not a prize that will be handed out on air. (In 2009, the host lost Supporting Actor in a Comedy
Series to Jon Cryer, then interviewed his rival from his podium.)

Will the How I Met Your Mother star’s micromanaging help him strike hosting gold again? We won’t know until 65th Emmy Awards air on CBS Sept. 22 — though Harris did give a few more hints about we can expect at this year’s show. Think less Miley, more magic.

Netflix execs keep ratings under wraps but promise 'TV-sized audiences' during investor Q&A -- VIDEO

On the heel of 14 record-breaking Emmy nominations, executives over at Netflix sat down to discuss their current business affairs in an über-hip Google Hangout interview that took place live on YouTube.

Executives touched mostly on economics and stock options, but also mentioned Netflix’s incredible success with original programming. The company now has a solid slate of original shows under its belt, including House of CardsArrested Development, and Orange Is the New Black. “When we look at original content, whether it’s House of Cards or Arrested Development, we’re just in the very early innings of this. We’re figuring out how to promote them, and what the ongoing value is, what we see is if we do it right, then these will turn into some real franchises,” Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said.

Linda Cardellini, 'Mad Men' superfan, talks secrets and her Emmy nod

Mad Men is a series that traffics in secrets, both onscreen (Don Draper’s increasingly less obscured past) and behind the scenes (creator Matt Weiner’s famous reluctance to reveal any information about what’s coming next). But though the show’s sixth season featured plenty of unanticipated shocks, its two biggest both involved one top-secret new character: Linda Cardellini’s Sylvia Rosen, a bored housewife who a) had an affair with Jon Hamm’s Don (gasp!) which led to b) Sally Draper (Kiernan Shipka) discovering her father cheating on his wife (double gasp!!).

It was an undeniably juicy guest role — which is why the Emmy Awards honored Cardellini with her very first nomination this morning. The actress, best known previously for her work on Freaks and Geeks, is understandably over the moon: “It feels amazing!” she gushed to EW today. “When I started the part, I didn’t know what it was I would be doing. And so having it unfold the way it did was amazing. And the idea that she is sort of a catalyst for all these things that happen in Don’s life — it became such a great role. So that happening, and now this on top of all that, it’s really a dream.”

Emmys: Kevin Spacey celebrates 'House of Cards' nods, threatens murder

Was corrupt congressman Frank Underwood pulling strings at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences this morning? It sure seems that way: His pitch-black Netflix series, House of Cards, scored an impressive nine nominations, including nods for Drama Series and Lead Actor in a Drama. Its huge tally pushed Netflix’s total nomination count to 14 — not bad for a “network” best known for hosting old episodes of Saved by the Bell until this past winter.

For series star Kevin Spacey — who plays the devious Underwood — this amount of recognition is nothing short of revolutionary.  “It’s such a big acknowledgement. We are in many ways the new kids on the block, and to have broken through, it has been really satisfying,” he told EW this morning. “The Academy is more modern than anyone suspected.”

More broadly, the actor believes that House of Cards and Netflix’s Emmy breakthrough could indicate a sea change for TV (and America’s financial health) itself.  READ FULL STORY
