Mad Men, 30 Rock and Little Dorrit hit jackpot at 61st Primetime Emmy Awards
TV’s top talent took the limelight at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards this weekend and it was comedy series 30 Rock which hit the top spot.
The show was awarded best sitcom series and its male lead Alec Baldwin, won outstanding actor in a comedy series.
Mad Men also proved its worth, taking the outstanding drama series accolade for the second year running at the awards ceremony.
Among the host of acting talent, it was Glen Close who scooped the best actress in a drama series for her part as a ruthless lawyer in Damages. Actor Bryan Cranston took the actor gong for Breaking Bad.
However, British talent was also recognised at the glitzy awards do when Little Dorrit, the Charles Dickens adaptation, claimed seven trophies, including outstanding mini-series and best script and direction.
Accepting the gong, executive producer Anne Pivcevic said: ‘We are thrilled that Little Dorrit has gone down so well this side of the Atlantic.’
But let’s not forget the red carpet style. Heidi Klum stole the show, boldly showing off her burgeoning baby bump in a figure-hugging black Marchesa gown, while Drew Barrymore looked princess perfect in a stunning blush pink Monique Lhuillier dress.
But our style gong for the night must go to Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively who oozed glamour in a red hot Versace slashed-to-the-navel dress.
