Many have predicted that Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra will shine at Sunday’s Emmys and they weren’t wrong. The film won three Emmy awards including best TV movie and a best actor award for Michael Douglas.
In his speech, best actor Michael Douglas thanked fellow nominee and co-star Matt Damon. He said: "I can tell you, you were magnificent and the only reason I am standing here is because of you, so really you deserve half of this.”
It was also a big win for hit comedy Modern Family, which took the best comedy award for the fourth time. Meanwhile, the Best Drama award was given to Breaking Bad. Homeland’s Claire Danes took the best actress award. This is the second time she won the same award for portraying the role of a troubled CIA office in Homeland.
Other top winners include Anna Gunn who was named best supporting actress for her role in Breaking Bad and Julia Louis-Dreyfus who won the best comedy actress award for her role as the US vice-president in Veep, from The Thick Of It.
