The Emmys are making room for a new drama star. Showtime's "Homeland" was the big winner at Sunday night's Primetime Emmy Awards, upsetting four-time Emmy winner "Mad Men" in the category for Outstanding Drama Series.

ABC's "Modern Family" continued its win streak in the category for Outstanding Comedy Series, picking up its third consecutive Emmy. The show's stars Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet also picked up Emmys for their supporting roles. Julia Louis Dreyfus was named Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series for HBO's "Veep" and Jon Cryer won the actor equivalent award for CBS' "Two and a Half Men."
The political drama "Game Change" won the category for Outstanding Miniseries or Movie and Julianne Moore picked up the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress for her portrayal of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in the TV movie.
