Modern Family, Homeland and Game Change dominated Sunday's 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, each winning four awards, with the Showtime drama ending Mad Men's four-year reign as Best Drama Series.
Homeland also claimed the lead drama trophies for Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, and the drama writing award. It is the first show to win Best Drama series, lead actor and lead actress since Picket Fences in 1993.
Mad Men was gunning for an unprecedented five-peat in Best Drama Series, but ended up going 0-17 this year. It also extended its acting awards drought to a dismal 0-25.

Modern Family became the fifth show to three-peat in Best Comedy Series, following The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Taxi and 30 Rock. Stars Eric Stonestreet and Julie Bowen both won their second Emmys in the comedy supporting races. Stonestreet previously won in 2010 and is the sixth man to win two in the category. Bowen won last year and is the first to repeat since Doris Roberts won three straight nine years ago. The sitcom also won comedy directing.
Game Change nearly swept all the TV movie/miniseries awards, nabbing the top prize, lead actress for Julianne Moore and writing and directing prizes.
In a surprise victory, Two and a Half Men's Jon Cryer won comedy lead actor after switching from the supporting category, which he won in 2009. Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her third Emmy and second in comedy lead actress for Veep.
