Television's most meta night -- where TV stars gather on TV to give each other TV awards -- went down on Sunday evening, and the biggest story of the Emmys wasn't who won, but who didn't win. AMC's "Mad Men," which went into the show with 17 nominations -- the most of any show -- walked away with nothing, while a familiar awards powerhouse and a newcomer dominated the prizes.

The industry showed their love for Showtime's "Homeland," which after only one season walked away with four prizes including Best Drama Series, Best Writing and statues for its two leads, Claire Danes and Damian Lewis. Meanwhile, on the comedy end of the spectrum, "Modern Family" once again ruled the roost. Not even the critical acclaim of "Girls" or outsider favorites like "30 Rock" could stop ABC's crown jewel from landing Best Comedy Series, Supporting honors for Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet and Best Directing. But "Mad Men" wasn't alone in its drought -- "Breaking Bad" also mostly went home empty handed, except for Aaron Paul's second Emmy win for Best Supporting Actor.

Full list of winners below. Who deserved a win and who missed out? Did you like Jimmy Kimmel as the host? Weigh in below.
