Hollywood said good-bye to summer last night with the season’s hottest party, the 60th Annual Emmy Awards Emmy Awards.
Leading nominees 30 Rock (NBC), Mad Men (AMC), HBO’s John Adams (HBO) showed everyone why they were so when they picked up, among other awards, the best comedy, best drama, and best miniseries trophies.
30 Rock stars Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin walked away with Emmys for their work on the hit, yet little-watched show, while Bryan Cranston (AMC’s Breaking Bad) and Glenn Close (FX’s Damages) were named best actor and actress in a drama.
In the supporting categories, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recognized Jeremy Piven (HBO’s Entourage) and Jean Smart (ABC’s Samantha Who?) won for their comedic work, as well as Damages’ Zeljko Ivanek and Dianne Wiest’s (HBO’s In Treatment) drama chops.
Jeff Probst (CBS’ Survivor) was named the winner of the first ever Best Reality Host Emmy. For a complete list of winners, click here.

Finally, for what really matters: the fashion.
Lipstick Jungle’s Brooke Shields did color like nobody’s business in fuchsia Badgley Mischka, Ugly Betty’s Vanessa Williams looked all sorts of beautiful in an asymmetric black-and-white Kevan Hall, Lost’s Evangeline Lilly scored a huge red carpet victory for the show in champagne Elie Saab, The New Adventures of Old Christine’s Julia Louis-Dreyfus had it so she showed it in Narciso Rodriguez, and 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski gave good back in navy Versace.
