Modern Family was the big winner at Sunday’s 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre, as the hit ABC series swept the five categories it was nominated in: best comedy, best supporting actor (Ty Burrell), best supporting actress (Julie Bowen), best writing and direction.

The night definitely had its share of surprises — Melissa McCarthy captured best actress in a comedy for Mike & Molly while Kyle Chandler won best actor in a drama for Friday Night Lights.

After her second straight nomination, Julianna Margulies finally won Best Actress in a drama for her critically acclaimed starring role in The Good Wife; Kate Winslet won best actress in a miniseries or movie for Mildred Pierce; Martin Scorsese took home best direction in a drama for Boardwalk Empire; and Mad Men captured the award for best drama series.
