Believe it or not, the 65th Emmy Awards actually happened Sunday night, awarding all the shows you don’t watch and the shows you watch obsessively (“Breaking Bad,” I’m thinking ’bout you). 

To describe the show, words like “bipolar,” “boring,” and “frustrating” were being tossed around on the blogs this morning. If you watched, you’d understand why. 

Regardless, the Emmys gained 17 million viewers, the largest audience in a decade, according to the New York Times.

In all honesty, this year’s Emmys sound much more exciting in writing.

“House of Cards” became the first online-only web series nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award, the critically-acclaimed “Breaking Bad” finally won the award for “Best Drama” and Merrit Wever of “Nurse Jackie” delivered an impressively concise eleven second acceptance speech for her “Best Supporting Actress” win.

Below is a list of some of the winners:
