“Modern Family,” Louis C.K., Claire Danes, Homeland and “Game Change” were among the honorees at the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

Tonight’s the night for the greatest celebration for the US’ Television! American Horror Story, submitted as a miniseries, tied Mad Men with the most nominations this year: 17.

Showtime’s freshman drama Homeland finally unseated Mad Men in the best drama series during the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday on ABC. Actors Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, along with drama’s writers, confirmed pundit predictions by winning the gold for starring in Showtime’s year-old thriller that (conveniently!) returns for its second season next Sunday. But the night’s biggest surprise occurred when the domestic terrorist drama triumphed over AMC’s perennial winner Mad Men as well as last year’s period favorite, Downton Abbey, in the series category.

Modern Family triumphed in the comedy categories yet again, including repeat wins for stars Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet. “We feel so lucky to have jobs that we love with people we love,” said Co-Creator Steve Levitan, who also won a statue for directing.

Julianne Moore took the gold for playing Sarah Palin in the HBO movie Game Change. “I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down!” she said on stage. Kevin Costner won his first Emmy for starring in History’s Hatfields & McCoys, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus returned to TV with Veep this season on HBO and promptly won her third gold statue (previous wins occurred on The New Adventures of Old Christine and Seinfeld). Jon Cryer also grabbed another for co-starring on CBS’ Two and a Half Men – a prize he clearly did not expect to receive.

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart won its 10th consecutive Emmy for outstanding reality series. “We were told we get a free sandwich after 10,” he joked on stage. Longtime TV host Tom Bergeron finally scored for emceeing Dancing with the Stars, and The Amazing Race won its 1,345th Emmy for best reality show.

ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel served up some of the night’s biggest yuks as host. His opening monologue included a few political potshots (“Being Republican in Hollywood is like being a Chick-fil-A sandwich on the snack table at Glee”) and a prophetic quip about Mad Men’s Jon Hamm (“I, for one, am shocked you did not win tonight.”). Other gut-busting moments included Melissa McCarthy lusting for the nominees in the male comedy actor category, a video clip of the Modern Family cast that depicted Lily – aka Aubry Anderson-Emmons — as the set’s biggest diva, and Kimmel asking viewers to tweet that 30 Rock’s Tracy Morgan had passed out stage.

Later, Ron Howard took the stage to pay tribute to his TV dad, the late Andy Griffith, and the many actors and execs who passed over the last year. (Farewell, Davy Jones, Richard Dawson, Sherman Hemsley, Phyllis Diller, Michael Clarke Duncan, Chad Everett, Don Cornelius, Andy Rooney, Ben Gazzara, Kathryn Joosten, Harry Morgan, and Dick Clark, among others).
