    There might be errors…
    Breaking Bad: Cranston ties Franz’s record for Lead Actor. If you combined Comedy + Drama, technically Carroll O’Connor has the record with 5.

    Paul breaks the Sup Actor record. 

    The two of them together break the record for most Lead+Sup Drama Actor wins; outside of Drama, All in the Family got 6 while Frasier got 8.

    Modern Family: Ties Frasier for most Series wins.
    Ties Mash/NYPD Blue for most Directing wins.
    For Episodic wins, it’s tied with Hill St Blues, and 1 behind Sopranos/NYPD Blue/Mary/Frasier.

    BB and MF both are tied for 3rd-most actors with multiple wins, after the indescribably iconic Mary (with 6!) and All in the Family with 4. The others: Murphy Brown, Everybody Loves Raymond, Cheers, Taxi, Frasier. So…I guess that’s another record for BB, as the rest are comedies.

    6+ performing Emmys:
    Cloris Leachman: Comedy Guestx2, Drama Guest, Comedy Supx2, Longform Lead
    Variety, Supporting Variety=6-8
    Ed Asner: Drama Leadx2, Comedy Supx3, Longform Lead, Longform Sup=7

    Art Carney: Longform Sup, more-or-less Comedy Supx5

    Tyne Daly: Drama Leadx4, Drama Supx2

    Mary Tyler Moore: Comedy Leadx5, Longform Sup
    Allison Janney: Drama Leadx2, Drama Supx2, Drama Guest, Comedy Sup=6

    Shows that won 5 major Emmys in a year, plus longforms with 6 (I compiled this awhile ago; I don’t remember why I had the bar higher for the latter.):
    Breaking Bad 5 (14)
    Modern Family 5 (11)

    Angels in America 7 (04)*** The immense power of Meryl Streep giving the only sweep. She’s also in one of the below dominating programs.
    West Wing 5 (00)

    Frasier 5 (95)

    Taxi 5 (81)

    Hill 6 (81)**
    Lou 5 (80)

    All in the Family 6 (78)**

    Holocaust 6 (78)**

    Roots 6 (77)**

    Mary 5 (76)

    Waltons 5 (73)
    All in the Family 6 (72)**

    Caesar’s Hour 5 (56)

    Dick 5 (64)
    JLD is one away from getting to Candice/Mary’s level in her category, plus becoming the 7th actor with 6 Emmys. 

    Longform actressing (lead+sup) wins: Mirren 4; Judy Davis/Laura Linney/Patty Duke/Gena Rowlands/Jessica Lange 3; congrats to TV actress Lange for being so close to tying the record.

    AHS may be tied with Angels in America and Roots for most Longform acting wins (4).

    Oh, and Jim Parsons ties some better actors for most wins in his category. 

    More?

    5 of the 12 acting winners tonight also won at June’s Critics Choice Awards (Jessica Lange, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Allison Janney, Jim Parsons, and Aaron Paul).

    Now that the reactions thread is closed, I guess I should put this here:

    Since many are talking about repeat winners, I feel that I should mention that, 2 years ago, I noted that 17 of the 72 (23.6%) winners on the main telecast were in possession of 1 Emmy, while this year it is 20 out of 86 (23.3%). Thank goodness for last year’s aberration! Jon Stewart won his 20th, which ties him with James L. Brooks for third most among all individuals, behind Edward J. Greene and Sheila Nevins (she’s up to 27 now). Producer Christopher Lloyd won his 12th and Director Glenn Weiss won his 11th, so while Cranston and Janney at 6 is impressive, don’t forget these other “Emmy hogs”! Among the 20 first time winners were Brad Pitt, Mark Ruffalo (I don’t know how much Julia Roberts had to do with making The Normal Heart, but she must really regret not getting a producing credit now), and former NBC President Warren Littlefield (he was a producer on Fargo), along with 2 new producers on Modern Family and 2 on The Amazing Race, so there is new blood after all!

    Also, noting the most winning performers, don’t forget Mary Tyler Moore with 7 and Tim Conway and Carl Reiner with 6 awards!

    It wasn’t touched on much, so thanks for mentioning Littlefield, NateDoggg. Glad to see him doing well after presiding over the last truly great period for NBC. His “Top of the Rock” book was pretty entertaining.

    I don’t know why I left off Mary; I think when I made the list over a year ago I wasn’t sure if I should count 6 or 7 since one was a double win for the same performance which I found dubious. Now I remember that I marveled at how awards-tastic the MTM cast was.

    I don’t see 6 for the other 2.

    I got that info from the Emmys fact sheet, but, now that I looked into it, it look like Conway has 5 performance Emmys (2 guest acting in comedy and 3 supporting acting in variety) and 1 for writing, while Reiner has 3 performance Emmys (1 guest acting in comedy and 2 supporting acting), along with 3 writing Emmys and 3 producing Emmys.

    It’s incredible how Breaking Bad is only the fifth drama ever to win 5 primetime Emmys in the same year.

    No one’s made a big deal about it, but does Joan Cusack get some kind of
    recognition for being one of the only people nominated in comedy and
    drama for the same character (heck, for even the same series)?

    Is she the only person to achieve this?

    I immediately went to Moonlighting which competed and got two nominations in Comedy for its first season, but none of the actors were nominated that year, they were nominated the following year in the drama categories.
