Homeland

Hit TV drama Homeland played spoiler at the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night, preventing Mad Men and Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston from boasting ceremony records.

The first season of the show picked up four awards at the Nokia Theatre, including Outstanding Drama Series and lead acting awards for stars Damian Lewis and Claire Danes.

Lewis prevented Cranston from tying Dennis Franz's four best actor awards record and the show's win stalled Mad Men, which was shut out on Sunday night, from claiming a record-breaking fifth trophy for Outstanding Drama Series.

TV movie Game Change and Modern Family were also four-award winners at the 2012 Emmys, claiming the night's Outstanding Miniseries or Movie and Outstanding Comedy Series trophies, respectively.
