LOS ANGELES — The sleek ’60s drama “Mad Men” made Emmy history Sunday as the first basic-cable show to win a top series award, while the sitcom “30 Rock” and its stars, Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, also emerged as winners.
Glenn Close of “Damages” and Bryan Cranston of “Breaking Bad” captured drama acting trophies at the 60th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
Close, honored for her portrayal of a ruthless attorney, complimented her fellow nominees, including Holly Hunter and Sally Field.
“We’re proving that complicated, powerful, mature women are sexy and are high entertainment and can carry a show,” she said. “I call us the sisterhood of the TV drama divas.”
