Movie stars such as Julia Roberts, Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey had VIP seating. But the 66th Annual Pimetime Emmy Awards were all about television and its stars including a long list from 'Breaking Bad" proving voters have a long memory since the finale aired 11 months ago.

Sporting a Clark Gable mustache and obviously enjoying the evening was Bryan Cranston. That actor who played the meth dealer Walter White on Breaking Bad captured his fourth best drama actor Emmy -- tying him with another four-time winner, Dennis Franz - and the audience's attention after grabbing Julia Louis-Dreyfus for a long kiss - as she made her way up to accept the award for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series for her work on Veep.
