    It may have gone off the air almost a full year ago, but the Breaking Bad craze is still strong in Hollywood, because the beloved AMC drama just swept the 66th Annual Emmy Awards in every major category in which it was nominated. Aaron Paul opened up the streak by winning for Outstanding Supporting Actor. Anna Gunn took home the trophy as Outstanding Supporting Actress. Then, naturally, main man Bryan Cranston won his fourth Emmy for Walter White as Outstanding Actor. And finally, to close out the evening, Breaking Bad took the statue for Outstanding Drama. Because really, could there be any better send-off for one of the best dramatic television shows ever?

    Not to mention, Moira Walley-Beckett, who also won the top prize for writing the famed "Ozymandias" episode. It couldn't have gone any more perfectly.

    The 66th Annual Emmy Awards, hosted by Seth Meyers, saw some expected wins as well as some unexpected upsets. Who thought that Kathy Bates would win over Julia Roberts? Or that True Detective would triumph over stiff competition like Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, and, well, every other show in the directing category? Or Benedict Cumberbatch over Mark Ruffalo? Here are the winners in the major categories.

    The 66th Annual Emmy Awards In Memoriam segment was particularly touching this year. There is no doubt that 2014 saw an enormous amount of talent pass on. The most unexpected, however, was Robin Williams. The surreally talented comedian and actor committed suicide this year and the world was shocked and saddened. Billy Crystal, who headed up Comic Relief with Robin and Whoopi Goldberg, and who was friends with Robin for 20 years, paid tribute to his pal and inspiration.

    The nominations for this year's Emmy Awards have been officially released and, boy, are there some goodies on the list!

    The biggest television awards show of the year, which will take place on August 25, is going to be packed to the gills with our fave celebs. With a few exceptions, voters this year were fair and chose nominees who truly deserve to be recognized for their talent.

    Leading the pack was HBO's Game of Thrones, which racked up an astounding 19 nominations, including those for Best Drama Series, Best Supporting Actor (Peter Dinklage), and Best Supporting Actress (Lena Headey). At its heels were shows like Orange Is the New Black, Modern Family, and Downton Abbey. And let's not forget our fave reality competition shows -- The Voice is taking it this year, if you ask me.

    See the complete list here and let us know if you think they left anyone out.

    Susan Sarandon is an amazing actress, which means that she’s been nominated for quite a few awards during her decades-long career. Over 41 years of acting, she’s racked up five Emmy, seven Golden Globe, and five Oscar nominations. That’s a lot of award shows to attend, and even more acceptance speeches to sit through.

    On Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, the seasoned star revealed her secret to taking it all in stride. When host Andy Cohen asked her to name a major Hollywood event that she was stoned at, she responded, “Only one?” Then she laughed and said, “I would say almost all except the Oscars.”

    It’s been just three months since Kaley Cuoco, 27, of Big Bang Theory fame, and tennis star Ryan Sweeting started dating, but it looks like the adorable couple is ready for a more serious commitment. Her rep confirmed to Us Weekly that Sweeting, 26, proposed to his sweetheart on Wednesday.

    The couple made their red carpet debut just days ago, when they stepped out together for a pre-Emmys bash and then the Emmy Awards show in L.A. It looks like Kaley is pretty stoked about the engagement, tweeting, “Flying high, I could literally touch the sky with you ...” She also Instagrammed an adorable picture of two little penguins holding hands, with the caption, “I love u @ryansweething :)”

    People are still talking about Sunday's Emmy Awards. While the surprise winners and hilarious speeches (I'm looking at you Merritt Wever) are definitely points for discussion, not everyone is giving the telecast awards for awesomeness. See what I did there? Awards on awards on awards, son. But anyway -- back to the folks talking Emmy-smack -- Ellen Pompeo of Grey's Anatomy is chief among the broadcast's detractors.

    As the star of one of the most diverse shows on television, Ellen wasn't impressed. She spoke up about the white-washing of the show, which she thought was apparent. I quietly read all of her comments while nodding and saying "YES. THIS."

    So full disclosure: As a Pittsburgh Steelers fan (don't make fun of me, it's been a rough season), I was only able to watch a solid two minutes or so of the Emmys last night. But that doesn't mean I didn't check out who won -- and was legitimately shocked by the winners list this year. Upsets seemed to rule the evening.

    Thank goodness though Breaking Bad won for Best Drama Series since this is its last season. If you haven't tuned in, you really ought to immediately. It was the show's first win in the category, and it would have been borderline tragic had it not been recognized during its incredible five-season run.

    But then we have ... Jeff Daniels winning Best Actor for The Newsroom over Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Kevin Spacey (House of Cards)? Especially because Newsroom so far has been pretty meh and the other two seemed to be the only heavy players. As Daniels said when he went up to the podium:

    "Well, crap."

    It's been over two months since Cory Monteith's untimely, tragic passing, yet his name is still making headlines, this time because of a controversy brewing in regards to the Emmy Awards. It seems that in addition to the "In Memoriam" segment, on Sunday, the Emmys will separately honor Cory, James Gandolfini, Gary David Goldberg, Jean Stapleton, and Jonathan Winters.

    And apparently this has some people very, very angry.

    Many commenters are saying Cory didn't have enough of a career to be honored with the other four on this list. They're pissed that Andy Griffith was passed over. And they're saying that the Emmys are glamorizing his OD by making such a huge deal in honoring the death of a druggie.

    Suffice to say: Wow, people on the Internet sure can be a bunch of insensitive jerks.
