Fox's real-time drama thriller snared the trophies for best drama and lead actor for star Kiefer Sutherland during Sunday's 58th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, while NBC's offbeat workplace comedy capped its sophomore-season turnaround with the Emmy win for comedy series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The big winners in the top acting categories included Julia Louis-Dreyfus for lead actress in a comedy for CBS' The New Adventures of Old Christine and Mariska Hargitay for lead actress in a drama for NBC's Law & Order: SVU.
The HBO miniseries Elizabeth I led all programs with nine wins. The most decorated series of the night was 24, which snared five statues, including the drama series directing nod to Jon Cassar. 24 earned Fox's first-ever wins in the outstanding drama and lead drama actor categories.
