Here's the Exact Moment Matthew McConaughey Realized He Lost

The competition for the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama series was intensely fierce — so much so that even presenter Julia Roberts couldn't believe the list of great performances that were battling against one another. The lead battle appeared to be between True Detective's Matthew McConaughey, who would have made history if he'd won the same year he won an Oscar, and Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, who was coming off his show's flawless final season. Despite nearly everyone assuming that Matthew would win (including presenter Jimmy Kimmel), Bryan snagged the award. Relive the exact moment that Matthew realized he had lost and quickly started clapping above and watch Bryan's winning speech below.

Interesting to watch all their faces... you wouldn't know any of them had just lost. I guess they are actors so they can hide disappointment well... it's kinda fascinating, actually. I wear my emotions on my sleeve lol. I am sure I would make some sort of sad face if I lost.. even if only for a second.
