Emmy Surprises 2012

What Was the Biggest Surprise of This Year's Emmys?

All of this year's Emmy Awards have been handed out, and while some categories had repeat winners (yes, Modern Family still rules), there were a few big surprises. We're still kind of in shock that Damian Lewis won outstanding lead actor — not because he didn't deserve it, but because Bryan Cranston had never lost before. He wasn't the only lead actor to raise eyebrows; Jon Cryer's comedy win for Two and a Half Men was also unexpected. But maybe the biggest surprise wasn't a victory, but a loss, which is what Mad Men experienced across the board. The series lost all 17 categories it was nominated for — a record shutout. But which of these was the biggest surprise for you? Weigh in below.
