List of Winners at the 2008 Primetime Emmy Awards

Announcing the 2008 Emmy Winners!

Well, if we've learned anything from this year's list of Emmy award winners it's that the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences loves the smart sarcasm (30 Rock) and the historical dramas (John Adams and Mad Men). Those three series pretty much dominate the list of winners, though there's also clearly some love for Damages, In Treatment and the TV movie Recount.

Not a win in sight this year for either Grey's Anatomy or Ugly Betty. Weeds also missed out altogether, while House earned one award for directing (Greg Yaitanes) and Lost picked up one award for sound mixing, but nothing else.

Are you surprised by any of this? Delighted? Disappointed? How do these winners stack up against what your hopes were before the awards ceremony?

To see a full rundown of all the 2008 Emmy winners, just
