Emmy voters went a bit crazy with this year’s votes and the list of winners is loaded with surprises revealed during an otherwise mediocre show. Neil Patrick Harris gave it his best but the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards just didn’t have any energy or flow. What it did have were some of the biggest upsets in recent Emmy memory. The show kicked off with Nurse Jackie‘s Merritt Wever winning in the Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category, and most certainly Wever didn’t expect to be taking the stage to accept an award. In fact, the only thing Wever could manage to say on stage was, “Oh, my God. Thank you. Thanks so much. Thank you so much. I’ve got to go. Bye.”
 
Also pulling off surprise wins were Stephen Colbert toppling Jon Stewart’s reign in the Outstanding Variety Series category, The Voice beating Emmy-favorite The Amazing Race to take home the Outstanding Reality-Competition Program Emmy, and Jeff Daniels collecting the Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series for The Newsroom over Bryan Cranston for Breaking Bad, Hugh Bonneville for Downton Abbey, Damian Lewis for Homeland, Jon Hamm for Mad Men, and Kevin Spacey for House of Cards.
