The 2009 Emmys were a lot like 2008's, as both 'Mad Men' and '30 Rock' repeated their wins in the show's top series categories while several individual actors also won back-to-back trophies. 'Men' continues its hot streak of being the "it" show by winning for best drama series despite being on cable network AMC, while Tina Fey's 'Rock' added another accolade with its best comedy series win, with Fey thanking NBC for "keeping us on the air even though we are so much more expensive than a talk show."

There was a surprise here and there, though, as 'Rock' star and creator Fey lost in the best comedy actress category to 'United States of Tara' actress Toni Collette. In other mild shockers in the supporting comedy category, Jon Cryer of 'Two and a Half Men' and 'Pushing Daisies' actress Kristen Chenoweth beat out some bigger names in their respective categories.
