Emmy Awards: Sherlock and Breaking Bad win big

BBC One drama Sherlock has won a hat-trick of awards at the US Primetime Emmys in Los Angeles.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman won best actor and best supporting actor in a mini-series, although neither was at the ceremony.
Steven Moffat also won best writing in a mini-series for the final episode of Sherlock’s third season.
Drug drama Breaking Bad was the biggest winner on the night, scooping five awards including best drama series.
It was the second consecutive year that the show, which ended last September after five seasons, had picked up the ceremony’s highest honour.
Breaking Bad actors Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn and Bryan Cranston posed with their Emmy Awards.
There were four awards for Sherlock including best cinematography, music, single-camera picture editing and sound editing.
“It’s great to see Sherlock being recognised so spectacularly at the Emmys,” Ben Stephenson, controller of BBC drama said.
“I’m delighted that the BBC is home to so much world class acting and writing talent.”
