    Fantasy drama series "Game of Thrones" and comedy "Veep" won the top Emmys for a second straight year on Sunday, fending off challenges from newcomers. "Game of Thrones," which went into Sunday's show with a leading 23 nominations, won a total of 12 Emmys, including for directing and writing. "Game of Thrones" writer D.B. Weiss thanked Time Warner-owned HBO on stage for "the support and resources to keep this giant lizard flying."(AP)

    Comedy–crime drama series "Fargo" went home empty-handed despite garnering 18 nominations at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, while best actress recipient Tatiana Maslany became the ceremony's most unexpected winner. Maslany picked up the lead actress trophy on her second nomination for BBC America's "Orphan Black".(Reuters)

    Another acclaimed series which did not feature in the winners list was Kevin Spacey-starrer "House of Cards". The Netflix's flagship drama had 13 nominations this year, but it walked away without a win at the Emmys, and Spacey and lead actress Robin Wright are still awaiting their first wins for their roles.

    Another surprise was Ben Mendelsohn of "Bloodline", who won best supporting drama actor. The Australian actor received his second consecutive nomination for the Netflix thriller, but few expected him to win, especially considering his significantly reduced screen time in season two. Mendelsohn triumphed in a field that included former winner Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington (both of 'Game of Thrones'), Jon Voight ('Ray Donovan'), Michael Kelly ('House of Cards'), and Jonathan Banks ('Better Call Saul').

    Host Jimmy Kimmel opened Sunday's show with a string of jokes about Republican presidential contender and former "Celebrity Apprentice" star Donald Trump. "If Donald Trump gets elected and he builds that wall, the first person we are throwing over it is Mark Burnett," quipped Kimmel, addressing Burnett, the British producer who created "Celebrity Apprentice."

    The competition escalated in recent years as newcomers like Netflix Inc and Amazon.com Inc poured money into programming, setting off a battle for top talent and the most buzz-worthy shows. Netflix says it will spend $5 billion on programming this year, more than double the roughly $2 billion spent by HBO. FX's programming budget is one-sixth the size of Netflix's, FX President John Landgraf told the Television Critics Association in August. (Reuters)

    Actress Priyanka Chopra, in her debut appearance at the Emmy Awards, opted for an understated look as she wore a plain one-shouldered all-red chiffon gown. With her hair neatly tied in a ponytail with a side part, Priyanka impressed fashion critics as she arrived at the 68th Emmy Awards in her Jason Wu outfit. Priyanka wore no jewellery except a diamond ring and drop diamond earrings. Though she wore light make-up, her vibrant red lipstick gave the perfect highlight to her look.
