Breaking Bad, Modern Family score big at the Emmy's

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - LOS ANGELES, Cali.- The Emmy Awards honored television's finest work over the past year Monday night in Los Angeles, with "Breaking Bad" and "Modern Family" scoring top honors.

The final season of "Breaking Bad" won the outstanding drama series award, with Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn also winning awards for leading and supporting roles in the show. Julianna Margulies won the award for lead actor in a drama series for "The Good Wife." "Modern Family" won the award for best comedy series, with Ty Burrell taking home his second award as supporting actor in a comedy for the show. Jim Parsons took home another best actor in a comedy award for "The Big Bang Theory". Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus won the award for best lead actress in a comedy series for her roll on HBO's "Veep."

The awards also included an emotional tribute to actors, actresses and behind-the-scenes stars who passed away this year, ending in personal tribute to Robin Williams from Billy Crystal.

"Robin Williams, what a concept" Crystal said in the tribute. "He was the greatest friend you could ever imagine - supportive, protective, loving. It's very hard to talk about him in the past because he was so present in all our lives. For almost 40 years, he was the brightest star in the comedy galaxy."

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named. In fear, this could happen again. "It really scared me and kind of threw me off that night. I don't even want to drive by myself anymore," she said. She tells me that she was driving around North Spokane at night on her way home from work.
