LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Breaking Bad," the brutal, drug-fueled saga of an everyman's ambition turned evil, captured its first best drama Emmy Award on Sunday, denying the online series "House of Cards" a history-making honor.

"I did not see this coming," said "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, tipping his hat to Netflix's political thriller "House of Cards," the first digital contender for top Emmy honors.

Attention and acclaim for the AMC cable channel's "Breaking Bad" has built as it nears the end of its five-season run next Sunday, with the final eight-episode arc eligible for next year's Emmys.

"Modern Family" won its fourth consecutive trophy for top comedy series even though its oft-honored cast was shut out this time.

Jeff Daniels won the Emmy for best drama series actor for his portrayal of an idealistic TV anchorman in "The Newsroom," with Claire Danes capturing top actress honors for her troubled CIA agent in "Homeland."
