The groundbreaking action series “24,” which turns one dangerous day into a season, ended Sunday with a bang as it won Emmys for best drama series and best actor for Kiefer Sutherland.

“The Office” was honored as best comedy although its star, Steve Carell, lost the award for best actor in a comedy series to Tony Shalhoub of “Monk.”

One Emmy front-runner, sexy medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy,” was shut out in the awards.

“Every once in a while you’ll have an evening that just reminds you that you’re given too much and this is that evening,” Sutherland said. “This experience on ‘24’ has been nothing but remarkable for me.”

Mariska Hargitay of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and Julia Louis-Dreyfus of the freshman comedy “The New Adventures of Old Christine” struck Emmy gold with lead actress awards for drama and comedy, respectively.

“Well, I’m not somebody who really believes in curses — but curse this, baby,” Louis-Dreyfus said hoisting her trophy and making a veiled reference to the so-called “Seinfeld curse” that kept three of its stars from launching successful new series.

Congrats to Kiefer Sutherland for FINALLY getting that Emmy. He deserved it for many years now so it's nice to see him win it. 24 was great this season so it deserved to win best drama as well.

I was just a little upset that either 'Logan' won an award for their work in 24.

If you decide to ever watch it, go out and rent the first season and watch it first, followed by the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th.... so in order. Trust me, you'll love the show.

Trust me, you'll love the show.Exactly how I did it and now I am hooked. The only thing that sucks about doing it that way is that people give up plot points accidently, which kinda ruins it.

The Office is the funniest show on TV, glad to see it win last night. I haven`t seen `24 yet, but I think I`m going to start renting the past seasons DVDs, and see what all the buzz is about.

I'm surprised if you like Lost you never got into 24. They're the 2 best shows on TV, IMO.
