Some of Hollywood's hottest stars are waking up winners, and some, losers, after the 61st primetime Emmy Awards show Sunday night. Even though actor Neil Patrick Harris hosted the show for the first time, it all seemed like a repeat from last year. If you watched Sunday night's primetime Emmy Awards, something might have seemed awfully familiar. That's because many of the winners had been on that stage before.

First time host Neil Patrick Harris showed off his multiple talents with an opening number, but after that, the surprises were few and far between.

Mad Men won for Outstanding Drama, again.

30 Rock won for a 3rd year in a row for comedy.

Bryan Cranston in Breaking Bad, Glenn Close in Damages claimed the drama acting categories, again.

30 Rock's Alec Baldwin won Lead Actor Comedy Series again.

There were some first-time winners, Jon Cryer won outstanding supporting actor for the highly viewed comedy Two and a Half Men.

Also new, Toni Collete took Best Comedy Actress for the United States of Tara.

Supporting Actress in a Comedy went to Kristin Chenoweth for Pushing Daisies which was cancelled by ABC. "I'm unemployed now, so I'd like to be on 'Mad Men.' I'd also like to be on 'The Office' and '24,'" said Chenoweth.

From 24, another newcomer for Dramatic Supporting Actress went to Cherry Jones, while Lost's Michael Emerson won again for Supporting Actor.

The Amazing Race captured reality series again.. seven years in a row.

Emmy Host Neal Patrick Harris got a little sarcastic. "Unbelievable.. Upsets at every turn."

And another seven time winner, The Daily Show with John Stewart, Emmy déjà vu all over the place.
