With a whole slew of firsts, the 2013 Primetime Emmys took the television world by storm this past Sunday night.

From Breaking Bad’s first time taking home the gold to The Colbert Report’s big win, surprises lurked around every corner during the show. Some viewers found the show to be spot on while others feel the Academy missed the mark when it came to who was best.

Lauren Fulton, 23, a recreation management major from Perrysville, Ind., expressed her excitement for Modern Family’s outstanding comedy series win.

“That show is one of the funniest on television right now,” Fulton said. “It has every family dynamic showcased in it that you could ever want. They are so worthy of the award.”

Ivy Hutchison, a media arts student from Traverse City, Mich., wasn’t impressed with the show, overall.

“It was full of snubs,” Hutchison said. “No one could have predicted the results, they were so random especially in the acting categories. The only award that the academy got correct was that Breaking Bad won best television series.”

Some thought Breaking Bad’s big win was less than shocking.

“I wasn’t surprised at all,” said Katie Jagoda, 21, a recreation management major from Oroville, Calif. “The TV show has a huge following, and I’ve heard that it really sucks you in when you start watching it.”
