Chandler Wins Emmy For Best Actor In A Drama Series

 Kyle Chandler ended AMC's three-year Emmy reign in the best actor in a drama series category. 

The Friday Night Lights star beat out Steve Buschemi (HBO's Boardwalk Empire); Michael C. Hall (Showtime's Dexter); Kyle Chandler (Directv's Friday Night Lights); Hugh Laurie (Fox's House); Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Timothy Olyphant (Fx's Justified) for the honor.

Bryan Cranston had taken top honors in the category the past three years for his portrayal of Walter White on AMC's Breaking Bad, but was not eligible for this year's Emmy Awards.
