Felicity Huffman won for her work as a harried mother in Desperate Housewives. She said, "I love actors. But even more than acting, I love the community of actors. I'm so happy I can make a living at it, because I was never very good at math."

Speaking on behalf of the cast of Lost actor Terry O'Quinn referred to his fellow cast members as "the saddest collection of climbing, grasping, paranoid, back-stabbing, scene-stealing losers and schmoozers that you ever saw on your stage in your life".

Sandra Oh is over the moon on being recognised

The best-actress award for a television drama series went to Sandra Oh for the medical soap Grey's Anatomy. Keifer Sutherland won for his role as a counter terrorism agent in the real time action drama 24.
