As predicted Friday, Tom Wilkinson picks up the Emmy for his role as Benjamin Franklin in "John Adams."
"I think right now America needs a prune," Stephen Colbert told fellow presenter Jon Stewart. "It may not be a young, sexy plum. Granted, it is shriveled and at times hard to swallow. But this dried up old fruit has the experience we need."
Directing for a miniseries, movie or dramatic special went to Jay Roach for "Recount."
"I just want to say...It's going to get close again this election. Keep your local officials honest and please vote, vote, vote," Roach said.
Writing for a miniseries, movie or dramatic special went to Kirk Ellis for "John Adams."
Ellis thanked producers for giving him the opportunity to talk about "a period of our history when articulate men articulated complex thoughts in complete sentences."
