The best moments at the 2014 Emmy Awards

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Emmy Awards left a lot of people talking. The 66th annual awards show aired Monday night. 

One of the most memorable moments was a tribute to the late actor Robin Williams. Long-time friend Billy Crystal talked about their friendship and said, "As genius as he was on stage, he was the greatest friend you could ever imagine: supportive, protective, loving."

It was a big night for "Breaking Bad."  The AMC series took home the trophy for Outstanding Drama, Outstanding Writing, Best Actor in a Drama Series, Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series and Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

Some were upset that the HBO series "True Detective" didn't take the Outstanding Drama Series prize. And many more were upset that the series' star, Matthew McConaughey, didn't win Best Actor in a Drama Series.

Kansas City, Kan., native Eric Stonestreet's show, ABC's "Modern Family," took home the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row.

That upset fans of Netflix's "Orange is the New Black." Many believe it should have won that category.

Another Kansas City native who was nominated, Don Cheadle, did not win for "House of Lies."

Jim Parsons, of CBS' "The Big Bang Theory," won that award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.
