The 63rd edition of the annual Primetime Emmy Awards took place Sunday evening at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The event which was anchored by Jane Lynch of the Glee series, attracted the very best of Hollywood. The night belonged to Modern Family as the mega-hit show won the first four awards of the evening, and five of the seven televised awards in the Comedy category.

The ever controversial Charlie Sheen was at the occasion and presented the Best Lead Actor in a Comedy series to Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory.  Before he read out the nominees in the category, he paused briefly to wish the new cast of Two And A Half Men luck with the new season. “We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television,” he said.
