It could be a big night for "Mad Men," ''Modern Family" and Bryan Cranston at the Emmys tonight. "Mad Men" has a chance to break a record by winning its fifth best drama award.

Bryan Cranston would tie a record if he wins his fourth best actor award for "Breaking Bad." ''Modern Family" will try to three-peat as best comedy. Ed O'Neill is hoping to win his first Emmy.

All the adults on "Modern Family" are nominated. "Modern Family" has 14 nominations in all, more than any other comedy. "Mad Men" and "American Horror Story" are tied with 17 nominations apiece.

Jimmy Kimmel is not only hosting on ABC, but also waiting to see if his late-night show wins for outstanding variety series.
