LOS ANGELES, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- "Mad Men," a show about the employees of a 1960s ad agency, won the Emmy Award for outstanding drama series in Los Angeles Sunday night.

Also nominated for the prize were "Boston Legal," "Damages," "Dexter," "House" and "Lost."

Bryan Cranston took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama for his work in "Breaking Bad," while Glenn Close won the statuette for outstanding lead actress in a drama for her role in "Damages."

Upon collecting her award, Close saluted her fellow nominees -- Kyra Sedgwick, Holly Hunter, Sally Field and Mariska Hargitay -- and said: "I think we're proving that complicated, powerful, mature women are sexy and high entertainment and can carry a show. I call us the sisterhood of the TV drama divas. Helen Mirren and Judi Dench are in that group."
