    Even The Good Wife's star isn't over the show's shocking death! 

    The ever-deserving Julianna Margulies took home the Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her flawless portrayal of Alicia, beating out Lizzy Caplan, Claire Danes, Michelle Dockery, Kerry Washington and Robin Wright while helping to ease the pain of the brilliant show's Emmy snub. 

    "Thank you so much. What a wonderful time for women on television…but truly this belongs to Robert and Michelle King, all our writers who never cease to amaze me with 22 episodes a year," the 48-year-old actress said as she took the stage. "Christine Baranski, you are a beacon of light for all of us; and Josh Charles, I miss you every day—what were you thinking?" she added, alluding to her love interest's jaw-dropping death. 

    The now three-time Emmy Award-winning actress concluded by thanking her husband and child, "And to the two best things that ever happened to be—Keith and Kieran—the best part is coming home to you at the end of my day."

    Immediately following Margulies' accolade, the Emmy for Best Actor in a Drama Series was announced and while many predicted that the award would go to True Detective's Matthew McConaughey, Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston came out on top, marking his fifth Emmy win and 12th nomination. 

    "Even I thought about voting for Matthew," the 58-year-old actor, who now has four trophies for his portrayal of Walter White, quipped. "I have been blessed with an abundance of good fortune in my life...I did happen to stumble upon finding a passion that created a seed and bloomed into something so wonderful for me. I love to act. It is a passion of mine and I will do it until I have my last breath."

    "I will only say that I have gratitude for everything that has happened," he continued. "I have gratitude to the Academy for this lovely honor. To my family I love you guys...and especially to Vince Gilligan to make this possible for me to have this role of a lifetime. Gratitude for our writers, our directors, the wonderful crew that we have in New Mexico...my dear friend, Aaron Paul, I love you so much, you were with me all the way...to Anna Gunn, my television wife, extraordinaire, I love you, and especially those scenes in bed." 

    He concluded: "I'd like to dedicate this award to all the 'Sneaky Petes' of the world who thought that maybe settling for mediocrity was a good idea because it was safe. Don't do it. take a chance. Take risk. Find that passion, rekindle it. It's really worth it. God bless you." 

    Congrats, you two!
