On the legal series, Plimpton plays high-powered attorney and mom Patti Nyholm, who can game the legal system as well as the regular cast of characters.

Jeremy Davies won for his guest appearance on FX drama Justified.

Comedy series guest star winners were Kathy Bates for CBS' Two and a Half Men and Jimmy Fallon as host of NBC's Saturday Night Live.
