'Friday Night Lights' finally gets its due

11:05 p.m. ET is normally the time on Emmy night when we start vitriolic rants about all the injustices in the world, but not this year. After five fantastic seasons, "Friday Night Lights" finally took home two big kudos. The series won outstanding writing for a drama and outstanding lead actor for star Kyle Chandler -- all in its last year of eligibility. We could gripe about it losing best series, or the criminal overlooking of Chandler's other half, Connie Britton, but we'll instead be happy to send this series out in style. Clear eyes, full hearts forever. -- Mikey O'Connell, Zap2it Getty Images
