AMC's Mad Men made it four straight Emmy wins in the best drama series category Sunday night.

The Matt Weiner-produced, retro advertising series beat out HBO's tandem of Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones, as well as Showtime's Dexter, CBS's The Good Wife and DirecTV's Friday Night Lights.

In accepting the award, Weiner said, "I did not think this was going to happen ... we are so greatful to the Television Academy for recognizing this show again."

The win ties Mad Men with NBC's Hill Street Blues and The West Wing for most consecutive Emmy wins in the category.
