New Zealand's Flight of the Conchords duo did not win any awards in this year's television Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, despite being nominated in the directing, writing and music categories.

The big winners included cable TV series Mad Men, which won best drama, and John Adams, which set an Emmy record by winning 13 awards, including best mini-series.

Comedy series 30 Rock also cleaned up, pipping Flight of the Conchords for the comedy-writing award.

30 Rock and its stars Alec Balwin and Tina Fey also took the best comedy and comedy actor and actress awards.

Glenn Close won an Emmy for best drama actress for her part in Damages, while Bryan Cranston took the best drama actor title for his role in Breaking Bad.
