LOS ANGELES — Records could be set and hearts definitely will be broken at the Emmy Awards.

Sunday's ceremony gives "Mad Men" a chance to snare its fifth best drama award. It's now tied with "Hill Street Blues," ''L.A. Law" and "The West Wing."

"Breaking Bad" and "Homeland" are among the series that could prove spoilers for AMC's saga about 1960s America.

Bryan Cranston of "Breaking Bad" has a shot at his fourth best drama actor victory, which would tie Dennis Franz's record set for "NYPD Blue."

If Cranston wins, that would leave "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm and Michael C. Hall of "Dexter" out in the cold for the fifth time.

Jimmy Kimmel hosts the ceremony airing live at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
