Olivia Munn is known for her role as a brilliant and quirky financial reporter on The Newsroom, and as it turns out, that knowledge isn't all an act.

"I heard my name, and I go, 'Oh, that's what it sounds like when you win,' " Daniels, who won for his lead role as the self-righteous anchor Will McAvoy on The Newsroom, told reporters at HBO's afterparty on the Plaza of the Pacific Design Center, Sunday. "You hear your name just like that. 'Well, I won!' "

Going into the ceremony, the favorite appeared to be Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, who had won for the past three years. When Daniels's name was announced instead, reported The New York Times, "There were audible gasps of 'Whoa!' and 'What?' in the auditorium."
