(Newser) – Whoops: Viewers watching the Emmys last night were dismayed when a montage celebrating shows that came to a close this year gave away the endings of many of those shows, Sky News reports. Among the series spoiled: Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, Nurse Jackie, Parenthood, and Boardwalk Empire. "Welcome back to the spoiler awards," host Andy Samberg said when he came back onstage. "I guess everyone on every show died." There was outrage on Twitter, the New York Daily News reports, but not everyone was sympathetic to the complainers.

For example: "To everyone complaining about spoilers: most of those shows ended in the spring. If you haven't watched you're not going to," tweeted one person. But, as another pointed out, "Hey #Emmys, we aren’t all @AndySamberg! Not everyone can lock themselves in a bunker and watch ALL the shows." (Read more Emmy Awards stories.)
