NEW YORK (CBS) The first upset of the 2010 Emmy ceremony Sunday night in Los Angeles came when Bravo's "Top Chef" wrestled the Outstanding Reality Competition Program award away from "The Amazing Race."

It ended a seven-year streak for the CBS Sunday night reality TV show, hosted by Phil Keoghan.

The Nokia Theatre audience went wild, registering its surprise at the award.

The most surprised people in the audience? Perhaps the show's host Padma Lakshmi and judge Gail Simmons, who went running through the audience to meet their colleagues on stage.
