19 July 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Chances are you've heard somebody rave about—or you yourself rave about—FX's Fargo miniseries. It's been nominated for numerous Emmys and did well in the ratings. It brought Billy Bob Thorton to TV and gave even more attention to Sherlock and Hobbit star Martin Freeman. It also gave us Allison Tolman. Tolman has four acting credits to her name on IMDb: A bit part on Prison Break, Sordid Lives: The Series, a short titled A Thousand Cocktails Later and Fargo. She's arguably the breakout star of Fargo and is in a crowded Emmy category that also includes Emmy and Oscar royalty: Kathy Bates, Julia Roberts, Ellen Burstyn, Angela Bassett and Frances Conroy.

Is 'True Detective' worthy? 'Modern Family,' again? The critics react to 2014's Emmy nods

10 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Melissa Maerz: Jeff,

When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid. Among the smartest choices »

Emmy Scorecard: Ryan Murphy Productions Nabs More Noms Than Most Studios

10 July 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ryan Murphy loves it when people who work on his shows are recognized in kudos races. He was rolling in clover on Thursday with an eye-popping 34 Emmy noms garnered by his Ryan Murphy Prods. banner.

The haul primarily came through big showings from FX’s “American Horror Story: Coven,” with 17 noms, and HBO’s “The Normal Heart,” with 16. “Glee” contributed a comedy directing nom for Paris Barclay.

Murphy’s tally helped 20th Century Fox TV and its affils lead the studio pack in Emmy tonnage with 44 bids for its various banners — and that’s not including the 16 for “Normal Heart,” which Murphy produced through HBO.

Sony Pictures TV grabbed 36, thanks to “Breaking Bad” (16) and “Masters of Sex” (5). Universal TV had 33, driven by “Saturday Night Live” (14), “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (4). Warner Bros. TV and its affils took in 30, paced by “The Big Bang Theory” (7) and “Shameless” (3).

The 2014 Emmy Award Nominations

10 July 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Unsurprisingly, HBO leads this year's nominees for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. The network's early days of AIDS telemovie "The Normal Heart" dominated its categories with a full nine nominations amongst the major awards. Their fantasy series "Game of Thrones" scored the most nominations of any program overall - six for the major awards and a further thirteen amongst the technical awards.

Regarding the major awards, FX's "Fargo" was the show in front with eight nominations; "Breaking Bad," "Orange is the New Black," "House of Cards" and "Downton Abbey" were next with seven; "Game of Thrones," "Modern Family" and "American Horror Story: Coven" all scored six; "True Detective" and "Sherlock" got five each; "The Good Wife," "Mad Men" and "Veep" nabbed four apiece; and "Luther," "Masters of Sex," "Silicon Valley," "Scandal" and "Louie" all scored three each.

66th Annual Emmy Nominations Announced

10 July 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The nominations for the 66th Emmy Awards were released this morning, and I’m surprisingly satisfied with the results. Though there were an overabundance of nominations for the so-so Netflix series House of Cards and not nearly enough (read: any) for BBC America’s criminally-underrated Orphan Black, including for lead actress Tatiana Maslany, the categories shook out in a mostly predictable, if fair way.

Of course, heavyweights Breaking Bad and True Detective will be duking it out in the Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series categories (the latter of which saw both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson swipe nominations). Other shows which scored big include American Horror Story: Coven, dominating the Miniseries categories, Game of Thrones, which has the most nominations at 19, and Fargo, trailing just behind with 18.

I’m particularly pleased to see Idris Elba squeak into Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie »

Which former Oscar winners were nominated for 2014 Emmys?

10 July 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This morning was like Christmas for TV and Emmy fanatics, and among the nominees this year, as usual, were a slew of former Oscar winners. In the acting categories this year, it was no surprise to see Matthew McConaughey chalked up for his work in HBO's "True Detective" just four months after completing a near run of the movie awards season table that culminated in a Best Actor Oscar win for "Dallas Buyers Club." Will HBO's decision to put the show in the drama series category rather than miniseries hold him back from an Emmy, given the potential bounty of goodwill for Bryan Cranston and the final season of "Breaking Bad?" We'll soon find out. Joining McConaughey in the category was "Usual Suspects" and "American Beauty" star Kevin Spacey, nominated a second-straight year for Netflix's "House of Cards. In the supporting actor ranks, Jon Voight, Oscar winner for 1978's "Coming Home, »

The 2014 Emmy Award nominations were announced today and led by HBO's "Game of Thrones" with 19 total nominations. New show "Fargo" scored 18, followed by "American Horror Story", "Breaking Bad", The Normal Heart and not too far down the line "True Detective" with 12. The one show I love and continue to watch, "Hannibal" received zero nominations, but then again, I have never paid too much attention to the Emmys, primarily because people have to nominate themselves, something I've never understood. "Game of Thrones" 19 "Fargo" 18 "American Horror Story: Coven" 17 "Breaking Bad" 16 "The Normal Heart" 16 "Saturday Night Live" 14 "House of Cards" 13 "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" 12 "Downton Abbey" 12 "Orange Is the New Black" 12 From a network perspective, leading the pack was HBO, coming in just one nomination shy of a 100 and it wasn't even a close race with CBS coming in second with 47.
