No profession is more about reinvention than acting, but this year’s comedy supporting acting nominees are proof that Emmy voters enjoy seeing performers break out of boxes — even if those actors weren’t so sure they were in a box in the first place.
A prime example is Emmy veteran Allison Janney, who has four statuettes for her dramatic acting on NBC’s “The West Wing,” and earned her first comedy nom this year for her work as Bonnie, a recovering alcoholic single mom, on CBS’ freshman sitcom “Mom.” (She’s also nommed for her guest drama role on Showtime’s “Masters of Sex.”)
“I love comedy so much, and I’ve always been a very physical person,” she says. “It’s always been part of my repertoire. ‘Mom’ is a traditionally comic (show), but as far as I’m concerned, we could put ‘Mom’ in the drama category. »

As this group of Emmy nominees congregated together for an official photo Monday night in Beverly Hills, Kevin Spacey had an idea for the amateur photographers off the dais trying to snap the same shot: “Now, everyone turn around a take a selfie,” Spacey suggested. He is the expert. Spacey was the only current TV star in the famous Oscar selfie, besides ringleader Ellen DeGeneres. Top: Nominee Kevin Spacey, TV Academy governor Lily Tomlin, nominees Billy Bob Thornton, Joe Morton, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Tony Hale, TV Academy governor Bob Bergen, and nominees Minnie Driver, Allison Janney, Ty Burrell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson huddled up. »

At January's Screen Actors Guild Awards,"Modern Family" star Ty Burrell pulled off an upset in Best TV Comedy Actor, beating reigning seven-time champ Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock"). Indeed, Baldwin had never lost a bid for that role before. -Break- In our recent webcam chat (watch below), Burrell admits his admiration for Baldwin over the years and his surprise at the victory. Even though it was "unexpected," he says, "I always prepare some sort of speech just to alleviate my own anxieties. Otherwise I would spend the awards sort of tense about the off-chance I would have to go up and make something up." On the reigning four-time Comedy Series winner, Burrell plays Phil Dunphy, a somewhat goofy husband and father of three. He has been nominated at the Emmy Awards for all five seasons, winning Best Comedy Supporting Actor in 2011. His competition this year: Fred Armisen ("Portlandia"),...' »
Comedy Central has given a return date to a pair of sketch comedians so close, they’re separated by a mere ampersand: Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.

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.

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 »

Lead Actor in a Drama
- Gary Collinson
The 2014 Emmy Nominations were announced this morning, and they were about as surprising/disappointing as I expected. We're in the Golden Age of Television™, but no one seems to tell the Emmys. Yes, True Detective and Fargo got some love, but so did the awful awards-bait The Normal Heart, which picked up four out of six nominations for Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie. Then there are the usual suspects: Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, etc. Among tge acting nominations, I would say I'm pleasantly surprised about Andre Braugher getting attention for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and shocked that Kate Mara picked up an Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series nomination when really her CGI stunt double deserves all the credit. Hit the jump to check out the full list of the major Emmy nominations. The Emmy »

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.

Is it that time again? Yes, awards season is always our favourite time of the year and America’s most glamourous TV awards show The Emmys have revealed all the nominations for their 2014 award season.
Mindy Kaling and Carson Daily took to the stage to reveal the nominations, and there were some big surprises (and big shockers too!). The Brits are also flying the flag at the Emmys too, with Luther, Game Of Thrones, Sherlock and Downton Abbey all earning big nominations. But the bigger winners of the nominees are definitely HBO, you only have to look at the list to see how many times one of their shows or TV movies pop up.

The HBO fantasy drama, based on the books of George Rr Martin, will battle it out for the title of Outstanding Drama Series with Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, House of Cards, Mad Men and True Detective.
True Detective also did well in the nominations - with both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson winning Lead Actor shouts - while Fargo grabbed a nod for Outstanding Miniseries and recognition for stars Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Allison Tolman and Colin Hanks. The FX drama was in second place in the total number of nominations, picking up 18.

The Television Academy shook things up on Thursday (July 10) morning with nominations for the 66th Emmy Awards, nods that included a lot of fresh blood, but still simultaneously found a way to be perplexingly stuck in predictable Emmy ruts. It was a morning that saw big Emmy breakthroughs for "Orange Is The New Black," "Fargo" and "Silicon Valley," but saw limitations to the expected comeback for "The Good Wife," as Emmy voters continued to keep the faith with "Downton Abbey." With an impressive 19 nominations, "Game of Thrones" was this year's leading nominee. In addition to a Drama Series nomination, "Game of Thrones" picked up nods for Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey and Diana Rigg, plus a writing nomination for showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and a directing nod for Neil Marshall. Facing off against "Game of Thrones" will be "Mad Men," which avoided some of the predicted attrition, "House of Cards, »

Among the other nominees for Outstanding Drama were Downton Abbey, House of Cards, Mad Men and True Detective, all of which, with the exception of new series True Detective, have appeared in this category before.
HBO’s drama likewise picked up acting nominations for both Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in the Lead Actor in a Drama category. The new show scored a total of 12 nominations, just behind Netflix’s House of Cards with »
