66th Annual Emmy Nominations Announced

23 hours ago | 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 »

Emmys 2014: Too many great shows, not enough spots, and some dumb choices

10 July 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It should be easy to feel sympathy for Emmy voters in 2014. There is more good television now than ever before, available in more places (including non-traditional streaming video outfits like Netflix and Amazon) than ever before. There is abundant category confusion, where a show like "Shameless" can jump from drama to comedy after presenting its bleakest season ever, where "True Detective" can be considered as a drama series while "American Horror Story" is a miniseries even though the two shows have the same basic structure, where the fourth season of "Tremé" has to be considered a miniseries because it didn't produce enough episodes to qualify elsewhere, where voters are asked to consider what Jim Parsons does on "Big Bang Theory" in the same context of what Louis C.K. does as an actor on "Louie." It is an impossible job, really. Even TV critics whose sole job is to watch this »

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.

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, »
