Fred Armisen didn't get any Emmy nominations when he was a cast member of the most-nominated show in Emmy history, “Saturday Night Live.” But voters must have warmed to him, because Armisen was one of the big surprises in this year's voting, landing a nomination in the high-profile Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series category for “Portlandia.” Armisen and Carrie Brownstein write and star in the low-budget but charmingly oddball IFC sketch show, which grabbed a remarkable six nominations, twice as many as last year's previous high. The show was also honored for its writing, directing, art direction and. »

This year's Emmys is going to be Gaaaaaaay. And we couldn't be happier. Gay stories are being honored, including The Normal Heart and Modern Family (polar opposite depictions of gayhood). Straight actors who played gay have been nominated, such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Andre Braugher and Mark Ruffalo. And arguably most importantly of all, openly gay actors like Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon (Kate McKinnon!!!), were celebrated, for playing both gay and straight characters.

There’ll be plenty of time to celebrate what the Emmys got right (see the full list of nominees here) and to argue about what they got wrong—but this is not the place for that. Instead, we’re taking a step back to discuss weird bits of trivia about the award show’s less starry categories. You know, the stuff that’s really important. Such as:

Mindy Kaling and Carson Daly woke up bright and early to announce the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations on Thursday in La. There were many longtime favorites that received nominations, like Breaking Bad and Mad Men, while newcomers like Netflix's Orange Is the New Black and HBO's True Detective got first-time nods. Seth Meyers will serve as this year's host when the 66th Emmy Awards are broadcast on NBC on Aug. 25. Keep reading for all of the nominees, which we'll update as they come in!

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 »

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, »

The 2014 Emmy nominations were, as per usual, both thrilling and infuriating (mostly the latter). For every inspired nod (congrats, Kate McKinnon!) there was one that had me scratching the skin off my scalp (no best drama nod for The Good Wife?!). So without further adieu, I give you the good, the bad and the downright ugly from this year’s list.
