Emmy voters just couldn't help themselves. Given a rich, vast, sprawling landscape of broadcast, basic cable, pay cable and streaming programs to choose from, a new system of online voting designed to increase participation and a plethora of new shows from all corners of the pop-culture galaxy, they pretty much voted for the same people they always vote for.

The abundance of quality programming and expanding field of options has created a logjam for the nighttime Emmy Awards, where the celebration over which shows earned nomination will inevitably give way to plenty of second-guessing about those that were overlooked.
Despite the onslaught of competition from sources such as Netflix, HBO – with its multifaceted lineup consisting of series, star-studded movies like “The Normal Heart” and specials – garnered 99 Emmy bids, the most nominations overall for the 14th consecutive year. The network amassed 108 nods in 2013.
Still, the burgeoning competition for the bragging rights and promotional benefits associated with Emmy recognition could be seen in the encroachment of new players, as well as the receding presence of the broadcast networks who share televising the awards on a rotating basis.
Netflix, for example, more than doubled its tally from 14 nominations in what amounted to its maiden year – when “House of Cards” led its ticket »

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.

HBO again led the way in nominations for the 66th annual nighttime Emmy Awards, buoyed by the strong showing of new drama “True Detective” and the movie “The Normal Heart,” as the voting again tilted heavily toward cable and new players such as Netflix.
As usual, the nominations announced Thursday morning mixed returning series with a few breakthroughs, with the logjam of quality programming inevitably bound to produce grumbling about those shows that were overlooked.
With “True Detective” nabbing nods for best drama as well as stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson — and “Game of Thrones” leading all programs, with 19 nods — HBO totaled 99 Emmy bids, the most of any network for the 14th consecutive year. The pay service’s coups also included a best-comedy nod to the new sitcom “Silicon Valley,” while one of the more high-profile network contenders, Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” didn’t make the cut.

The return of “Under the Dome” brought CBS closer, but NBC remained ahead in the summer demo derby last week, riding “America’s Got Talent” and, as it does every year, ruling primetime on Independence Day.
“Dome” kicked off its second season well below its huge numbers of last summer, but it still towered over all other original scripted programs for the week.
In cable, VH1′s “Hit the Floor” and TNT’s rookie “The Last Ship” were the top scripted originals in young adults, while the unscripted standouts included a pair of femme-friendly shows — Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi’s Wedding” and E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” — that went head to head on Sunday.
Overall, according to Nielsen estimates for June 30-July 6, NBC led in adults 18-49 with a 1.1 rating/4 share for its fifth demo triumph in seven weeks this summer — losing out »

Nowhere in the title of Best Multi-Camera Comedy Editing or in the rulebook does it state that variety shows may submit in this category, but "The Colbert Report" and "Conan" opened the floodgates last year when they became the first such programs to do so. -Break- Top 10 Emmy contenders for Best Single-Camera Comedy Editing Both reaped nominations, pushing out two-time winner "Two and a Half Men" and "2 Broke Girls," which were nominated the year before. But even if variety's eligibility in this category is suspect, some kind of a shakeup should be in order. Including those two variety contenders, there were just 14 entries on this ballot last year. 2013's nominees were: "The Big Bang Theory" (season 6 – third nomination) "The Colbert Report" (season 9 – third nomination) "Conan" (season 3 – first nomination) "Hot in Cleveland" (sea »
