NBC's press tour panel for the 2014 Emmy telecast was a chance for Seth Meyers and his "Late Night" producer Mike Shoemaker to talk about their approach to Seth hosting the show. Mainly, though, it was an opportunity for TV critics to complain to Television Academy chairman Bruce Rosenblum about the broken Emmy category system — and for Rosenblum to smile, talk about his desire to examine the problem, and then make clear that he has no real plans to do anything to fix it. In fact, Rosenblum mainly seemed to think that the category issue — where dramatic shows are submitted as comedies, where miniseries are submitted as ongoing series (and, in the case of shows like "Tremé" and "Luther," vice versa), where series regulars are submitted as guest stars — was a good thing, because it suggested a healthy state of the industry. "There's far more terrific programming today," he noted. "The »

Emmy nominations were announced this morning and as usual, there were a number of snubs and surprises, which the Internet collectively whined about this morning. Rather than continue to mourn the lack of a nomination for Tatiana Maslany (which I admittedly complained about as well), actual solutions need to be pitched. Sadly, “chain Emmy voters to a chair and make them actually watch Orphan Black” seems somewhat implausible and definitely criminal, so here are five reasonable and seemingly easy solutions the Emmys should consider next year.
1. A Dramedy Category
One of the most-nominated newcomers announced on Emmy morning was Orange is the New Black, which with 12 total nods amassed more than any other comedy, including Modern Family, Veep, and The Big Bang Theory. Yet most fans of the show would hesitate to classify it as a comedy. Compared to most of the other shows in the category, it certainly does not fit the pattern. »

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 »

In the days leading up to the announcement of the 2014 Emmy nominees, Variety set out to predict the most likely contenders in the drama, comedy, acting, miniseries and movies categories. While by no means an exact science, many of our picks made the final cut — with a few surprises joining them. Here’s how our predictions stacked up against the list final nominees:
The competition for best drama series led to an overabundance of contenders for the six slots that did not leave enough room for “The Good Wife,” as Variety had predicted. “Downton Abbey” once again garnered a nom, edging out the CBS drama and other hopeful pick “Masters of Sex”.
Although it was expected to come out ahead, two-time winner “Girls” did not see a nomination for comedy series this year. Nor did newcomer “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which was anticipated to pick up a series nom after »

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.

How could “The Good Wife” not make the cut this year? That was the question top of mind for many bizzers Thursday morning as they digested the news of the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations.
No doubt the drama series competition was fierce this year but the universal acclaim for “Good Wife’s” fifth season made it seem a slam-dunk for a return to the top race. The fact that “Downton Abbey” made the cut in a year when buzz on the PBS period sudser was definitely down a few notches only magnified the surprise for “Good Wife” fans.
Among the other head-scratchers in this year’s race:
Snub: Michael Sheen. Hard to believe that voters didn’t rally behind his fine slow-burn work as the repressed but adventurous sex research pioneer William Masters in Showtime’s “Masters of Sex.” Sheen »

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 »

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 nominations for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards have been announced today, with the epic fantasy series Game of Thrones leading the pack with 19 nods in total, including Best Drama Series, where it will compete against Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, House of Cards, Mad Men and True Detective. The small screen adaptation of Fargo pulled in 18 nominations, followed by American Horror Story with 17 and Breaking Bad and The Normal Heart with 16.
In terms of the broadcasters, HBO pulled in a whopping 99 nominations in total, while Netflix managed 31 nominations, thanks to strong showings for House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black. Check out the full list of contenders here…
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. HBO 99 CBS 47 NBC 46 FX Networks 45 ABC 37 The top shelf nominations are listed »

Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series
- Lucy Cave
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, »

How many different characters does Tatiana Maslany have to play to score an Emmy nomination?
The Orphan Black star’s absence from the 2014 Emmy nominations list was just one of the oversights that had fans howling Thursday morning.
And yet, overall, there were plenty of reasons for TV fans to get excited. HBO’s fan-favorite Game of Thrones led with 19 nominations, while FX’s outstanding newcomer Fargo was right behind with 18. HBO’s new comedy Silicon Valley broke into the best comedy ranks, while fellow HBO newcomer True Detective was honored for best drama. Plus there were first-time noms for »
