This morning, Fred Armisen used the words "really," "exciting" and "group" extensively as he hopped on the horn to discuss "Portlandia's" six Emmy Nominations for the 2014 honors. The IFC program earned nods for a varied crop of comedy and variety series awards, some of which are more elaborate than others: Art Direction For Variety, Nonfiction, Reality Or Reality-Competition Program; Directing For A Variety Series; Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Comedy Series; Guest Actor In A Comedy Series; and Writing For A Variety Series. But a surprise first for Armisen was in a major category, for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series. In my second interview in a half year with Armisen, I ask about his newly minted Supporting Actor nominee status, the snub of Brownstein for Supporting Actress, and what role (if any) he may play at the ceremony in August with "Late Night" buddy and Emmys ceremony host Seth Meyers. »
Remember a few years back, when Dakota Fanning was the precocious child star stealing all our hearts? Well, while Dakota has grown up, staring us down as an evil vampire in The Twilight Saga and appearing in smaller films like Night Moves, it’s pretty clear to see that her younger sister Elle has dethroned her in the hearts and minds of the general public.
Since breaking out with Somewhere and Super 8, younger Fanning hasn’t slowed down one bit, appearing in feel-good crowd-pleaser We Bought a Zoo, indie drama Ginger & Rosa, dystopian romance Young Ones and, most impressively, fairy-tale blockbuster Maleficent. Now, Fanning’s ready to finally prove herself as a lead actress, with news that she’s landed the lead role in How to Talk to Girls at Parties.

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’s omission from the very tough lead drama »

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 »

In one of the biggest Emmy reshuffles, voters welcomed “Silicon Valley” to the Outstanding Comedy Category — essentially replacing “Girls” with another HBO show with almost no girls. Besides “Girls,” the only show nominated in the category that didn't return this year is the Tina Fey-led “30 Rock” — which wasn't eligible because it ended. But it wasn't all bad news for women-dominated shows: Netflix's “Orange Is the New Black” also joined the category.

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 »
