Emmy Nominations Are Here!

Here's the list of this year's Emmy nominees. The event itself, which is going to be hosted by Jane Lynch, will take place on September 18. Excellent shows that continued to be recognized: Mad Men, The Good Wife, Modern Family. Excellent shows being recognized for the first time: Parks and Recreation, Game of Thrones, Friday Night Lights! And while Nick Offerman was slighted, at least Friday Night Lights' leading duo got the nod again. As opposed to last year, all four male actors on Modern Family were nominated (Ed O'Neill was slighted last time); Melissa McCarthy got her first nomination (for Mike & Molly), while Betty White got her umpteenth; Matt LeBlanc snuck in there for Episodes; Jon Cryer was not snubbed because of Charlie Sheen; and even The Killing's Detective Sarah Linden's work was recognized.
