Get More: Awards, Emmys, News

Emmy NominationsNominations for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced Thursday morning by Breaking Bad boy Aaron Paul and three-time Emmy winner/How I Met Your Mother star/2013 Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris.

American Horror Story: Asylum scared up the most nods of anyone, amassing 17 total (including for Outstanding Miniseries and frontwoman Jessica Lange), while Game of Thrones followed closely with 16.

On the comedy front, 30 Rocks farewell run netted 13 total noms, followed by Modern Family‘s 12 and The Big Bang Theory‘s eight.

By network, HBO dominated with 108 total nominations, followed — distantly — by CBS and NBC, which each tallied 53.

Of note, Lead Comedy Actress contender Julia Louis-Dreyfus made Emmy history by besting Lucille Ball’s mark of 13 career noms; Scandal converted its buzz into possible bling, with a pair of nods (including for Kerry Washington); and both Netflix’s House of Cards and USA Network’s passed-on Political Animals reaped votes.

      • I’m voting for Matt Damon to win as lead actor in a miniseries , although Michael Douglas
        is nominated in the same category. It should have been Matt Damon in the supporting role
        in a miniseries for behind candelabra.
        that way both Matt Damon and Michael Douglas can both win an emmy
        I hope the tv movie “behind candleabra” wins an emmy , it was a really good movie

    • LMFAO. Its so true though. The first name that comes to mind is Monica Potter. I can find about 20 names to fill that spot. I will say this though like i do every year, until they split the categories to cable and broadcast we are always going to have cable dramas and comedies dominate the nominations. Yes there was a bit more of a mix this year i feel but there are names and shows that deserve nods. Overall a lot of the nominations were as expected and i am ecstatic that Kerry Washington got her nod. Claire Danes will be hard to beat but if anyone can i think Kerry is the one who might just do it.

        • She doesn’t deserve a nomination cause her show is on CW, they coulnd’t have a more terrible reason.
          And @westlgirl from my point of view she isn’t a terrible actress. She is quite fine especially with all her transitions throughout the last season.

    • No Kaley Cuokoo as Penny? She is way better then the actresses nominated for Veep and Girls. I pretty much love everything on HBO, but those 2 shows are dumber than dumb. Also, Jennifer Carpenter is FABULOUS as Deb on Dexter. Can’t believe she isn’t on the list.

      Comment by Marcia – July 18, 2013 11:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • you think Kaley Cuokoo is a better actress than Lena Dunham? We disagree highly on what makes someone a good actress.

  • I don’t think either of them will win with that tough competition but I’m THRILLED to see Connie Britton and Kerry Washington both nominated for Lead Actress!!!!!! =)

    Comment by HeatherC – July 18, 2013 05:46 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I love Connie Britton, she’s the reason I started watching Nashville but lets be honest, she was nominated because of politics/the fact that she’s Connie Britton. She’s such a talented actress but she was given no material worthy of that nomination. I could point out more worthwhile performances in one episode of Friday Night Lights than an entire season of Nashville. Wish that nomination had gone to Tatiana Maslany but I’m not naive enough to believe she actually had a shot.

      Comment by dude – July 18, 2013 05:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I respectfully disagree. I mean, there’s no doubt in anybody’s mind that Nashville is a soap, but, IMO, the acting on that show is top-notch. Rayna is a much more conflicted and ultimately less likable character than Tami, but that doesn’t mean that Connie doesn’t sell that part. I’m not saying there weren’t maybe politics involved, but I think it’s unfair to say she doesn’t deserve it.

        Comment by Miv – July 18, 2013 06:06 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Dude, I agree. Know Connie is a critics’ darling from way back, and I don’t hate her, but I find her stiff in this part and her singing is awful. By contrast, Hayden P. has blown me away in her part — including radio-worthy singing — and I wish she’d been recognized for it.

        Comment by Lyn – July 18, 2013 06:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • All due respect to Connie but Tatiana Maslany should of been nominated .
          She’s playing 5 parts exceptionally well.

          Comment by Whatever – July 18, 2013 10:19 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Hayden deserved it over her. She blew it out of the water all season. Connie just looked like she phoned it in but was nominated b/c of her experience. But that’s just my opinion. I didn’t watch Friday Night Lights either so I’m not a fan girl.

      Comment by GS – July 18, 2013 06:00 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I agree. And I did watch FNL. I adore Connie Britton, but Hayden deserves this nod over her. She was tremendously deserving for FNL, but the only thing Emmy-worthy in her Nashville performance is trying to sell her singing as anything more than a joke. Hayden, on the other hand, knocked the season out of the park.

        Comment by Magically Suspicious – July 18, 2013 06:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Not that I can say much because I haven’t watched the show, but the glimpse’s I saw, I do agree that Hayden deserved it over Connie. I feel everyone is a fan girl since Connie was in FNL. I loved FNL, and I was never a fan of Connie, sure she can act and is okay but I don’t think she is worthy of this nomination and I think she was handed it basically.

          Comment by cas – July 18, 2013 07:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Please do explain how it is possible that Tatiana Maslany didn’t get a nom? SHe plays so many different characters (pretending to be each other, as well) so brilliantly.. Ridiculous!
    Also; Ellen Pompeo rocked this season of Grey’s, with the pregnancy, falling down the stairs, scared her baby wasn’t gonna survive with every turn she took…
    Tho I’m not even surprised.. Grey’s seems to have been out of the running for years now.

    Comment by Dominique – July 18, 2013 05:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Tatiana didn’t get nominated because she’s not in a prestige show and didn’t have enough buzz going in. It’s very political and not so much about who necessarily gave the best performance but who gave performances that stuffy critics and television snobs most talk about.

      Comment by dude – July 18, 2013 05:51 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • You’re half right: buzz. If it wasn’t for TV critics, I wouldn’t have even heard of Orphan Black. The noms are always about popularity, and despite the pedigree of shows like Homeland, Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones, those shows have developed a massive following and the Academy tends to follow trends. It’s unfortunate, but that’s the Emmy’s for you.

        Comment by Darcy Rajotte – July 18, 2013 06:15 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • “Stuffy critics and television snobs” do talk about Tatiana Malsany and how great she is in Orphan Black, and how much she deserves the win. The people who vote for the Emmys aren’t critics, though – they’re people who are members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, which consists of people who work in the television industry. They are nominated by their peers, not by the critics.

        Comment by Adam – July 18, 2013 07:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • No, she didn’t get nominated because she plays more than one character…to get a nomination, you would have to submit footage of that ONE character’s scene…which “orphan” would she submit? She would have had to submit (to even have a chance) a scene for ALL the characters she plays on that show in order to receive the nod. Which one do you like better? I do remember hearing buzz about this when the show was on, the show couldn’t figure out which “orphan” scene to submit, so I think (don’t quote me on this) that they decided to go with none.

          Comment by TigerNightmare – July 18, 2013 09:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • That is not true. Just think of Saturday Night Live nominations – they play different characters each sketch.

          Comment by Adam – July 18, 2013 10:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Its a scifi show….and the Emmy people seem to have a blindspot when it comes to that genre. Same reason why neither Anna Torv or John Noble got nominations for Fringe.
      .
      Also probably doesn’t help that Orphan Black is Canadian.

      Comment by liz – July 18, 2013 05:59 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I agree on the scifi bias. Canadian not so much (Downton Abbey is on there). But She played all those characters and made them each unique. The Fringe cast did a good job with it but she is much better at it. When can we get the awards to see scifi is just another way to tell a great story?

          • The 10-episode, one-hour series is produced by Temple Street Productions for SPACE and BBC America.

            There you go….co production

            Comment by Shaun – July 18, 2013 09:55 AM PDT  
      • Agreed! Emmy’s are ALL about mainstream (excluding GoT. Seems to be the exception). John Noble got screwed over for 5 years. Heaven forbid they actually use their imaginations once in a blue moon and see EVERYTHING that’s out there and not just what they’ve been told.
        And Orphan Black is a BBC/Canadian co-production and I also believe that most everything that comes out of the BBC is brilliant. Canadian tv is starting to hit it’s stride though, finally, and who produces it SHOULDN’T be taken into consideration when looking at performances (even though it more than likely, is).

        And how the hell is Political Animals nominated AGAIN when it only had 8 episodes and was blatantly passed over for a second season?? Don’t get me wrong, I loved it but 2 Emmy’s in a row for a cancelled show? Come on!

        Comment by Andrea Sperling – July 18, 2013 08:04 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • GOT being an exception is 100% likely due to it being on HBO. It (unjustifiably, but it is what it is) makes it more legitimate in the eyes of those who nominate shows.

          Comment by Brooke – July 18, 2013 08:32 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Absolutely a sci-fi bias against Tatiana. I tried to express disbelief she would get nominated a few weeks ago, but other TVLine commentors tried to tell me she has “buzz” and therefore had a chance. As a long suffering sci-fi and fantasy fan, I knew it was the longest of long shots if John Noble had never managed to scare up a nom. I wish it WASN’T this way, but it is, and I had no expectations of it being any different this time around.

      Comment by Brooke – July 18, 2013 06:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Oh my god yes. I’m sorry, but as much as I think the actresses that were nominated are great in their own right, this season no one had even so much as a drop on Tatiana. What she did on Orphan Black is mindblowing and completely unprecedented. Any award for outstanding actress in a tv series she doesn’t win this year is by definition robbery. Again, with all due respect to the other women, all fantastic actresses, but no one has done what Tatiana has on that show.

      Comment by Mitholas – July 18, 2013 07:47 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I’ve yet to watch Orphan Black but I’ve heard nothing but immense praise for Maslany. I was actually expecting to see her get a nomination since her name was all over the place and it was all so positive. Perhaps down the line she’ll get some award recognition. Not that she needs it. She’s clearly impressing people.

        Comment by tripoli – July 18, 2013 02:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • History has proven the Emmys to be very much prejudiced towards the sci-fi genre, as was proven years ago in the case of Patrick Stewart as Capt. Picard on Star Trek TNG. His excellent performances in numerous episodes were left completely ignored, and I’m afraid the extremely talented star of Orphan Black may suffer the same fate. When will this blatant bias be overcome?

        Comment by Phil Holmes – September 6, 2013 04:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • To me, Maslany’s snub seems like a revival of all the years John Noble didn’t get a single nomination for Fringe. Utterly ridiculous, TV Academy – shame on you.

They nominated Kerry Washington over Keri Russel? Scandal is a good show but only thing i find noticeable about Ms. Washington is her never ending “for all occasions” pout! Where as Keri Russel delivered it in every single episode!!

    I still don’t understand the fuss over The Big Bang Theory. I have tried to watch it so many times, and it just feels forced to me.

    And while I loved the first season of Girls, the second season felt like a drop off to me.

    When are they going to announce the supporting and guest star nominations? I want Michelle Fairley and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to get noms.

I felt like I was watching the same episode every week because the plot was the same. That show and the actors in it deserve no nominations for their performances.

If it is though, where the heck is Tatiana Maslany’s name on the list of nominees for outstanding lead actress? She was the best and most hardworking actress this year.

    Comment by Marcella – July 18, 2013 05:54 AM PDT  Reply To This Post

There were some phenomenal performances on that net this year (not to mention for many years prior), but it’s frustrating how the net is just brushed over year after year because the Emmy crowd thinks that programming for younger adults isn’t “Emmy material.”

Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev & Katie Cassidy gave incredible performances this year. I was also hoping to see Revenge’s Emily VanCamp get a nod for her amazing performance this year.

I’m also very displeased that canceled or ended shows on premium cable got recognition but nothing for Happy Endings. It’s too difficult now with all the cable programming. Network television has produced just as good, if not better shows/acting performances on a scale where they can only push the envelope so far. It’s a real shame, this is why I feel the older generations now don’t care in the least about award shows.

The acting is phenomenal, the storyline is entertaining, and they’ve managed to keep this show interesting for 8+ years. I was shocked to discover that SPN has yet to win an Emmy. The acting from Jared, Jensen, and Misha, ALONE, is Emmy worthy.

And they’re certainly better than TVD actors. Not saying Nina isn’t a good actress, because she is. But she’s mostly hyped cause she plays two different characters. Take that away, and she’s not that much better than anyone else on that show.

Whereas Michelle Fairley and Nikolaj Coster-Waldu did at least one memorable thing this season. They took two of the most unlikeable characters in earlier seasons and made them memorable and likable and they should be recognize for that.Dany maybe a popular character but she is not the best character IMO.

          • She may be popular but it’s quite a stretch to say she’s the main reason people watch the show. Her acting is fairly average and her story has been rather boring this season. She gets a lot of attention for her dragons and for her looks. Not quite what I would call Emmy worthy, especially when one takes into account the other actresses on the show who are significantly more talented than Clarke.
