The nominations for this year's Emmy Awards have been officially released and, boy, are there some goodies on the list!
The biggest television awards show of the year, which will take place on August 25, is going to be packed to the gills with our fave celebs. With a few exceptions, voters this year were fair and chose nominees who truly deserve to be recognized for their talent.
Leading the pack was HBO's Game of Thrones, which racked up an astounding 19 nominations, including those for Best Drama Series, Best Supporting Actor (Peter Dinklage), and Best Supporting Actress (Lena Headey). At its heels were shows like Orange Is the New Black, Modern Family, and Downton Abbey. And let's not forget our fave reality competition shows -- The Voice is taking it this year, if you ask me.
See the complete list here and let us know if you think they left anyone out.
As a fan of Orange Is the New Black, I'm thrilled and a little surprised, I admit, to see the show received 12 nominations, including one for Best Comedy. I'm also going to have an impossible time rooting for any one actress from the series, since three of my favorites -- Natasha Lyon, Laverne Cox, AND Uzo Aduba -- are nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.
Love that House of Cards received 13 nominations and that Bryan Cranston will (hopefully) receive the Emmy he deserves for Best Actor on Breaking Bad. But, then again, I really want to see Jon Hamm finally nab one for Mad Men. So yeah, I'm torn here.
Also, former Friends star Matt LeBlanc was excellent in the show Episodes, but considering how I thought I was one of 12 people in America who actually watched the show, I'm definitely shocked -- in a good way -- to see his name on this list.
And now for the people overlooked by Emmy. Matthew Rhys from The Americans -- are you kidding me? The man effortlessly slips into several spy characters throughout the course of one episode -- why has he been snubbed? Same goes for Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany. I understand that it isn't the most popular show out there, but anyone who has seen it knows the woman gives one heck of a performance and makes you forget she isn't actually four different actresses.
