2014 Emmy Nominations: ‘Game of Thrones’ Leads With 19 Total Nominations
The 2014 Emmy nominations have arrived. The nominations were announced early this morning by Mindy Kaling and Carson Daly in Los Angeles. It was a big day for 'Game of Thrones' as the HBO series nabbed its most nominations yet, leading the way with a total of 19. 'Fargo' followed closely behind with 18, 'American Horror Story: Coven' with 17 and the final season of 'Breaking Bad' with 16 (HBO's 'True Detective' scored 12 nominations with both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson nominated for Best Actor). Snubs include 'Sons of Anarchy' (which was only nominated for an original song) and 'Orphan Black' star Tatiana Maslany, who many thought would get an acting nomination for her performance. Andy Samberg and his Fox comedy 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' both missed out on nominations despite winning both Best Actor and Best Television Series - Comedy at the Golden Globes.
Check out the major nominations below. What do you think? What got snubbed? What are you happy for? You can check out the rest of the nominations right here and watch the awards live on August 25 at 8pm on NBC.
