2014 Emmy Nominations!


It's that time again! The nominations for the 66th Emmys Awards are in!

While a lot of the categories are status quo for the most part (Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey), there are some surprises peaking in there.

True Detective scores nominations for series (for drama series not miniseries) and both of its stars gained lead actor nominations. Netflix picked up numerous nominations for Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, and even a lead actor in a comedy nomination for Ricky Gervais for his show Derek.

Let's also take a moment to celebrate the awesomeness of Kate McKinnon getting nominated for SNL.

This might be a tough year for Emmy voters as there have been some spectacular shows and performances this year.

Click the Rawr for the nominations and watch the Seth Meyers hosted Emmys on Monday, August 25 on NBC!
