61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards This Weekend!
Sunday marks the 61st Primetime broadcast of the Emmy Awards! Did any of your favorite shows get nominated? Don’t you hate it when you always seem to watch two or three of the nominees, but they NEVER win? Well let’s hope that’s not the case this year!
There will be 28 awards given out during the ceremony, ranging from recognition of acting, directing, writing, costumes, and more. HBO leads the board (basically just like every year) with 99 nominations, which is the most for any network. (99?! Seriously?!)
As for individual shows, though, NBC’s 30 Rock leads the way with 22 nominations. It is the first time a comedy series has the most nominations out of any other show. I couldn’t care less about Alec Baldwin but apparently other people see something that I don’t…
Mad Men is the front-runner in the Drama category with 16 nominations. If you haven’t watched this show already, you should. AMC, Mad Men’s network, also scores with a nomination for Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad. This is his second nomination in two years (he won last year).
For a full list of nominees, check out the official Emmys page, and tune in this Sunday, September 20 (8/7c), to find out the winners!
