Emmy Nominations Announced!

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences on Thursday announced the nominees for the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards. At first glance, the list seems to stock largely the same series as last year, but there are some significant newcomers.

In the Best Series, Drama category, HBO newcomers "Game of Thrones" and "Boardwalk Empire" enter the running as strong contenders. On the comedy side, fan and critical favorite "Parks and Recreation" has joined the fray, alongside fellow NBC shows "The Office" and "30 Rock."

Newcomers to the Outstanding Actress in a Comedy are "Mike & Molly" star Melissa McCarthy, who helped present the nominations and Laura Linney of Showtime's "The Big C."

In the actor categories, Jon Hamm looks to win his first Outstanding Actor in a Drama, and is buoyed by the fact that three-time winner Bryan Cranston, of "Breaking Bad," was not nominated thanks to his show's timing. Louis CK, of the eponymous comedy, "Louie," got a nod in the Outstanding Actor in a Comedy category.

Something to note: "Conan" was nominated for an Emmy, but Jay Leno's "The Tonight Show" was not.

Justin Timberlake and Zach Galifianakis landed nominations for their hosting jobs of "Saturday Night Live," while three "Glee" guest stars -- Gwyneth Paltrow, Kristen Chenowith and Dot Marie Jones -- got nods. >>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING
