2014 Emmy Award Nominations Announced

The 2014 Emmy Award nominations were announced today and led by HBO’s “Game of Thrones” with 19 total nominations. New show “Fargo” scored 18, followed by “American Horror Story“, “Breaking Bad“, The Normal Heart and not too far down the line “True Detective” with 12. The one show I love and continue to watch, “Hannibal” received zero nominations, but then again, I have never paid too much attention to the Emmys, primarily because people have to nominate themselves, something I’ve never understood.

  • “Game of Thrones” 19
  • “Fargo” 18
  • “American Horror Story: Coven” 17
  • “Breaking Bad” 16
  • “The Normal Heart” 16
  • “Saturday Night Live” 14
  • “House of Cards” 13
  • “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” 12
  • “Downton Abbey” 12
  • “Orange Is the New Black” 12

From a network perspective, leading the pack was HBO, coming in just one nomination shy of a 100 and it wasn’t even a close race with CBS coming in second with 47.

  • HBO 99
  • CBS 47
  • NBC 46
  • FX Networks 45
  • ABC 37
