Emmy Awards

HBO, Game of Thrones Lead 2015 Emmy Nominations

The nominations for the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards were announced this morning and contain the usual assortment of familiar faces, pleasant surprises, and gross oversights.

HBO dominated the nominations with a staggering count of 126, which of course includes its premier drama series Game of Thrones, but the big surprise is arguably Netflix’s impressive showing, as the streaming service garnered an impressive 34 nominations, including well-deserved Lead Actor and Supporting Actor nods for Kyle Chandler and Ben Mendelsohn in Bloodline, respectively.

With AMC’s awards-powerhouse drama Breaking Bad out of the race this year, it was widely expected that sister show Mad Men would generate some much-deserved attention, especially considering it just wrapped up its final season this spring and it did not disappoint. The show was nominated for Outstanding Drama Series and Jon Hamm and Elizabeth Moss both snagged nominations for Lead Actor and Lead Actress, respectively.

As always, there were some perplexing shutouts, including the absence of FX’s highly-regarded Drama series The Americans, which only garnered one nomination for Margo Martindale’s excellent guest-starring role. Other notable snubs include Vincent D’Onofrio’s well-received turn as the villainous Kingpin in Netflix’s Daredevil series and Gina Rodriguez’s Golden Globe-winning work on Jane The Virgin.
