The Emmy nominations are out this morning and as you've read elsewhere on HitFix, there were a number of surprises, both pleasant and unpleasant. “True Detective” walked away with 12 nominations and “Game of Thrones” picked up 19. For its part, FX series “Fargo” garnered 18.
What you will find gathered below are not reactions nor responses nor analyses, but rather a gallery of some of shows/miniseries/movies/etc. which received multiple nominations. You will find the three aforementioned series in it, as well as shows like “Sherlock,” “House of Cards,” “Modern Family,” and more.
Check it out, see just who is competing against whom, and which series are competing against themselves. For instance, “Fargo” has no fewer than three nominations in its editing category,” “The Normal Heart” has four of the six nominations in the Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie category. Louis C.K. picked up acting, writing, and directing nominations for “Louie,” which is also nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series.
So, without further ado, take a gander, and tell us what you think. Will one of the four “Normal Heart” supporting actors walk away with the award, or are they going to split the vote?
The Emmy Awards will take place on August 25th, airing on NBC.
