The 65th Emmy Awards Nominations have been announced, and Netflix’s House of Cards has made history.  The original series marks the first TV show released exclusively online to land top honors, as the David Fincher-produced series nabbed 9 nominations including Best Drama Series, Best Actor (Kevin Spacey), Best Actress (Robin Wright), and Best Director for Fincher—actor Cory Stoll’s excellent work, though, was not recognized.  American Horror Story once again nabbed the most nominations with 17, though the only major nods were for Best Miniseries and Lead Actress in a Miniseries for Jessica Lange.  Game of Thrones followed with 16 nods overall.

House of Cards appears to have knocked Boardwalk Empire out of the Best Drama Series category, as the latter failed to secure a nod.  FX’s The Americans was surprisingly absent as well, and other surprises include New Girl being completely shut out, Mad Men failing to land any writing or directing nominations, Vera Farmiga getting a Best Actress nomination for Bates Motel, and Elizabeth Moss being double nominated for Mad Men and Top of the Lake.  Hit the jump for the list of major nominations.

Here’s the list of major Emmy nominations.  Be sure to offer up your comments below!

    It says that American Horror Story took 17 nominations, but I hardly see it mentioned in the full list?

  • Dip

    No love for Parks and Recreation?

    • PolakNarodowiec

      Fuck Emmy… PaR is the best comedy show!

  • Brennan Umsted

    I want to have a complaint about no nod for Zooey for New Girl but lead actress in a comedy is one stacked field

  • -

    BOBBY CANNAVALE, FUCK YEAH!
    a-hem. Anyway, I hope he wins. I think Boardwalk and The Americans were both far superior to House of Cards and Homeland, it’s a shame they weren’t nominated. And I’m surprised there were no Mad Men nods for writing, seeing as it usually takes up at least two slots per year (it took up 4 out of 5 for one season). ‘In Care of’ seemed especially deserving, but maybe that was past the deadline or something. Out of these, my dream picks would be (* for those I think probably will win):
    Best Drama – Breaking Bad*
    Best Actor – Jon Hamm
    Best Actress – Claire Danes*
    Best Supporting Actor – Bobby Cannavale
    Best Supporting Actress – erm, Emilia Clarke, I guess. (*cough* Michelle Fairley)

  • Harriet

    No Michelle Fairley or Nikolaj Coster? They were FANTASTIC this season. Peter and Emilia were great but I honestly would have chosen Michelle or Nikolaj to get nominated for GoT this year. Especially Michelle’s incredible performance in the 9th episode.

    • Nomis1700

      It’s fucking ridiculous that Fairley didn’t got nominated! She was absolutely amazing, I really don’t understand this shit.

    • AManWithAKilt

      Agreed. I feel like they just kinda went with crowd favorites in Emilia and Peter. They’re both great in their roles but this wasn’t a big season for them. Michelle Nikolaj definitely deserved a nomination (and a win). Nice to see Dianna Rigg get a nom, though.

  • TotesMcGotes

    No Tatiana Maslany from Orphan Black? She is mind-blowing in that. If you haven’t seen it yet,you should. The show is pretty good,but she is incredible.

  • LL

    Big Bang and Girls gets nominated for best comedy but no Arrested Development?

  • Demi Tod

    Bobby Cannavale stand up!!!

  • The Exploiter

    Breaking Bad deserves a full sweep.

  • Herb Wight

    Glad to see Vera Farmiga get a nom for Bates Motel. She is wonderful in that role. Would have liked to see Will Arnett get some love as Job, though. He was the best part of Arrested Development’s long-awaited return.

    *Hello darkness, my old friend…*

  • Julio Navas

    So… Big Bang Theory gets nominated por Outstangind Comedy and Arrested Development Doesn´t? What is wrong with this world. What´s next? Kaley Cuoco over Jessica Walter for best actress in a comedy.

  • JK1193

    No noms for Richard Madden and Michelle Fairley for the Red Wedding? Absurdity.

  • Greyson

    Big Bang Theory, Glee and Ryan Seacrest should never be in the same sentence as award… Unless Ryan is giving one to someone.

    No Walking Dead????

  • MGS

    I thought Mads Mikkelsen was a given for Hannibal… or does the “midseason” count for next year?

    No love for Justified???? Seriously? That’s just wrong. Goggins and Olyphant deserve some more respect for their performances, in addition to the writers.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Agreed.

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    How does American Horror Story count as a miniseries? And, the Americans was not absent. Margo Martindale was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress. Did you even actually read the nominations, Adam? Or just have some intern give you the bullet points?
