The 2014 Emmy Nominations were announced this morning, and they were about as surprising/disappointing as I expected.  We’re in the Golden Age of Television™, but no one seems to tell the Emmys.  Yes, True Detective and Fargo got some love, but so did the awful awards-bait The Normal Heart, which picked up four out of six nominations for Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie.  Then there are the usual suspects: Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, etc.  Among tge acting nominations, I would say I’m pleasantly surprised about Andre Braugher getting attention for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and shocked that Kate Mara picked up an Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series nomination when really her CGI stunt double deserves all the credit.

Hit the jump to check out the full list of the major Emmy nominations.  The Emmy Awards will air live on NBC, Monday, August 25th at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT.

    The lack of Tatiana Maslany is the perfect combination of disappointing, heartbreaking and disturbing. Shame on you Emmys!

    Yuck how did gervais get a nom? Really do Americans love him that much? Derek was awful

  • Alvaro Talavera

    So, Big Bang Theory or Modern Family have been nominated instead of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
    Yeah, sure.

  • Stan

    The Emmy Rossum snub is criminal. Has anyone watched season 4 of Shameless. Wow did she steal every scene. Her story arc was superb. Come on academy.

  • Dip

    The lack of nominations for The Americans and Tatiana Maslany disturbs me
    Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys really deserved a nomination

    BUT, that Best Actor in a Drama Series? g’luck to them, what a tough race!
    while i really wanna see McConaughey win, Cranston should get it

  • Ron

    Finally, a nomination for Treme. FX seemed mostly shut out except for the mini-series categories. I guess no love for Justified, The Americans, or Archer. Also, happy for

    Andre Breaugher and Fred Armisen for their nominations.
    But ignoring Community and Parks and Rec again is criminal.

  • Dan

    the lack of an acting nomination for Silicon Valley is absurd

    I just hope McConaughey and Harrelson don’t split the votes so that neither of them wins. But Cranston winning is also fine I guess.

  • saturday_night_hype

    Give Breaking Bad and Silicon Valley all the awards. Give Allison Tolman all the awards. GO BACK IN TIME AND REMEMBER TO NOMINATE CHRISTOPHER EVAN WELCH YOU FASCISTS. Hell yes.

    Ridiculous ignoring Jack Huston in Boardwalk Empire, his performance as Richard Harrow is literally some of the best acting ever. And while Lena Headey is awesome as Cersei, Maisie Williams imo is by far the best actress in the show and her character had a great year.

  • Ore

    Props to sillicon valley, fargo is far better than true detective

    No Vera Farmiga for Bates Motel? Boo….

  • JediGrandmaster

    I hope true detective dinklage and veep win awards in their respective categories

  • Jon Hamm

    Christina Hendricks gets the nod over Elisabeth Moss? Duh hell?

    • -

      They’re in different categories Moss is usually in the lead category. Although it is some bullshit that she didn’t get a nomination but Danes did, I love Danes but she didn’t do much in Homeland last season, although I’d say that’s more the writers’ fault than hers because that season was dire.

  • -

    I dunno how House of Cards got a nomination, it’s good but it doesn’t begin to compare to Hannibal or The Americans, or Boardwalk Empire for that matter.
    Anyway I hope True Detective, McConaughey and Dinklage win.

  • Jack Dennis

    silicon valley all the way! how did thomas middleditch and zach woods not get nominated?

  • http://www.discogs.com/ AdamShitwood

    Orange Is The New Black is a comedy???? That’s news to me. The only funny thing in this past season was when that black chick got run over in the last episode.

  • Strong Enough

    no orphan black? lmao

  • Charlie Maib

    How is True Detective a series, but American Horror Story a mini series? I is cornfused.

    • Ceaser

      Because HBO decided to be ballsy. They are both anthology series, along with Fargo, so they are considered as miniseries, because they only follow certain characters and story lines for a limited amount of time. However, they can also count as Dramas, but there are always so many shows competing for six nominations, it is easier to get a nomination and a win in the miniseries category (especially now that they split miniseries and tv movies). HBO decided that True Detective is so good, that they decided to be ballsy put it in the Drama category, and take on Breaking Bad. But the AMC votes will split between Breaking Bad and Mad men, and HBO votes will split between Game of Thrones and True Detective, that Dowton Abby or House of Cards will win.

        Good answer!
