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.
