With 14 Emmy nominations, the once little mail order provider turned online streaming network, Netflix, has officially made it to the big leagues. Its original productions of “House of Cards” and “Arrested Development” are up against top cable shows including “Game of Thrones” and “The Newsroom” from HBO and “House of Lies” from Showtime.
The nominees have been announced and Neil Patrick Harris is set to host the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 22nd at 8/7 central on CBS, that leaves just one question left, who will win? Vote in the polls below for your favorite TV shows.
The most Emmy nominations, 17, went to “American Horror Story: Asylum.” Close behind was “Game of Thrones” with 16 nods, while “Saturday Night Live” and the Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” earned 15 nominations each.
The nomination, one of nine nods earned by the political thriller, is a marker in the unfolding revolution in how we get and watch video entertainment.
Star of “How I Met Your Mother,” Neil Patrick Harris, will host the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards which will air live on CBS, the network announced Wednesday.
The glamorous night saw ‘Modern Family’ win practically everything, Jon Stewart keep his winning streak alive and Josh Groban sing One Direction’s “You Don’t Know You’re Beautiful” in tribute to Kimmel.
The Emmy Awards refused to play it predictably Sunday, with awards going to Damian Lewis and Claire Danes of “Homeland” and Jon Cryer of “Two and a Half Men” and Jimmy Kimmel proving a game but uneven host.
Other leading nominees include the elegant British-born soap opera “Downton Abbey,” which earned 16 bids, and two miniseries, “Hatfields & McCoys,” with 16, and “Hemingway & Gellhorn” with 15.
The nominees for the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards were announced in California on Thursday morning.
