2012 Emmy Nominations-Who’s Leading the Pack?

2012-emmy-nominations

Emmy nominations are out and there are a lot of surprises, records, and potential snubs in the mix.

Leading the pack is critic and fan favorite, AMC’s Mad Men. The drama tied FX’s spooky miniseries American Horror Story with 17 nominations. Mad Men has four wins under their belt, so this year will give them a record with five wins in the “Best Drama” category.

Laughter also reigned supreme with ABC’s Modern Family and NBC’s Saturday Night Live which won everyone over with their humor, getting 14 nominations each. Modern Family has been the winner two years in a row, so they’re the front runner to win over newcomer Girl and fan darling, The Big Bang Theory.

When it comes to networks as a whole, HBO kicked butt with 81 nominations total. Pretty good for a channel people have to pay to watch. CBS, thanks to The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, got 60. Rounding out the top three is PBS with 58. Sesame Street? Just kidding, that’s Daytime Emmy territory.

Somewhat of a surprise was the absence of Jay Leno, David Letterman, and Conan in the “Variety, Comedy or Musical Series” category. Leno and Letterman are old, but Conan is hip. The political duo Colbert and Stewart from Comedy Central, along with a pair of Jimmys’ and SNL show some shift in the late night game.

It’ll be an interesting night when the Emmy’s air on September 23rd from Nokia Theatre in downtown LA hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

About sunnymenagerie

Socially awkward in most situations most 25 years olds would call easy, that’s me. TV is my soul mate, Music is my mistress and writing is my best friend. Without those three things, I’d be in an insane asylum calling myself Rosa Parks, refusing to sit in the back of the so called bus. I know more about pop culture and celebrities than I do about my family history, and I’d like to keep it that way. Words I live by: We´re all tiny books in one big compilation called life. Some of us will wait for what seems like forever for our climactic part to come. Others will have a romance novel their entire life. Or maybe one filled with just adventure. Or one that is a poetic tragedy. Then, there are those that will have best sellers. You know, the ones that everyone wants to read and base their versions on? Don´t forget the little paperbacks sold at the carwash that only a select few will ever lay eyes on. We´re all born with the power to either take what was written for us or choose our own adventures.
