65th Primetime Emmy Awards Nominations (Full List)

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has revealed its nominations for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards.


FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum is at the top of the heap with 17 nominations, closely followed by HBO’s Game of Thrones with 16.


So who got SNUBBED?  I am pretty much DISAPPOINTED that Tatiana Maslany, the actress who plays not one but SEVEN different roles on one of the must-watch shows this year, BBC America’s Orphan Black, got ignored by the Academy. I mean, c’mon, she should have been nominated SEVEN freaking times!


Another snub was AMC’s The Walking Dead, but I guess the Academy does not want to consider this Zombie-drama, a drama, not even after showing one of the most shocking and dramatic deaths in television history.


Ok let’s get to it.  Here is the full list of nominees.  The 65th Prime time Emmy Awards is on 22 September 2013.

  1. Oh, snubbing has seemingly become a trend in awards show these days. Let’s just hope Tatiana Maslany will redeem the respect she deserves at The Golden Globes. Anyway, though what I really want is for GAME OF THRONES to rule the drama category, my guts keep telling me that HOMELAND will own the category. As for the comedy category, I’m still torn between MODERN FAMILY and THE BIG BANG THEORY. But since I’m a huge fan of both, I don’t really mind if either win. What do you think?

    1. I think they should go with Breaking Bad simply because it’s their final season and I think it’s one of THE best shows on the planet and I am sad that it’s ending after five seasons. I am hoping for a Breaking Bad-sweep. 🙂
