Primetime Emmy Nominations (with video); Melissa McCarthy’s reaction, Mad Men’s 19 nominations and more!

The 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Award nominees were announced this morning by Mike & Molly star Melissa McCarthy and Fringe star Joshua Jackson.

The HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce received the most nominations overall with 21 including but since it’s still sitting on my TIVO waiting for me to watch it, I can’t say anything about it.


Mad Men
(AMC) got 19 total nominations and will go up against The Good Wife (CBS), Friday Night Lights (NBC), Dexter (Showtime), Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones (both on HBO) in the Outstanding Drama Series.

Big Bang Theory (CBS), Glee (FOX), Modern Family (ABC) and The Office, 30 Rock and Parks and Recreations (NBC) got the nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series.

In both categories, you usually get a “WTF?” but not this year. All of the shows are great but I’m partial to Mad Men, Dexter and Boardwalk Empire in the Drama category. In Comedy, I can’t decide between Modern Family or Parks and Recreations, but any show that kills off a miniature horse, I think has the lead (Parks). Rest in Peace, Lil Sebastian.

In acting nominations, I loved that Mireille Enos (The Killing) and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) in the Drama categories. In  Comedy, I’d love it if Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) won, but with Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly), Martha Plimpton (Raising Hope) and Tina Fey (30 Rock) nominated, who can complain?

For the guys, Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire) might be the one to beat in the Drama category, but come on… Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Light’s), Hugh Laurie (House) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men)? All of them are fantastic, although I would like anyone other than Hugh Laurie to win.

Louie C.K., nominated for lead comedy actor for his work on Louie should win hands down if there’s any justice in the world although Johnny Galecki (Big Bang Theory) who’s never been nominated might not help his cause. Also nominated, Jim Parsons (last year’s winner), Matt LeBlanc (Episodes),  Steve Carrell (The Office) and Alec Baldwin (30 Rock).

On the video below, there’s a great moment that has Melissa McCarthy’s reaction to her nomination. Check it out at the 4 minute mark!

The show airs Sept. 18 on Fox with Glee‘s Jane Lynch as the host.
