“And the Emmy goes to…”
The actual winners of the 2013 Primetime Emmys won’t be announced until the ceremony airs Sunday, September 22 on CBS, but the nominees were announced bright and early Thursday morning.
Heavy hitters like “Mad Men,” “Homeland,” “Modern Family” and the departing “30 Rock” scored a slew of nominations each, but there were a number of surprises as well.
Though Critics Choice “Best Actress” award winner Tatiana Maslany was snubbed for her work in BBC America's “Orphan Black,” in which she plays a number of different clones, it was great to see “Scandal” star Kerry Washington and Vera Farmiga (“Bates Motel”) score nominations for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.”
With “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart taking the summer off to direct a film, maybe Emmy voters will forget about him just long enough for Stephen Colbert or Jimmy Fallon to steal the statue from his good friend after ten consecutive wins in the “Variety Show” category.
Here are the nominees in some of the major categories:
