Your 63rd Primetime Emmy Nominees

Thursday, July 14 by

Joshua Jackson and Melissa McCarthy woke at the ass-crack of dawn to announce the 63rd Primetime Emmy nominees. Mildred Pierce leads with 21 nominations, while Mad Men will face off against Dexter, Friday Night Lights, and Game Of Thrones in the Best Drama category while Jon Hamm goes against Steve Buscemi, Hugh Laurie and Timothy Olyphant.

And Louis C.K. got nominated!! Which is awesome. I expected a snub. Usually when Jon Hamm plays a middle-aged man sad about where his life ended up, Emmy rushes to him with a tissue, but Louis C.K.’s raw and unflinching worldview normally gets pepper-sprayed. This is great news for television comedy even though Community got snubbed again.

Here’s a list of nominees who will knife fight one another at the Ivy for television’s biggest honor.
