The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards is set to air on Monday night, Aug. 25. The last time the awards were held on Monday was in 1976. The award ceremony was shifted from Sunday to Monday because NBC wanted to avoid scheduling conflict with NFL Sunday Night Football, according to reports.
Actor Matthew McConaughey accepts the award for Best Actor in a Drama Series for "True Detective" at the 4th Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California June 19, 2014.
HBO's "Game of Thrones" is leading the pack with 19 nominations. AMC's cult series "Breaking Bad," which wrapped-up last year, is still capable of breaking its competitors' hearts. It has received 16 nominations, including for the show in the outstanding drama series category. Bryan Cranston still looks good to bag his fourth Emmy for his role of Walter White and Heisenberg in "Breaking Bad."
In the mini-series category, FX's new anthology series "Fargo" has earned 18 nominations, while FX's horror anthology series "American Horror Story" Season 3 "Coven" has scored 17 nominations. Martin Freeman has been nominated in the outstanding actor in a miniseries or movie category for "Fargo." The actor will have to beat his "Sherlock" co-actor Benedict Cumberbatch ["Sherlock: His Last Vow"] and his "Fargo" co-actor Billy Bob Thornton to get hold of the Emmy.
In its first Emmy year, Netflix's original drama-comedy "Orange is the New Black" has snagged 12 nominations. It will have to beat CBS' hugely popular comedy "The Big Bang Theory" to get hold of the outstanding comedy series award.
"Mad Men" will be wrapping-up next year in spring after airing the final seven episodes of its swansong season. It has scored eight Emmy nominations, including outstanding actor in drama series nomination for Jon Hamm [Don Draper]. It seem unlikely that the actor is going to win again, as he has to beat Matthew McConaughey ["True Detective], who seems to be the favourite to win this year, Cranston, Kevin Spacey ["House of Cards"], Woody Harrelson ["True Detective"] and Jeff Daniels ["The Newsroom"].
