We return again to the Nokia Theatre for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards – this time on Monday, thanks to the NFL – to find out which shows in the vast landscape of television will be receive the industry’s coveted award. NBC’s new Late Night host Seth Meyers will serving as this year’s host, replacing Neil Patrick Harris from the previous year.
This year Game of Thrones goes into the Emmys as the most nominated show overall with 19, while FX’s new series Fargo comes in a close second with 18 nominations. In comedy, Orange is the New Black tops the list with 12 nominations (2 wins already at the Creative Emmys). Of course, with Louie, Veep and HBO’s new show Silicon Valley in the running, there’s always a chance for an upset – and that goes in either category.
In acting, it’s going to be a heavy battle in both drama and comedy as Breaking Bad’s best goes up against the duos of True Detective and House of Cards, while Louis CK, Don Cheadle, Matt LeBlanc, William H. Macy and Jim Parsons make up the all-star lineup of television’s funny men.
