The men are still mad, breaking is still bad – and announcer Jimmy Kimmel isn’t ashamed to let you see him in his pajamas. So it went as the 64th annual Primetime Emmy nominations were revealed early Thursday morning.
When the dust settled, not only was Kimmel himself nominated for hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live, but Mad Men and American Horror Story led the pack – with 17 nominations each.
The race is also on between top dramatic series lead actor contenders Jon Hamm, for Mad Men, and Bryan Cranston, for Breaking Bad – while both of their shows are also in the running for best dramatic series, along with Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones and Homeland.
The other actor nominees are Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey); Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire); Michael C. Hall (Dexter); and Damian Lewis (Homeland).
