Emmy nominations: The complete list
The Television Academy is announcing nominees for the 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards on Thursday morning.
Unlike in years past, the ramp-up for the kudos kicks off at the forgiving hour of 8:30 a.m. PT -; not 5:30 a.m. -; with Orange Is the New Black star and Emmy winner Uzo Aduba and So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley on hand to announce the contenders in the biggest categories.
Several more changes hit the Emmys this year, most notably the default categorization of comedies as half-hours and dramas as hour-longs. The move, an acknowledgement of the surging volume of eligible nominees, also prompted the Academy to open up the main drama and comedy races to seven nominees. (The new labeling ruffled few feathers, though Netflix was notably denied in its petition to put hour-long Orange Is The New Black in the comedy race.)
There's a big hole to fill with this year's Emmys, most notably in the absence of last year's best drama Breaking Bad. The AMC series also nabbed three of the top acting kudos in its final years of eligibility, and many eyes will be on old network neighbor Mad Men to see if it can see a resurgence in its own final year at the Emmys -; having last won in 2011.
This year's kudos, the 67th annual, will air live on Sept. 20. The Fox telecast is being hosted by Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg, again taping at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. Many of the nominees, most notably those in the guest actor and actress races, will be honored the week prior at the Sept. 12 Creative Arts Emmys.
