I am working on a blog item about records, stats, interesting trivia, etc. regarding today’s Emmy nominations.
Please respond ASAP if you have something good that should be added.July 16, 2015 at 10:25 am #353689
Tina Fey extends lead as most nominated Actress with 36 nominations.July 16, 2015 at 10:26 am #353690
None of the big 7 Drama winners will be there to defend its title on Emmy night.July 16, 2015 at 10:27 am #353691
Mad Men is now the fourth most nominated show in Emmy history.July 16, 2015 at 10:35 am #353692
After receiving 4 this year, Amy Poehler now has 22 Emmy nominations (20 @ the Primetime Emmys) without winning. Jon Hamm now has 16 nods w/o winning.
Jon Hamm now ties the record at 8 (w/ Peter Falk, Raymond Burr, and Dennis Franz) for most nominations in the Drama Lead Actor category.
I wonder what the record for most years between series nominations is. Parks and Rec was last nominated for a season that ran in the 2010-2011 TV season…July 16, 2015 at 10:37 am #353693
Has Silicon Valley set a record for two Series nods and zero acting nods?July 16, 2015 at 10:42 am #353694
Top 3 Writing Drama noms: 21 Sopranos, 16 Hill Street Blues, 15 Mad Men (more than any Comedy Series).
Hamm ties for most Drama Actor noms.July 16, 2015 at 10:45 am #353695
Hector Ramirez extends his lead for most nominations received by an individual with 74. Saturday Night LIVE extends its record for most nominated program with 193 nominations.July 16, 2015 at 10:46 am #353696
Kathy Bates now holds the record for most Movie/Mini Supporting Actress nominations with 6.
Michael J. Fox now holds the record for most Drama Guest Actor nominations with 6.July 16, 2015 at 10:55 am #353697
Jonathan Banks previously held the record as the only person nominated for Drama Supporting Actor in 2 different series (Wiseguy, Breaking Bad). He expands that record to 3 different series with Better Call Saul, though he’s playing the same character from Breaking Bad.July 16, 2015 at 11:01 am #353698
Also you can add Julianna Marguiles and Jim Parsons to the list of people snubbed right after winning.July 16, 2015 at 12:22 pm #353699
Ugh, just imagine if Margulies was snubbed in favor of Moss last season instead. Moss would’ve gotten to submit The Strategy, one of her best tapes ever.
Now she has…Time and Life or Lost Horizon, which are passable at best as Lead tapes, though she is great as always in them.July 16, 2015 at 12:42 pm #353700
Tina Fey extends lead as most nominated Actress with 36 nominations.
According to IMDB, Fey had 34 previous nominations. Despite what the Emmy website says today (giving her 3 nods for this year), that will actually be 5 more when they update (one for producing ‘UKS’ and one for hosting Golden Globes). That makes her total 39, correct?July 16, 2015 at 12:49 pm #353701
Is 24 nominations a new record in the Drama Series race? The most nominations I can remember is 23 (Six Feet Under, 2002).July 16, 2015 at 12:51 pm #353702
I believe there is no other show with 3 writing noms and 0 Series noms besides Episodes, which now has 4.
The other Comedies with 4 writing noms without a Series win are similarly cable shows centered around one dude – Larry, Louie.
