"Game of Thrones" sure looks like it will rule on Emmy Awards night, having reaped the most nominations – 19, which is three more than it earned last year. But let's remember that "Game of Thrones" only seized two Emmy crowns in 2013 and they were both in crafts categories: Makeup and Visual Effects. The only major Emmy Award it has ever won was a trophy for Best Supporting Actor bagged by Peter Dinklage in 2011 for the first season.

bryan cranston breaking bad matthew mcconaughey true detective entertainment news

2014 has been a very good year for Bryan Cranston and Matthew McConaughey. Cranston won a Tony award this summer (Best Actor, "All the Way") while McConaughey scored an Oscar win in March (Best Actor, "Dallas Buyers Club"). And now both just netted Emmy nominations as Best Drama Actor. (To see the complete list of Emmy nominees, click here.)

It's up to the Emmys, then, to determine which of these leading men is the really the best actor. For Cranston, today's nod for "Breaking Bad" marks his sixth nomination for playing meth kingpin Walter White. And McConaughey is nominated for his very first Emmy thanks to his role as troubled detective Rust Cohle on freshman series "True Detective."

Matt Bomer Sexy The Normal Heart Emmys Emmy nominations TV Entertainment News

As we predicted, heartthrob Matt Bomer just received his first career Emmy nomination for "The Normal Heart" in the Movie/Mini Supporting Actor category. But that was the easy part.

The hard part for Bomer will be to convince the straight, middle-aged members of the TV academy that he deserves to win. See, Bomer faces an uphill climb at the Emmys because he possesses three qualities -- he's sexy, he's successful and he's rich -- that could make Emmy voters jealous and want to scream, "Bomer already has everything going for him, but he can't have this trophy!"
