Modern Family, Downton Abbey, Mad Men and American Horror Story Lead the Emmy Nominations

This morning the usual suspects lead the Emmy nominations with last year’s big winners Mad Men and Modern Family out in front. Other big multiple nominees were Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Game Change, Homeland, and American Horror Story. There were some huge snubs including Parks and Recreation and The Good Wife missing out on series nominations… I’ll have a full reaction later today as I have to head off to an audition.
