Emmy Nominations 2012: Mad Men and American Horror Story Receive 17 Nods
[ Life]

Emmy nominations 2012: If you’re a fan of both AMC’s “Mad Men” and FX’s creepy “American Horror Story”, you should be pretty happy right about now. Both programs received a staggering 17 nominations a piece, which gives them a considerable leg up on the competition. And while I’m pretty buzzed that “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones” received nods in the Outstanding Drama Series category, I’m extremely delighted that “Downton Abbey” is getting the recognition is rightfully deserves. As someone who owns every single Steven Seagal movie known to mankind, typing those words seems very strange and foreign.

On the comedy front, Zooey Deschanel received a Lead Actress in a Comedy Series nod for her turn in the unusually funny sitcom “New Girl”, while Emmy winner Jim Parsons once again enjoyed a nomination for his role as Sheldon Cooper in the Chuck Lorre hit “The Big Bang Theory”. Although I’d love to see him take home another trophy, I’m kind of jazzed that Louis C.K. is up for the same award for “Louie”. If you haven’t seen the stand-up comedian’s FX show, then you’re seriously missing out on something genuinely hilarious.

If you’re curious to see who wins and who loses, you can tune into the 2012 Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 23 on ABC. Make sure you’re hope around 8PM, otherwise you’re probably going to miss out. Television aficionados won’t miss the televised ceremony for anything.
