Yahoo is sharing some data related to Emmy-nominated television shows.

"If winners were predicted by Yahoo searches, [breaking bad] would be this year's Outstanding Drama Series as it's the highest searched show this month," a Yahoo spokesperson tells WebProNews. "Coming up next is [game of thrones], which is searched for nearly 6x more than [house of cards], [homeland], [mad men] and lastly, [the newsroom]."

Not a lot of change there. Yahoo told us back in July that Breaking Bad was the most-searched for show from the Outstanding Drama Series category.

"Last year's Best Actor in a Drama, [damian lewis], trails last in Yahoo searches among other nominees, with [bryan cranston], [kevin spacey] and [jon hamm] leading," the spokesperson says. "The leading lady for Best Actress on Yahoo searches this month is [kerry washington], her first time nominated for an Emmy, followed by [claire danes], [michelle dockery] and [robin wright]."

Some other interesting Emmy-related stats from Yahoo:

  • 68% of Emmys searches come from females in the past week.
  • Top searched Emmy nominated actors for comedy, ranked in order this month on Yahoo are: [alec baldwin], [jim parsons], [jason bateman], [louis ck], [don cheadle], [matt leblanc]. [alec baldwin] is spiking 283% this month on Yahoo.
  • If Outstanding Comedy were won by number of Yahoo searches, [big bang theory] would be the winner as the top searched comedy. Ranked in order, other top searches include [modern family], [30 rock], [louie], [girls hbo] and [veep]
  • Top searched Emmy nominated actresses for comedy, ranked in order this month on Yahoo are: [amy poehler], [tina fey], [julia louis-dreyfus], [laura dern], [lena dunham], [edie falco]. [amy poehler] is spiking 330% this month on Yahoo
  • Many of us are wondering how Netflix shows will perform in the Emmys this year, as simply being part of the race is something that has never happened before for online-only shows. Netflix shows have received a total of fourteen nominations, and House of Cards has already won two awards for casting and cinematography.

    Yahoo shares these stats about Netflix shows:

  • [netflix new releases], [house of cards 2013] and [house of cards season 2 release date] are spiking off the charts this month on Yahoo
  • [robin wright] is spiking 70% this week on Yahoo
  • Top Netflix original shows ranked in order this month on Yahoo are: [orange is the new black], [house of cards], [arrested development] and [hemlock grove]
  • Most Netflix originals - [house of cards], [arrested development] and [hemlock grove] are preferred by men, however [orange is the new black] is preferred by women
  • [orange is the new black] searched for 58% of the time time by women this month on Yahoo
  • [hemlock grove] searched for 54% of the time by men this month on Yahoo
  • [house of cards] searched for 63% of the time by men this month on Yahoo
  • [arrested development] searched for 61% of the time by men this month on Yahoo
  • Out of all of these shows, Orange is the New Black is the only one not up for any Emmys this year. It just came out too late. Next year, look out.

    As previously reported, Yahoo has actually partnered with the Emmys this year, and will be live streaming from the red carpet, as well as backstage and the post-party Governor's Ball on Sunday.
