American Horror Story

The nominations for this year’s Emmy Awards are in and FX’s American Horror Story leads the pack with a WHOPPING 17 nominations – and let’s face it, AHS really is brilliant, I’m not surprised about the sheer number of noms.

Elsewhere, Netflix has experienced a major breakthrough with this years nominations as the online streaming giant has scored multiple nominations for its high profile original shows.

American Horror Story: Asylum scored the most nominations at this afternoon’s ceremony with a huge 17 nods. Game of Thrones came in second place with 16 nominations and Netflix original series, House of Cards received nine.

Netflix has scored nominations for House of Cards and Arrested Development – the latter of which received three nods. Hemlock Grove’s first season received a pair of Creative Arts nominations. The networks may have struggled on the drama side of things this year, but Comedy once again troops on through.


Elsewhere, popular Saturday evening show Saturday Night Live had 15 nods whilst British based period drama, Downton Abbey received 12 nominations for PBS. Mad Men and Modern Family followed with 12 nominations each, also.

The Big Bang Theory scored well on the comedy side with 8 nominations, as did How I Met Your Mother which had 4 nods. Glee also received 4.
