-Emmy Nominations-

Quick note about the nominations for the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations which were announced this morning (US time). The nominations were supposed to be announced by actors Nick Offerman and Kerry Washington, but due to poor weather on the East Coast, Offerman was unable to fly there in time, so Jimmy Kimmel (who will host the main event in September) stepped in. Kimmel jokingly said that Offerman wasn't able to come because "he had travel issues, which usually means drugs".

and for shorter easier list of the main categories go here.

I tried to find a video of the nomination event, but couldn't find even a clip, so you'll just have to imagine it, Kimmel supposedly wore pyjamas and pretented just to have woken. Or maybe he really did just wake up. Though the news that Kimmel would be present were released yesterday so it was all very planned.
I found a clip after all, enjoy:

Then to the actual nominations. They all seem very reasonable, but I as usual, I feel that the comedy categories are too small, I can think of atleast 10 shows that should be nominated. Most notably Parks & Recreation, New Girl and Cougar Town. Amy Phoeler did get nominated for her acting and writing though.

I'm not going to go through all the categories since there are dozens of them if you count the Creative Arts Emmy's too, such as make-up and costume design (Creative Emmys will be given out Spetember 15th, a week before the main event). 

Actually I'm not going to go through any of the categories, the grill is warming up and I'm hungry, so look them up by yourself from the links provided above.

There is a lot of extra info easily accesible at the Official Emmy website. Even a nicer view of all the nominees if you are too bored to go thorugh the PDF.
