- This year was even more clearly visible marasmus of nominations for the miniseries and TV series. Of the six nominees for the Grand Prize three are actually for many serials (Luther, Sherlock and the American Horror Story). American Horror Story became a mini-soap, as the series is an anthology in which each season will tell a single complete story. Therefore, AHS will nominated as a miniseries in the next year, even if it is extended to the third, fourth and so on seasons. From Downton Abbey in this and last year there was a different story. Last year, Downton Abbey went on U.S. television with double episodes, so did not get the required number of episodes - at least six - to go by the rules in the category of "drama". Producers had to file it as miniseries. This year the situation has changed, and Downton Abbey has become a drama that does not negatively affect the number of nominations compared to last year (the number of nominations has increased from 11 to 16), but is likely greatly reduce the number of received statuettes. Sherlock is forced to file a separate series as minifilm because the Academy did not recognize its mini-soap and to drama series Sherlock is not enough. At the same time the Academy recognized the mini-soap for some reason Luther, who successfully nominated in this category for the third consecutive year. It remains unclear why, for example, in categories such as directing and script, which even for the full series will still be accepted for consideration, miniseries and TV movies are a separate nomination.
- Downton Abbey made a serious bid to win among the dramas with 16 nominations. From this chance of Homeland to get award for best drama is sharply decreased. Now, Mad Men will compete with Downton Abbey. In favor of Mad Men talk as much as three nominations in the category "Best Script" against one in Downton Abbey and Homeland. If Mad Men gets fifth consecutive statuette for "Best drama" episode beat the record for most wins in this category. Now the record is shared by Hill Street Blues, LA Law, The West Wing itself Mad Men, series, each with 4 wins. However, neither of which certainty can not speak, but academics are always full of surprises.
- A vivid example of what a few nominations for best script does not guarantee anything - Parks and Recreation. In this series as much as two nominations for the script, but nevertheless it was nominated for "best comedy". Moreover, the six nominees for best comedy nomination for the screenplay is only at Girls. An absurd situation for television, in which the script is considered an important creative component.
- Glee almost completely disappeared from the radars of Emmy - only 3 nominations (and all non-main) to 12 nominations a year ago and 19 two years ago.
- Ratings, apparently, are still important for academics. Of course, they do not guarantee the nomination, but academics, at least pay attention to the ratings on the series, even live TV, not only on the cycle of premium cable. Significantly in the rankings who has passed The Good Wife took off from a nomination for best drama. Instead, popular with viewers essential comedy has not gone unnoticed.
- Of course, the fact that academics has finally noticed the Community, should rejoice. But some of the series seems to go unnoticed. Sons of Anarchy and the Fringe, for example, (the list is not exhaustive) simply do not exist for the TV Academy. But things are changing, as we have seen in Friday Night Lights. It is a pity that the Community may be too late.
- The most unexpected sorrows were the lack of nominations for The Good Wife, for KELSY Grammer (especially given its Emmy-story), for John Slattery (who was still beautiful in Mad Men), Nick Offerman and of course, for leaving the TV House MD with Hugh Laurie.

There are only a few hours before the announcement of nominations for an Emmy this year, so now we have to give the latest estimations in the main, as they are called or the main nominations for best TV series genre (comedy / drama). In the drama competition is now very high, and in comedies is not so simple.
Let's start with prenominated thoughts of dramatic serials. It is clearly seen the trio of leaders - show that one hundred percent will be nominated and who will lead the fight for the victory. This "Boardwalk Empire», «The Good wife» and «Mad Men». Now the situation emerges in the following way, that others in the event of the nomination will have to settle for it. And this group of "others" claims to show the following: «Dexter», «Justified», «Game of Thrones», «Friday night lights», «The killing», «The walking dead» and even «True blood» and «Sons of anarchy» but with much lower odds.
On the comedy show, to be honest, knowing the winner by 95% in advance, the nominees of purely sporting interest - whether one or the other finally nominated? Does he repeat the nomination in the umpteenth time in a row? Will there be surprises among the nominees? And they would like, for example, the nomination «Community» (yes, the chances of a nomination for the show not so much in mind intense competition and limited places in the nomination, here in ten say the show would just entered). First, about "Iron" nominees. This is certainly an early front-runner to win «Modern Family», also a multiple winner in this category show "30 Rock», hit among young people «Glee» and multiple nominee in this category «The Office». But 2 more series, which will be among the nominees to predict more complicated because applicants a good half a dozen - is, first of all, hit rating «The big bang theory», another success in the NBC sitcom «Parks & recreation», hit of TvLand «Hot in Cleveland», a dark horse «Louie» or one of the novelties such as «The Big C» or «Raising hope». Option to re-nomination of the Showtime series «Nurse Jackie» unlikely in view of other bright show, shot in the past TV season.
In the comedy among men and women almost half of all nominees will certainly take a hit of ABC "Modern Family" - Tai Burrell, Eric Stonestreet, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ed O'Neill, and many others even Jesse Tyler Ferguson. The latter two are slightly less likely simply because the nomination and it will be half-filled or even more than one actor show. Others are even "by default, banal" because were nominated last year and Stonestreet even won, so there is no apparent reason or downturns in their game to ignore them this year.
As for the female supporting roles in comedy, the situation is slightly simpler than that of men - winner of an actor award guild (SAG) Betty White ("Hot in Cleveland") is among the nominees without any 'ifs'. Thus, making the trio hundred percent of nominees - Vergara, Bowen, White. Prior to this quartet trio grows just as easy - in the company of three ladies gets a leading current premium, Jane Lynch ("Glee") and being parallel to the winner of last year, but no longer the clear leader in this year.
The remaining two actresses have to guess or predict much problematic, but we can outline the range of the favorites to express these two places:
Jane Krakowski ("30 Rock") - nomination for an Emmy in the past success of the show + Kristin Wiig ("SNL") - multiple nomination in the past.
Wendy Mallik ("Hot in Cleveland").
Betty White is following the most chances for the nomination, but two actresses from the same show nominated as we see it, just in case the nomination of the series.
Holland Taylor ("Two and a half men") - nomination last year, but after a series of events around the chance of significantly diminished.
Catherine Jousten ("Desperate housewives") - earlier nominated for best guest star in this drama.
Amy Ryan ("The Office") - actress filed for this category, but I would not overrated her chance.
Phyllis Somerville ("The Big C") - nomination has right to life only in the case of nomination of the series.
Tamsin Gregg ("Episoides") - cast of Showtime show her the best chance, even more than Le Blanc, but again, just to "wow" on the show she has not shown herself.
The men of the same name in the category, given the trio / quartet of "Modern family", as well as Chris Colfer ("Glee") and Neil Patrick Harris ("How I met your mother"), there are almost no places in nomination, but only if there will be nominated three of the actors "Modern Family", then we can talk about a vacant slot in this category. Most likely to have a place - Nick Offerman ("Parks & Recreation"), Jon Cryer ("Two and a half men"), Rainn Wilson ("The Office") and Oliver Platt ("The Big C").
In dramatic supporting roles (cast of the second plan) for a half day before the announcement of nominees for the situation escalated to the limit as density of the favorites is very big, really for the nomination (especially males) claims about a dozen candidates, many of them with equal opportunities.
The women in this category are much more transparent - a number of actresses should not worry about the nomination, because they will be nominated with no doubts - Archie Panjabi ("The good wife"), Christina Hendricks ("Mad men"), Kelly MacDonald ("Boardwalk empire"). Then we have an actresses with a high probability of nomination - Michelle Forbbs ("The killing"), Margo Martindale ("Justified"), Christine Baranski ("The good wife"), as well as applicants with less chance there is less compared to the first six - Sharon Gless ("Burn Notice"), Debra Winger and Amy Ryan (both "In Treatment"), Kiernan Shipka ("Mad Men") plus divas from "Greys Anatomy" Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson. Unfortunately, very little chances have actresses from "Parenthood", "Southland", "Big Love", etc.
The men will be nominated to represent a set of actors from "The good wife" and "Boardwalk Empire", as well as other "lucky". From first two shows the most option 2x2 : Alan Cumming – 100% + Chris North, or Josh Charles, for the first extensive experience in roles on television, for the second - excellent game and a relatively new face in television industry, Michael Pitt - the front-runner of the "Empire ..." + optionally with Michael Shannon and even Michael Stalberg. These fellows will join as an early favorite for the award - John Slattery from "Mad Men". Nomination of Andre Brouwer, who was nominated last year, is no longer considered a really secure. But seems, that John Noble "Fringe" and Walton Goggins of "Justified" have rather high chances. Nomination of Brent Sexton ("The Killing") or, say, Jared Harris ("Mad Men") is more fan rumor than a real possibility.
In the U.S., once again handed out statuettes of Emmy Awards. Best Drama Series for the third consecutive year, recognized a "Mad Men", telling about everyday life of an advertising agency in 1960 (this year the movie has gotten 17 nominations).
The best comedy series became "Modern family" that cost the leader in nominations among comic TV series - "Glee", presented in 19 categories, but lost in most of them. But for the creators of "Glee" such failure does not mean a complete fiasco. The series already has to its credit a Golden Globe for Best Series (Musical or Comedy), won both times in competition with "Modern Family".
The grand project of producer Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks' "Pacific" (23 nominations), which is a continuation of the famous military-historical epic "Band of Brothers", was the best television mini-series.
Long before the ceremony the winners were known in many technical nominations, as well as the names of those actors that were invited to the best projects: among them, John Lithgow (for "Dexter"), Neil Patrick Harris ("Glee"), Ann-Margret ("Law & Order. Special Victims Unit") and "the most popular of modern Hollywood's Grandma" Betty White, received a statuette for her participation in the show "Saturday Night Live".
