WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. As celebrities responded to the nominations on social media, it became clear that whether they’re taking the day to drink, getting back to work, or doing both at once, they’ve all got one thing in common: They’re big fans of each other.Drama Series: “Better Call Saul,” AMC; “Downton Abbey,” PBS: Game of Thrones,” HBO; “Homeland,” Showtime; “House of Cards,” Netflix; “Mad Men,” AMC; “Orange is the New Black,” Netflix.The 1920s-set ITV show is up for three gongs, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama for Joanne Froggatt and Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama for Jim Carter.

Comedy Series: “Louie,” FX Networks; “Modern Family,” ABC; “Parks and Recreation,” NBC; “Silicon Valley,” HBO; “Transparent,” Amazon Instant Video; “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” Netflix; “Veep,” HBO. At first, she said no, but then reconsidered “I guess for me it does feel better the second time around,” Aduba said. “I just feel really grateful.

The TV academy took a modest step toward recognizing TV’s increasing embrace of diverse TV talent, giving best actress nods to black stars Taraji P. I feel blown away, like if I was a leaf, I’d have blown right off the stage.” “I’m going back to New York tomorrow, and I’ll be back in, you know, my jumpsuit,” Aduba said. “I’ll just be thinking about that primarily. “ “I’m kind of in shock right now.

Completing the British nominees are ITV murder mystery Agatha Christie’s Poirot Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case, Acorn in Outstanding Television Movie and BBC’s The Honourable Woman in Outstanding Limited Series. I flew in from Paris last night, so I was extremely jetlagged,” Latifah said in a telephone interview Thursday morning. “I was having the nicest morning. The Emmy Awards honour the best in U.S. primetime television programming from June 1, 2014 until May 31, 2015, as chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Also snubbed: freshman hit hip-hop-family drama “Empire,” which was left out of the best drama series category, and series star Terrence Howard, who failed to get a best drama actor bid. The relatively expansive ethnic diversity that TV offers — compared to movies, which honored only white actors this year — also is in play when it comes to sexuality. “Transparent” and Jeffrey Tambor’s portrayal of a transsexual’s life received best comedy series and acting bids. I’m excited.” Latifah said the 12 Emmy nominations for “Bessie” were a win for the project, which was in the works for 20 years before premiering on HBO earlier this year. “I’m just really, really happy that people received this film the way they did and my performance in it as well,” Latifah said. “This was truly a labor of love and something people needed to see.” “Modern Family” and “Mad Men” each received best series nominations Thursday in their respective categories. Actor, Limited Series or Movie: Timothy Hutton, “American Crime,” ABC; Ricky Gervais, “Derek Special,” Netflix; Adrien Brody, “Houdini,” HISTORY; David Oyelowo, “Nightingale,” HBO; Richard Jenkins, “Olive Kitteridge,” HBO; Mark Rylance, “Wolf Hall,” PBS. If it wins in September, “Modern Family” would have the most Emmy wins for a comedy series, overtaking “Frasier.” If “Mad Men” wins, it would become most-honored dramatic series, surpassing “Hill Street Blues,” ‘’L.A.

No commercial broadcast network drama made the cut for best series, with cable, streaming service Netflix and non-commercial PBS dividing up the spoils instead. We’re proud to be part of the Netflix family.” “I am so excited that Shark Tank was nominated today for an Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Structured Reality Program. Other top awards are ‘‘American Horror Story: Freak Show,’’ with 19 nominations; TV movies ‘‘Olive Kittridge’’ and ‘‘Bessie,’’ with 13 and 12 bids, respectively; and ‘‘House of Cards,’’ ‘’Mad Men’’ and ‘‘Transparent’’ with 11 nominations.

The actress was nominated Thursday in the best comedy actress category for her work on the HBO series “Veep” and issued a statement with the expediency of a busy head-of-state. “As President, my staff and I are too busy doing the people’s business to watch television,” Louis-Dreyfus wrote in a statement issued roughly 10 minutes after the nominations were announced. “Nonetheless, we are thrilled to be a part of this celebration of creativity. (Go Jon Hamm!)” Television’s most popular comedy, “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS, was not nominated for best comedy, and star Jim Parsons received no love as best actor.

The strength and entrepreneurial expertise of my colleagues—Mark Cuban, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary and Barbara Corcoran—along with our incredible teams at ABC and Sony Pictures Television and the amazing Mark Burnett and Clay Newbill, make it one of the smartest reality shows in television today. David Letterman, who retired from “Late Show,” and Stephen Colbert, who left “The Colbert Report” to succeed Letterman this fall, both received variety talk show nominations for their former shows.

The constantly increasing popularity of the show proves to me that entrepreneurship and the pursuit of the how proves to me that entrepreneurship and the pursuit of the of the American Dream are thriving, more than ever.” “I’m really honored to be considered again and I’m especially proud of our writers Jeffrey Klarik and David Crane for their well-deserved nomination.

Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri), tweeted that the scene was ‘‘gratuitous’’ and ‘‘disgusting,’’ adding that she was ‘‘done’’ with the show. Top categories will be announced in a five-minute webcast by Uzo Aduba and Cat Deeley, who will soon take the stage that is flanked with two giant Emmy Award statuettes.

Reporters grabbed last-minute bites of pastries and sips of coffee before the announcement, while press packets with details about the nominees were parked on a cart outside the theater and closely watched by academy personnel.
