HBO Clinches Most Primetime Emmy Noms, Netflix Leads Broadband Category
The 2013 Primetime Emmy nominations are out, and HBO has proved to be the leader by a long shot with 108 nominations. For cable networks, Showtime followed with 31, and AMC and FX Networks came in third with 26 nods each. The drama series that got the most nominations was HBO’s “Game of Thrones” with 16 and for the miniseries category, FX’s "American Horror Story: Asylum" led with 17. Additionally, HBO’s "Behind The Candelabra" garnered 15 nods in the Made for Television Movie category.
Of the broadband nominations, Netflix is the clear frontrunner, with a whopping 14 nominations this year. The count is even more impressive considering that last year it received zero. Nbc.com follows with 3 noms, equal to last year. Overall, the total number of broadband nominations this year is 34, up from 7 in 2012, which reflects the explosive growth of quality Internet programming in recent years.
A look at the non-cable noms shows that CBS and NBC tie with 53 each, followed by ABC with 45. FOX only garnered 19 nods, down from 26 last year. And PBS got 25 noms, down by more than half from last year’s 58.
