Primetime Emmy Award Nominations

So, we thought it would be real handy for you all if we posted the nominees for this weekend’s Primetime Emmy Awards. You know, just in case you missed it everywhere else on the interwebs.

Later this week we will let you all know who we think are going to be the big winners this year. We would love to know who your favourites are as well, so we can mercilessly judge you! Or, on the off chance you get more right than we do, quickly delete your comments like they never existed.

You can watch all the excitement and fashion unfold this coming weekend on Sunday, September 18 at 8 p.m. EST on FOX.

  1. I didn’t know there was an award for reality shows. It makes sense considering how many of them are on TV and how popular they are….but I hate 95% of them. I think they are garbage television.
