Hit drama Mad Men looks set to dominate the 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards after scoring 19 nominations, including Best Drama. Mad Men star Jon Hamm will go up against the likes of Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire), Hugh Laurie (House) and Michael C. Hall (Dexter) for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, while his co-star Elisabeth Moss will battle for the lead actress prize against Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) and Kathy Bates (Harry’s Law).
The Outstanding Drama Series category will be a closely-fought affair – Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Dexter, Friday Night Lights, The Good Wife and Martin Scorsese’s Boardwalk Empire are all in the running, while Outstanding Comedy Series nods go to 30 Rock, Glee, Modern Family, The Office, The Big Bang Theory and Parks and Recreation.
The most nominated show was Mildred Pierce – the HBO miniseries starring Kate Winslet earned a total of 21 nominations, including Outstanding Miniseries or Movie and recognition for the Titanic beauty for Outstanding Actress in a Miniseries.
30 Rock’s Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, Nurse Jackie’s Edie Falco, and The Office’s Steve Carell are also set to compete for top acting awards.
The nominees were announced live from Hollywood on Thursday morning by Joshua Jackson and Melissa McCarthy, who found herself lost for words after hearing her name announced as a contender for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Mike & Molly.
She exclaimed, “Oh my god, yikes!”
