The annual awards show honors achievements in American primetime television. The ceremony is separate from the Daytime Emmy Awards, which honors programs that air between 2 a.m. and 6 p.m.
HBO's Game of Thrones is this year's most nominated series, with 19 nominations in categories such as Outstanding Drama Series, Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and Writing in a Drama Series. Fargo and American Horror Story: Coven are close behind with 18 and 17 nominations, respectively.
Given the eligibility period of June 1, 2013 to May 31, 2014, Breaking Bad, which came to a close on September 29 last year, is honored as well. Bryan Cranston is up for Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Walter White, with co-star Aaron Paul nominated for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Jesse Pinkman.
A full list of the nominees is available on the official Emmys website. The 2014 Emmy Awards airs at 8 p.m. ET August 25 on NBC.
