Cable Dominates Emmy Nominations, HBO Tops List
The 67th Primetime Emmy nominations were announced today and cable programming sits atop the podium with over half of all nominations – 315 of the available 567. Leading the way for cable was (not surprisingly) HBO with 126 noms.
The always competitive drama categories were lead by cable hits, taking a large share of the slots. Cable also has a good number of nods in the comedy categories, including shows from HBO, Comedy Central, and FX.
This year’s nominations reinforce the trend of the world’s top writers, directors and actors moving to cable and producing cinema-quality programing that dominates both the TV ratings and the awards circuit. Cable programmers invest billions annually to support these dreams. And this year’s Emmy nominees list proves that this hard work is paying off.
