Emmys Nominations 2012: The Complete List

Emmy Nominations 2012: The Complete ListEmmy Nominations 2012: The Complete List

The 64th annual Emmy nominations were announced Thursday morning and Television Academy voters once again showered love on "Breaking Bad," "Downton Abbey," "Mad Men" and "Modern Family." 

"Mad Men" and mini-series "American Horror Story" were the big leaders, racking up 17 nominations apiece. On the comedy side, "Modern Family" and "Saturday Night Live" continued to flex their muscles, picking up 14 nominations each. 

But it wasn't just the tried and true. Some newcomers were able to sneak in, including such new shows as "Homeland," "Veep" and "Girls."

And there were, as always, a fair share of surprises such as the posthumous nod for Kathryn Joosten for her portrayal of the ornery Mrs. McCluskey on ABC's "Desperate Housewives" and Don Cheadle's Best Actor in a Comedy nomination for his work as a morally flexible management consultant on Showtime's "House of Lies."

Here is the list of the just-announced Emmy nominees, which we'll update continuously this morning.
