John Adams, 30 Rock, Mad Men Lead Emmy Nominations


Released this morning, nominations for the 60th Annual Primetime Emmys broke hard for the HBO miniseries John Adams, with its leading 23 nominations. NBC’s 30 Rock led all network shows with 17, and AMC’s first year hit with critics, Mad Men, landed the most overall nominations for a basic cable series, with 16 noms. The 1960’s set drama embedded in the advertising world shared an honor with FX’s Damages in becoming the first basic cable series in Emmy history earning best-series nominations (NYT). HBO’s last season of The Wire was snubbed but for one nomination for David Simon and Ed Burns for their series finale script.
