TV Junkie: Emmys; More TV on Web
The nominees for the Emmy Awards were announced today
The Emmys were announced this morning, and you can check out the complete list here. "30 Rock" came away with a record-breaking 22 nominations and "Mad Men" garnered the most nominations for a drama, with 16. Despite the Academy tinkering with the process, all the actor nominees are virtually the same as last year other than Jeremy Piven (finally) not making the list. Creative Arts Emmys will be presented on September 12th while the big primetime show will be on September 20th.
More TV is making its way online via a deal between Comcast, Time Warner, CBS, and several other media companies. The difference is that these programs will be migrated online with their full cadre of commercials rather than what viewers currently experience with players like Hulu.
