This year's Emmy Awards nominations were something of a rerun in their own right. Like last year, AMC's Mad Men garnered the most nominations for a dramatic series -- 17 -- and ABC's Modern Family for a comedy -- 14. Not a single show airing on the four major networks was nominated in the drama category. Besides Mad Men, other nominees were HBO's Boardwalk Empire, and Game of Thrones, AMC's Breaking Bad, Showtime's Homeland , and PBS's Downton Abbey. Joining Modern Family in the best comedy category were HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, Girls, and Veep , CBS's The Big Bang Theory , and NBC's 30 Rock . As usual, HBO dominated the Emmy nominations with 81 nods, but that was the fewest number it has received since 1999. Also receiving the greatest number of multiple nominations were FX's miniseries American Horror Story with 17 nominations, as well as Downton Abbey and the History Channel's Hatfields and McCoys with 16 each. Winners are due to be announced at an ABC-televised ceremony on Sept. 23.
