2012 Emmy Awards Nominees

20120719-090550.jpg

It would seem as we are watching a replay of last years nominees as mostly the same are nominated once again. Mad Men looks to win its 5th consecutive drama facing tougher opposition with AMC’s other drama Breaking Bad and newcomer Downtown Abbey. There are other surprises here and there including Jared Harris’ inclusion for supporting actor in what will prove to be the most heated race. Giancarlo Esposito gave a sizzling performance this year and should be a real threat for Peter Dinkrage who figures to be the favorite.

Bryan Cranston is also looking or his fourth win in a row which is also almost a given as he pulled his best performance yet as Walter “Heisenberg” White. Modern Family will also be a favorite. Lets check out our list!
