Award Season / Television

‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Kimmy Schmidt,’ ‘Downton Abbey’ Lead Emmy Nominations

Game of Thrones may lead the 2015 Primetime Emmy Nominations list, but there will be plenty of competition for the hit show come September 20. Hopefully this doesn’t become a farewell coronation for Mad Men, for, as deserving as that show was, it should not be winning awards in several of the categories listed below.

Here are the nominees for the best drama and comedy series:
