Emmy Nominations (2013)

We’re all about movies around here but quite often there are things in the TV world that strike our fancy for conversation; particularly in the Cinecast. Yes we have a separate Television section on the site devoted to all things small screen, but I thought this might interest a larger audience: the 2013 Emmy Nominations.

In recent months the Cinecast has covered streaming television shows such as “House of Cards” and “Arrested Development.” We’ve talked about terrific made for TV movies such as “Behind the Candelabra.” And of course there is our weekly “Game of Thrones” talk. Since a lot of these shows that we mention on a regular basis are in the running for some of these awards, I thought here is a good place to post all of the nominations for this year’s awards and a good time to reiterate our love for some of these shows/films.

Here are all of the nominations for the major categories (THE REST CAN BE FOUND here). Have at it!
