We know what you're thinking — is that an Emmy statue in our pants or are we just happy to see you?!?! LOLz!!!

The nominees for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced minutes ago, and you will not believe which shows are poised to run the table!!!

Well, you'll believe in the veteran Emmy contenders like Mad Men and Breaking Bad, which continue to shine. But newcomers like Scandal, Bates Motel, and even House Of Cards, a TV show you can't watch on TV (only Netflix) are ready to rock the boat! BTW, Cards is the first streaming show to ever be nominated for such prestigious awards.

The show with the most overall nominations in the Television Academy's 101 categories was FX's American Horror Story with 17, followed by Game of Thrones with 16, HBO's Behind the Candelabra and NBC's Saturday Night Live with 15, and Breaking Bad and NBC's 30 Rock with 13.

As if that wasn't reason enough to tune in, Neil Patrick Harris is hosting and he is exactly the type of HIGHlariously talented hottie with whom we would LOVE to spend an evening!!!

The Emmys will be telecast from El Lay's Nokia Theater on September 22 and we'll be updating the site every single minute, so make us your first stop for live coverage of all the big winners and losers!!!

    Tatiana Maslany was robbed. Her performance in Orphan Black is AT THE VERY LEAST deserving of a nomination.

    Sons of Anarchy isn't ever going to get a nomination, is it :(
    It's always the same effing people for the past 4 years… The Big Bang Theory is well past it's use-by date and Sophia Vergara can only be tolerated for so long.
