The nominees for the 65th Annual Emmy Awards are out! Aaron Paul and Neil Patrick Harris got up in the wee hours of the morning to announce the nominees live from Los Angeles, and there are some happy shows in the mix this time around. Netflix made history with its original series House of Cards earning a total of nine nods—including one each for lead stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright—making it the first program to receive this kind of recognition that has never aired on traditional broadcast or cable. Meanwhile, Emmy favorite Mad Men scored 12 nods, Lena Dunham’s Girls earned five, and Scandal and Nashville each earned two. Plus, costume designers for Behind the Candelabra, Downton Abbey, Once Upon a Time, and Game of Thrones all received nominations for their work transforming celebrities into characters. Scroll down to see the nominees, and visit emmys.com to view the complete list. Then, tune in September 22 on CBS to see who takes home the golden statuette at the Neil Patrick Harris-hosted ceremony in L.A.
