Question of the Day
Buscemi found out he’d earned a nomination on a day he was scheduled to go to the “Boardwalk Empire” set. “I’m glad I’m working today so I get a chance to see everybody, so that the nominations are still fresh. I think it will lift everybody’s spirits today,” he said.
In the actress category, last year’s winner Julianna Margulies of “The Good Wife” is joined by Moss, Claire Danes for “Homeland,” Glenn Close for “Damages,” Michelle Dockery of “Downton Abbey” and Kathy Bates of “Harry’s Law.”
On the comedy side, Jim Parsons of “The Big Bang Theory” got a bid and the chance for a third victory. Also nominated were Alec Baldwin of “30 Rock,” Louis C.K. of “Louie,” Jon Cryer of “Two and a Half Men,” Don Cheadle of “House of Lies” and Larry David of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
Among lead comedy actresses, McCarthy is joined by Dunham, Deschanel, Amy Poehler of “Parks and Recreation,” Edie Falco of “Nurse Jackie” and Tina Fey of “30 Rock.”
The ensemble cast of “Modern Family” cleaned up in the supporting comedy categories, with Ed O’Neill, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet capturing four of the six slots and actresses Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara showing the flag for the women.
Max Greenfield, who plays Schmidt on “New Girl,” won a nomination for best supporting actor in a comedy and was already thinking of the awards ceremony.
“Zooey and I are coordinating outfits right now,” he said. “We’re trying to figure out what we’re gonna wear. We obviously don’t wanna wear the same thing. Can you imagine how embarrassing that would be?”
HBO had a leading 81 nominations, while CBS had the highest network total with 60. PBS received 58 nods, followed by NBC with 51, ABC with 48, AMC with 34, Fox with 26 and Showtime with 22.
