Tallying up the Emmys: The most, the best and finally a win

Emmys by the numbers: Most wins and nominations, and who finally won


1: Emmy won by Bill Maher, who collected his first this year, after 32 nominations, as one of the producers of HBO's "Vice." He'll have another chance Monday with nomination No. 33 for his variety series "Real Time With Bill Maher."

1: Number of wins by African Americans in the comedy guest actress category since the academy divided the guest acting categories into comedy and drama in 1989. "Orange Is the New Black" actress Uzo Aduba won in the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony last weekend.

5: Most wins for best series, held by "Frasier." "Modern Family" and "Mad Men" each have four.


6: Emmys that Allison Janney could have if she wins supporting actress in a comedy for "Mom." Janney won four for "The West Wing" and her fifth Emmy this year for her guest turn on the Showtime drama "Masters of Sex."

8: Most Emmys for a prime-time performer, held by Cloris Leachman. She has won in five categories, the last coming in 2006 for her guest turn on the comedy "Malcolm in the Middle."

13: Most Emmys won by a miniseries ("John Adams" in 2008). "Fargo" is up for 18 Emmys and already won one for casting in the ceremony last weekend.

27: Sheila Nevins' record number of Emmys. The president of documentary and family programming for HBO and Cinemax added two to the haul last week.

32: Acting nominations without a win for the "Mad Men" ensemble. Robert Morse became the latest nominee to go home empty-handed, losing the guest actor in a drama category to Joe Morton of "Scandal." The number could increase to 34 if, as predicted, nominees Jon Hamm and Christina Hendricks lose Monday.

45: Emmy wins for "Saturday Night Live," the most of any series. It added five last week, including guest actor in a comedy honors for host Jimmy Fallon.

72: Cameraman Hector Ramirez's Emmy nominations, the most in history. He was nominated again this year for "Dancing With the Stars."
