EntertainmentPoliticsMusicElectionsJimmy KimmelTelevision IndustryMad Men (tv program)

"Mad Men" and "American Horror Story" scored 17 Emmy nominations each Thursday, followed closely by "Downton Abbey" and "Hatfields & McCoys" with 16 each.

This year's Emmys host, Jimmy Kimmel, wore his pajamas and joined "Scandal" star Kerry Washington to announce nominations for the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards.

"Should I give a speech now?" cracked Kimmel, who received his first ever nomination as host of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in the race for best variety, music, or comedy series.

Here is a partial list of the nominees. The complete list of Emmy nominations can be found at Emmys.com. The 64th annual awards will be presented Sept. 23 on ABC.
