John Adams, Mad Men, 30 Rock Get Top Nods at Emmy Nominations

HBO’s critical hit miniseries John Adams made out big at the Emmy announcement this morning with 23 nominations. Twenty-three! God bless America! Although HBO was also recognized for Entourage and Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Wire, the series that has us wired, was totally snubbed!

AMC’s Mad Men, where ad men still had their mojo, garnered 16 noms at the top of the drama series category. That’s the first time a basic cable program has topped that list. NBC’s “defending comedy champ,” 30 Rock, was the most-recognized series overall, with 17 Emmy bids, according to Variety. The winners will be announced Sept. 21 on ABC.
