Cable Series in Running for Emmys

The New York Times notes that the unveiling of the Emmy nominations this week adds more fuel to the argument that much of the best creative work in the medium is now being done on cable, and to the perception that shows do not necessarily need big audiences to be celebrated by the TV academy. That point was underscored by the emergence of the little-watched (but much written about) series "Mad Men" on the cable channel AMC, which received nominations in the categories of best drama, best actor (Jon Hamm), best direction, best writing (two episodes from the series creator, Matthew Weiner), best supporting actor (John Slattery) and best guest actor (Robert Morse). No other drama on television received as many major nominations. See who else won nominations.
