sethmeyers emmys

Is it that time again? Yes, awards season is always our favourite time of the year and America’s most glamourous TV awards show The Emmys have revealed all the nominations for their 2014 award season.

Mindy Kaling and Carson Daily took to the stage to reveal the nominations, and there were some big surprises (and big shockers too!). The Brits are also flying the flag at the Emmys too, with Luther, Game Of Thrones, Sherlock and Downton Abbey all earning big nominations. But the bigger winners of the nominees are definitely HBO, you only have to look at the list to see how many times one of their shows or TV movies pop up.
