AllTheHitsSoFar doesn't usually cover TV news, but some interesting things happened with this morning's Emmy nominations announcement. Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul was joined by Neil Patrick Harris to announce the nominees for the 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards will air LIVE Sunday, September 22 at 8et/5pt on CBS.

There were a few major misses as Mad Men saw its worst showing at the awards since it debuted. The Office was all but shut out for its final season. And, Netflix made history garnering nominations for its original series House of Cards and Arrested Development (the latter of which was a reboot of the critically-acclaimed FOX series).
