Girls Allowed: The 2012 Emmy Nominations

-------

It’s hard not to wonder about the overlap between Emmy voters and Twitter obsessives this year. The nominations for the annual primetime TV awards skews to the young, the cool, and the zeitgeist-y. Proof? Look no further than the presence of just about every show that’s been a hipster (and, to large part, critics) favorite: Girls (overcoming some bad press to get a Best Comedy Series nod), New Girl, Louie, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey—all got their due. So did Kristen Wiig (Best Actress in a Comedy series, for her tearful final season of SNL), the cult-worshipped English actor Benedict Cumberbatch of Sherlock, and pop culture’s favorite curmudgeons, Louis C.K. and Larry David. (This year also marks what must be the historic first time that a nominee for Best Actress—Lena Dunham (pictured), Girls—dressed up as a nominee for Best Actor—Louis C.K., Louie—for Halloween. It’s also likely the first time that an actress has been nominated, as Margaret Cho was, for playing Kim Jong-il—in a comedy.) Leading the pack are Mad Men (with 17 nominations) and Homeland (with nine nominations). The awards will be broadcast on September 23.
