2014 Emmy Nominations: Little Surprises, Plenty Of Snubs

The 2014 Emmy nominations were announced this morning by Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project) and Carson Daly (The Voice). Nominations were pretty standard with a couple of surprises (Fred Armisen, Portlandia, Melissa McCarthy, Mike & Molly (WTF) and Silicon Valley), some first time nominations (Lizzy Caplan, Masters of Sex and Matt Bomer, The Normal Heart) and A TON of snubs (Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black, The Good Wife, Shameless just to name a few).
