The 2013 Emmy nominations were announced this morning, and it’s a lot of what you expected: Tina Fey and Claire Danes killing it for ’30 Rock’ and ‘Homeland,’ a bunch of ‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Modern Family’ and ‘Downton Abbey’ nods and an academy that was, as usual, mad for ‘Mad Men.’

The only real surprises? The nominations for ‘Behind the Candelabra,’ which we all just figured was nominated ironically. Also, where was ‘The Walking Dead’? Norman Reedus deserves every award in every category. Every. Single. One.
