GAME OF THRONES and SHERLOCK Score Emmy Nominations


Although the miniseries Mildred Pierce and AMC's Mad Men lead the 2011 Emmy Awards nominations announced this morning with 21 and 19 nominations respectively, HBO's Game of Thrones racked up a decent amount for its first season with 13, including Outstanding Drama Series and a Outstanding Supporting Actor nomination for Peter Dinklage.

Other recognized geek-favorite shows include HBO's True Blood, AMC's The Walking Dead and the BBC series Sherlock, which aired in the United States as part of PBS' Masterpiece series.  FOX's Fringe, however, was criminally overlooked and received just one token nomination for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media.
