AMERICAN HORROR STORY and SHERLOCK Score Emmy Nominations


Tied with AMC's Mad Men to lead the 2012 Emmy Awards nominations announced this morning, FX's American Horror Story earned a total of 17, including acting nominations for Connie Britton, Jessica Lange, Denis O'Hare and Frances Conroy.

Other recognized geek-favorite shows include HBO's Game of Thrones, AMC's The Walking Dead and a surprising 13 nominations for BBC series Sherlock, which aired in the United States as part of PBS' Masterpiece series.  FOX's Fringe, however, was criminally overlooked once again, as was HBO's True Blood, with both shows failing to earn even a single nomination. 

You can read the full list of nominations here, but this is the breakdown for the shows listed above...
