AMERICAN HORROR STORY and GAME OF THRONES Lead Emmy Nominations



FX's American Horror Story: Asylum leads the pack with a total of 17 nominations for the 2013 Emmy Awards, including acting nominations for Jessica Lange, James Cromwell, Zachary Quinto and Sarah Paulson.  Once again, the series was closely followed by HBO's Game of Thrones with 16.

Other recognized geek-favorite shows include Syfy's Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome, Adult Swim's Robot Chicken, CBS' Elementary, ABC's Once Upon a Time, AMC's The Walking Dead and NBC's Revolution.  FOX's Fringe, however, was criminally overlooked once again in its final season, as was the CW's Arrow and BBC America's Orphan Black, with these 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...
