2011 Emmy Awards Nominations Announced; Read the List Here This year's nominees for The Emmy Awards were just announced and "Mad Men" once again ruled, leading the pack with 19 nominations, including for Best Dramatic Series and Best Actor in a Dramatic Series.

Only one network TV show ("The Good Wife") was nominated for Outstanding Drama.

Speaking of drama, "Community" was left out in the cold for the second year in a row for Outstanding Comedy, while "The Big Bang Theory" made the category and filled two of the top spots in the Lead Actor, Comedy section.

While Charlie Sheen wasn't even on the ballot for "Two and a Half Men," Jon Cryer managed to pick up a nomination for Supporting Actor, Comedy. Nomination co-host Melissa McCarthy (star of "Bridesmaids") was shocked when she was nominated for her work on "Mike & Molly."

The 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy will air on Fox September 18th.
