Emmy Nominations 2012: See the Complete List

Emmy Nominations 2012: See the Complete List It's Emmy season, which can mean joy or heartbreak for those in the TV business, and plenty of room for fans to rant and rave about who did or didn't get nominated.

"Downton Abbey" made a big splash this year, earning plenty of nominations in the drama categories for writing and acting, as well as a nomination for Outstanding Drama Series. "Homeland" is also getting a lot of love this year in drama, and of course there's the ever-present "Mad Men." Fans of "American Horror Story" will be happy to see that it is also one of the leaders in the nominations.

On the comedy side, HBO's two newest contributions swept in and landed nominations in their first year, as "Girls" and "Veep" both earned nods for Outstanding Comedy Series. "Modern Family" kept its tradition of dominating the comedy nominations alive, with four out of the six Supporting Actor nominations going to "Modern Family" actors.

Check out the list below and see the remaining categories at the Emmys website. Angry that your favorite show or actor isn't nominated? We are too: check out our list of the biggest Emmy 2012 snubs.
