2011 Primetime Emmy Awards Nominations Complete List

Announcing the 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards Nominees!

TV stars Joshua Jackson and Melissa McCarthy were up and at 'em early this morning to present the nominees for this year's Primetime Emmy Awards — one of which went to McCarthy herself for her work on Mike and Molly. There aren't too many shockers on this year's list; new US shows Game of Thrones, The Killing and Boardwalk Empire all got some love, Modern Family continues to dominate (now with a nomination for Ed O'Neill), and Friday Night Lights finally got that much-deserved nod for outstanding drama series. There are also some big names you may not have expected to see on this list, such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, and Justin Timberlake all picked up nominations for guest appearances.

Check out the full list of nominees when you read more . . .
