Over 150 Emmy Noms for HBO, WB and Turner
The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced nominations for the 69th Emmy Awards yesterday, and Time Warner companies received a more than 150 nods. HBO once again leads the pack with 111 nominations— more than any other network for the 17th year in a row. It's quite the feat considering that Game of Thrones did not air in time to be considered for this year’s Emmys.
Warner Bros. and Turner also grabbed 50 and 21 nominations, respectively. Before you break out your calculator, let us explain what may appear to be fuzzy math: HBO's Westworld is produced by Warner Bros., so they each count the series' impressive 22 nominations.
