No nominations for Scandal, you ask? Well, no! Sorry.

Cable TV wins again (no surprise) with HBO and FX leading all nominations with 21 and 19 respectively.

The winners will be revealed at the Monday, June 10 event in Beverly Hills hosted by Parks and Recreation star Retta - aka Marietta Sirleaf (her photo above; and yes, she is related to Liberia's first woman president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf).
