It's not surprising that usual critics' fave HBO dominated the networks in nominations with 21, but FX came on strong with 19.  "American Horror Story: Asylum" (FX) and "The Big Bang Theory" (CBS) led the field with six nominations each, followed by "Parks and Recreation" (NBC) and "Top of the Lake" (Sundance) with five each, and "The Americans" (FX), "Breaking Bad" (AMC), "Game of Thrones" (HBO), "The Good Wife" (CBS), "Louie" (FX), "New Girl" (FOX) and "Political Animals" (USA) with four each.

Steven Soderbergh is having a good week as his well-reviewed Cannes competition film "Behind the Candelabra" landed a nom as best movie, along with best actors Michael Douglas and Matt Damon.

Shocking omissions include Best Drama Series, "Newsroom" and "Mad Men" (only Elizabeth Moss was nominated as best actress drama, along with best actress for mini-series "Top of the Lake") and Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones") as best actor drama. And on the comedy side, the much-lauded "Girls" was neither nominated as Best Comedy nor was the final season of "30 Rock."
