“Breaking Bad,” the brutal, drug-fueled saga of an everyman’s ambition turned evil, captured its first best drama Emmy Award on Sunday, denying the online series “House of Cards” a history-making honor.
The most Emmy nominations, 17, went to “American Horror Story: Asylum.” Close behind was “Game of Thrones” with 16 nods, while “Saturday Night Live” and the Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” earned 15 nominations each.
Bazinga! “The Big Bang Theory” character, scientist Sheldon Cooper, already has two Ph.Ds and an IQ of 187. But now he also has a bee dedicated to him.
Organizers of the award show unveiled Friday a list of presenters that also includes Paul Rudd, Ellen Barkin, Angela Lansbury, Bernadette Peters and Candice Bergen.
