Nominations for the 2012 Prime Time (Crime) Emmy Awards Announced

Telemystery Prime Time Crime: Mystery and Suspense on Television

The nominations for the 2012 Prime Time Emmy Awards were announced this morning and we've filtered the list for those representing our favorite genre, Prime Time Crime.

Breaking Bad has the most nominations, followed not far behind by Game of Thrones, Homeland and Sherlock. We're thrilled to see both Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman getting recognition, though the former will have to compete with Idris Elba for the top spot.

No nominations for The Killing in any category. Future showrunners take note: Do not mislead and disappoint your fans! It will come back to haunt you in myriad ways.

In something of an twist, Ashley Judd was nominated in the Miniseries category rather than Drama for her performance in Missing. Canceled first season series are now considered to be miniseries?

The winners will be announced in a televised ceremony on September 23rd, 2012.
