The 62nd primetime Emmy awards will take place on the 29th of August at The Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

The drama to receive the most nominations is ‘Mad Men’ and the comedy with the most nominations is ‘Glee’. For a full list of nominations check out this article – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/62nd_Primetime_Emmy_Awards.

The emmy awards ceremony is considered tv’s equivalent to the Academy awards. The Los Angeles-based Academy of Television Arts and Sciences started the emmy awards as part of an image-building and public relations opportunity. (I think it worked).

The first awards ceremony was held in 1949 and only honoured shows produced and aired in the Los Angeles area. In the 1950’s the event was expanded into a national event and eventually matured to the event that it is today.
