The 66th Primetime Emmy nominations are in! Unsurprisingly, True Detective managed to crack the list. Less predictably, though Brooklyn Nine-Nine was quick to find a spot on the Golden Globe nominations list last year, it wasn't so successful with securing a spot on the list of nominees for Outstanding Comedy. HBO's Silicon Valley, however, did receive some much deserved love.
