Emmy Awards 12
FX took a gamble by entering "American Horror Story" in the Emmy Awards category of "Miniseries or Movie" rather than "Drama Series," and the jury's still out as to whether it paid off for them or not. After receiving 17 nominations, they only brought home 2.
HBO's "Game of Thrones" was the big winner at last night's Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards with six, but two of the horror crowd's favorites also took home one Emmy each.
Well, this is a shocker: "American Horror Story" has tied "Mad Men" to lead the nominees for 2012 Emmys with 17 nominations each. It did so in the category of "Miniseries or Movie" rather than "Drama Series", but we'll take it. Read on to learn what other genre shows are in the running - yes, "The Walking Dead" makes an appearance!
