Acting nominations or received as well.

Kevin spacey says i am delighted that despite being the new kids on the block, we have broken through and such a competitive field of the outstanding work.

The major broadcast networks were shut out again for the second straight year.

Hbo led the pack with 108 nominations.

Let's get straight to our west coast correspondent, john ehrlichman and los angeles.

What is your take?

Was in the room when the emmy nominations came down and this is important in the story of new hollywood.

There was a lot of energy when you have this announcement that kevin spacey got an emmy nomination and robin wright.
