2013 Primetime Emmy Awards Nominations

The 2013 Emmy Awards Nominations were announced within the past day or two, near as I can tell.

The 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Ceremony will be broadcast live on CBS on Sunday, September 22, 8ET/5PT.

I know Neil Patrick Harris help make the Nominations announcements, and I think he will be hosting the live awards show.

I don't remember which of the ubiquitous awards show it was that I watched Neil Patrick Harris host before, but I do remember he did a really good job.

I have seen very few of the nominated shows or the actors and actresses who act in them. Very few. Going down the list of nominated actors and actresses I've watched Vera Farmiga in "Bates Motel", Christine Baranski, in "The Good Wife," Jason Bateman in "Arrested Development", Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik in "The Big Bang Theory", Michael Douglas, Matt Damon and Scott Bakula in "Behind the Candelabra" and Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, James Cromwell and Zachary Quinto in "American Horror Story: Asylum".

That is it for the actors and actresses I've seen acting in the nominated shows.

As for the nominated shows that I've watched "The Big Bang Theory", "The Amazing Race", "Dancing With the Stars", "Project Runway", "Top Chef", some of "The Voice", "American Horror Story: Asylum" and "Behind the Candelabra".

Clearly, I watch too much Reality TV and not enough Quality TV.
