Emmy Nominees 2012: 'Girls,' 'Homeland' And More (PHOTOS)


The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards kick off at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT on ABC on Sunday with late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel hosting the ceremony for the first time. But he's not the only first-timer.

Emmys newcomer "Homeland" is shaking up a few races with nominations for Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor and Lead Actress. Another newbie, HBO's "Girls" picked up Emmy nods in the main Comedy Series category, and series creator Lena Dunham earned a nod for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

"Mad Men" could set records at the 2012 Emmys. Sunday's ceremony gives the AMC series a chance to win its fifth Emmy for Best Drama, surpassing fellow record holders "Hill Street Blues," "L.A. Law" and "The West Wing."
