Updated:  True Detective made its mark on the Emmys as was expected this morning, taking the spot held last year by Homeland in the drama series category and scoring nominations for both its leads, Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Overall, howeverGame of Thrones lead the pack with 19 nominations, followed by Fargo with 18.

Elsewhere, the Emmys held onto their love of shows like Downton Abbey even as they made some changes to their lineups. In the comedy category Girls, a nominee for two years running, did not score a series nod. Instead, newcomers Orange Is the New Black and Silicon Valley ended up in the running, along with old standbys The Big Bang TheoryLouie, and Modern Family.
