Emmy Nominations 2014

Emmy Nominations 2014, Will the red carpet this August be for the Emmys or the Oscars? It’s getting hard to tell.
Anyone needing proof that television has usurped much of the movies’ cultural relevance need look no further than Thursday’s announcement of nominations for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, which produced a list cluttered with movie stars who already have Oscars on their mantels.
Chief among those was Matthew McConaughey, given his first-ever nod from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for HBO’s intense crime thriller “True Detective.” Barely four months ago, the photogenic Texan drawled his “all right, all right, all right” catchphrase at the Dolby Theatre when picking up his lead actor award for the AIDS drama “Dallas Buyers Club.”
But while McConaughey’s praise may have been obligatory, the Emmy nominees are an especially well-credentialed bunch this year. Kevin Spacey — who won an Academy Award in 2000 for “American Beauty” — was back with another Emmy nomination for his role as a compromised Washington congressman on “House of Cards,” last year’s breakthrough show for Netflix. Other Oscar winners joining this year’s Emmy club include Billy Bob Thornton for “Fargo,” a TV adaptation of an Oscar-winning feature, along with Jessica Lange (“American Horror Story: Coven”) and Jon Voight (“Ray Donovan”).
For the first 60 years of its existence, commercial TV was the movies’ poor stepchild, the “vast wasteland” that, omnipresent as it always was, never achieved the prestige accorded the silver screen. But the networks’ recent crush of creatively ambitious programming — coinciding with an ongoing feature-film stagnation in the superhero genre — is changing all that.
