The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced this morning the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Award nominations, recognizing AMC with 29 nominations, the most for any basic cable network for the fourth year in a row, breaking the previous 26 nomination record for the network from 2010. Mad Men, which reigns as the only television series in cable history to win the Emmy for Outstanding Drama three years in row (2008, 2009 and 2010), continues to be the most Emmy nominated drama on television. This year the series garnered 19 nominations making it the most recognized series on television.

AMC’s The Killing received 6 nominations, while The Walking Dead received 3 nominations. The network series Rubicon garnered 1 nomination. The network’s Breaking Bad, which garnered wins for three years in a row for Bryan Cranston as Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series and Aaron Paul last year as Outstanding Supporting Actor, was not eligible for this year’s competition based upon it not being telecast during the Jun. 1, 2010-May 31, 2011 awards year. Breaking Bad will premiere its fourth season this Sun., Jul. 17 and be in full competition next year.

The following is a statement from AMC President and General Manager Charlie Collier:

“We thank the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for recognizing AMC and our amazing creative partners. It’s exciting to be the network with the most nominations on basic cable.

“We congratulate all of the Mad Men, The Killing, The Walking Dead, and Rubicon nominees, their talented production teams, spectacular casts and our exceptional production partners on these well-deserved nominations.”
