Nominees for the 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards were announced on Thursday morning at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in North Hollywood. Aaron Paul was on hand to announce the nominations, and because Kate Mara could not join him, Neil Patrick Harris filled in as a last-minute substitute.
