Here's everything you need to know about the Emmy Award nominations, with all the right Community GIFs to tell you how to feel about them.

1

Community didn't get nominated for Best Comedy, got no directing nominations, and not one member of the cast was nominated for their acting.

Community did get one nomination for writing, for their intricately plotted "Remedial Chaos Theory" episode.

Did you know that "Remedial Chaos Theory" is already nominated for a Hugo Award, which is unusual and cool for a comedy show?

Other comedy snubs include Archer receiving no nominations, Parks & Rec not being nominated for Best Comedy…

…and zero Emmy nominations for Cougar Town, a show that has never received any Emmy nominations at all.

Then they did this thing where they nominated Louis C.K. as a director AND as an actor AND as a writer, but then didn't nominate Louie for Best Comedy.

Also, this year there's a total of seven nominees for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, so they're definitely noticing how much excellent work female comedians are doing on TV right now.

The most exciting acting nomination? First-time Emmy nominee Giancarlo Esposito, a.k.a. Gus Fring from Breaking Bad.

And this year will be an amazing battle for Outstanding Drama Series between nominees Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey (nominated as a drama instead of a miniseries), Boardwalk Empire, Homeland, Game of Thrones, and four-time previous winner Mad Men.

Mad Men is the co-leader in total nominations for one show, and the show it's tied with…is American Horror Story?

And HBO's racked up an amazing 81 nominations as a network, which means they'll probably keep making suitably epic shows for you to steal and enjoy and then feel guilty for stealing.
