LOS ANGELES (AP) — The fantasy saga “Game of Thrones,” defying the Emmy Awards’ grudging respect for genre fare, emerged as the leader in the nominations announced Thursday with 19 bids, including best drama series.

The meth kingpin drama “Breaking Bad” was next in line with 16 bids for its final season, including best drama and best actor nod for star Bryan Cranston.

Other top nominees included a pair of ambitious miniseries, “Fargo,” with 18 bids, and “American Horror Story: Coven,” with 17. The AIDS drama “The Normal Heart” received 16 nominations, including best TV movie.

    Cable TV used to be good. All those channels like A&E, Cartoon Network, Sci-Fi, TLC (the former “Learning Channel”), the History Channel and others have downgraded their programming to appeal to the lowest common denominator and broadcast mindless drivel. We can blame Geraldo for this when he did his special, Al Capone’s Vault.
