Mildred Pierce leads Primetime Emmy noms

"Mildred Pierce
HBO's brilliant mini-series "Mildred Pierce" racked up the love this morning during the announcement for this year's Primetime Emmy Awards. "Mildred" leads with 21 nods, including Best Mini-Series and Best Actress for Kate Winslet. "Mad Men" deservedly leads the Dramatic series field once again, with voters passing serious judgement on Don Draper's season finale shocker by nominating Carla Buono in the guest actress category over Canada's Jessica Pare (although in rooting for Randee Heller as Miss Blankenship!). Hot on the heels of "Mad Men" is newcomer "Boardwalk Empire". In the comedy series category, "Modern Family" leads with 17 nods. ("The Big C" got screwed!!!).

Awards will be handed out Septmenber 18.
