Also a big winner? HBO's Liberace biopic starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, which will also compete during the Primetime Emmy Awards.

Those honors will be handed out this coming Sunday. A two-hour, edited version of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards will air this Saturday on FXX.

The 2013 Emmy nominations are in.

And so is the outrage that accompanies these annual nods.

While many TV fans are happy to see Kerry Washington of Scandal or Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad receive love from the Academy, many are equally baffled over those who were left off the list.

Snubs

No Jake Johnson? Nothing for Parks and Recreation? A total absence of Orphan Black and emerging superstar Tatiana Maslany?!?

For the consideration of Emmy voters around the nation, Family Guy has released a new print ad.

And it makes those Family Guy quotes uttered every Sunday night seem downright tame by comparison.

The campaign takes aim at HBO's Girls and features the Fox sitcom's characters posing like Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet.

But it's the tagline along the top that really gets your attention: "Here's a load of comedy to shoot on your chest."

Will voters respond to these racy tactics? Nominations for the 2013 ceremony will be announced on July 18.

Forget Homeland and Modern Family. Men across the globe were the big winners at last night's Emmy Awards.

Cleavage was indeed in on the red carpet, as one actress after another stopped and posed for photographs with a couple of her major assets showing.

Foremost among them were Mad Men star Christina Hendricks and 2 Broke Girls beauty Kat Dennings. Compare their dresses now and decided who busted out in more impressive fashion:

The Emmy Awards basically turned into the Modern Family awards for the third straight year, with ABC’s ensemble hit comedy about a loving, slightly dysfunctional family unit winning best comedy, directing, supporting actor and supporting actress.

Other big winners Sunday night were HBO's Game Change and Showtime's Homeland.

Besides best dramatic series, Homeland earned wins for lead actress Claire Danes, lead actor for Damian Lewis, and for writing, all first-time wins in those categories for Showtime.

Kelsey Grammer, the star of Boss on Starz, suggested last night that he may have been snubbed by the Emmys because of his Republican leanings.

Grammer's role as a ruthless Chicago mayor won him a Golden Globe, yet he isn't even among the 2012 Emmy nominees, which Jay Leno was puzzled by.

The Tonight Show host asked Grammer why that was. His response:

Kelsey Grammer Photo

“It may have to do with several things, honestly, but I think it’s possible… I mean, I am a… I’m a declared out of the closet Republican in Hollywood."

“Do I believe it’s possible that some young person, young voting actor - or even older voting member for the Emmys - would sit there and go ..."

"‘Yeah, that’s a great performance, but ooooooooooooh, I just hate everything he stands for?’ [Cue sarcasm.] I don’t believe that’s possible.”

Grammer has won Emmys for Cheers, Frazier, and even The Simpsons, but he claims he only publicized his political views after his last win (2006).

The rebuttal to Grammer’s comment is that no matter how good he is on Boss, it's on Starz, and only has around 300,000 viewers per episode.

It’s possible liberal voters don’t care for his politics, but how many even know that about him, let alone care? Enough to cost him an Emmy nod?

Also, if any voters snubbed Kelsey for personal reasons (a big if), wouldn't his ugly, public split with Camille Grammer be a more likely reason?

You be the judge: Think Kelsey is snubbed because of his views?

Saturday night honored the best in non-prime time TV as the Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

"Daytime" is classified as 2 a.m. until 6 p.m., so there was a lot of ground to cover for Anderson Cooper and Oscar the Grouch, who served as co-hosts.

Despite two soap operas biting the dust this year (All My Children and One Life to Live), the annual award gala was a positive one across the board.

Today Show Crew

Notably, despite a ratings dip and rumors of Ann Curry's firing, NBC's Today Show nabbed the award for Outstanding Morning Show program just the same.

It's the third for Today, breaking a tie with Good Morning America. Game on.

Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa won for best talk show hosts, Jeopardy won best game show for the 29th time (yes, 29th) and so much more.

Check out the full list of winners from the 39th Annual Daytime Emmys here:
