Main Title Theme Music and Art Direction are the two additional categories where it really deserved nominations. Oh, well, it still did great, and the nom for Outstanding Drama Series is, well, outstanding.
HBO always does well at the Emmy Awards, and it really dominated this year with 104 nominations (more than twice the second place network, which is CBS with 50 nominations). HBO productions that led the way: Mildred Pierce
with 21 nominations, Boardwalk Empire
with 18 nominations, and Game of Thrones
with 13 nominations.
