The nominees for the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards were announced this morning at a ceremony hosted by Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul and none other than Tony host extraordinaire, Neil Patrick Harris, who also plans to host the Emmy Awards ceremony on September 22. The list of nominees included several veterans from this past Broadway season, including Al Pacino (Glengarry Glen Ross), Emilia Clarke (Breakfast at Tiffany's) Sigourney Weaver (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike), Alec Baldwin (Orphans), and Jim Parsons (Harvey), as well as Bobby Cannavale (The Big Knife) and Nathan Lane (The Nance), both of whom picked up two nominations. Jane Lynch, who just concluded her run as Miss Hannigan in the Broadway production of Annie, is also among the nominees, along with a number of other Broadway, off-Broadway, and West End veterans (not to mention the three nods that went to this year's Tony Awards ceremony).
