The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced this morning the 62nd Annual Emmy Award nominations, recognizing AMC with 26 nominations, the most for any basic cable network for the third year in a row. AMC’s Emmy and Golden Globe-winning original drama Mad Men, which made history last year as the only basic cable series ever to win back-to-back Emmys for Outstanding Drama, received 17 nominations and stands as the most Emmy nominated drama on television. AMC’s original series Breaking Bad, which garnered two Emmy wins in 2009, received seven nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor and Outstanding Supporting Actor.

The following is a statement from AMC President and General Manager Charlie Collier:

“We thank the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for once again recognizing the network’s original series. This acknowledgment makes AMC the most nominated network in basic cable, reinforcing our promise to be the home of premium television on basic cable.
