The article highlights the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards on August 25, 2014 where 4 of the 5 networks with the most wins were broadcasters. Topics discussed include pay cabler HBO leading the field in statuettes with 19, a drop in the total nominations for broadcast networks from 195 in 2013 to 182 in 2014 and the seeming attempts by some networks to more shows into more advantageous or attractive categories than the ones where they appeared to belong like "Orange" and "Shameless."
