Two weeks ago, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (the guys that dole out Emmy trophies) decided to cut several award categories from their live broadcast to save time.

Benefactors of the decision include cable network HBO, whose content largely dominated the noms, and a few bold names as well.

You'll now get to see the likes of Marcia Gay Harden and Jeanne Tripplehorn duke it out for Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie, as well as shows like Lost and Mad Men go head-to-head in writing categories.
