The men are still mad, breaking is still bad – and announcer Jimmy Kimmel isn't ashamed to let you see him in his pajamas. So it went as the 64th annual Primetime Emmy nominations were revealed early Thursday morning.
When the dust settled, not only was Kimmel himself nominated for hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live, but Mad Men and American Horror Story led the pack – with 17 nominations each.
The race is also on between top dramatic series lead actor contenders Jon Hamm, for Mad Men, and Bryan Cranston, for Breaking Bad – while both of their shows are also in the running for best dramatic series, along with Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones and Homeland.
The other actor nominees are Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey); Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire); Michael C. Hall (Dexter); and Damian Lewis (Homeland).

Don Draper may enjoy a three-martini lunch, but Mad Men star Jon Hamm opted for a more low-key meal when he headed out solo on New York's Upper West Side.
Going incognito in a baseball cap and black sunglasses, the Mad Men star popped into Lansky's Jewish Deli, where he ordered a big bowl of matzo ball soup.
"He was quiet throughout his meal, but was very polite," an onlooker tells PEOPLE, adding that Hamm read the newspaper while dining. "He walked into Lansky's and knew exactly where he wanted to sit and what he wanted to eat."

Jessica Paré appeared only at the end of Mad Men's fourth season as Megan, but her character certainly kept busy in the hiatus, marrying Jon Hamm's Don Draper.
By the end of the season 5 premiere, the Canadian actress had created a sensation – on TV and on the Internet.
Clad in a black mini-dress, the sexy Paré, 29, belted out a killer performance of "Zou Bisou Bisou" for Don's birthday in an episode of AMC's hit show. Suddenly, Google lit up with searches for the French song.
Here are five things to know about Mad Men's newest lady on the block:

When Mad Men's season 4 wrapped up nearly a year and a half ago, Don Draper (Jon Hamm) was on the precipice of a major life change. He had proposed to his young secretary, Megan (Jessica Paré) after taking her on a trip to Disneyland with his children.
As in seasons past, Sunday night's premiere episode has been shrouded in secrecy – with nary a plot point revealed. (Not even the year in which the season is set!)
So, if you haven't seen the season 5 premiere yet, stop reading! There are spoilers ahead …

You wouldn't mess with Don Draper around the office at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. And you shouldn't mess with Jon Hamm, the man behind those suits and ties, on the Mad Men set.
But his costars thought about it.
John Slattery, who plays troubled executive Roger Sterling, and Elisabeth Moss, who plays secretary-turned-ad copywriter Peggy Olson on the AMC series – whose season 5 premiere is Sunday – attempted to play a prank on Hamm when he was making his directorial debut for the show's April 1 episode.

AMC's Mad Men is back Sunday after an absence of more than a year, and its maniacally intense fans are anticipating what new developments are in the pipeline at the chilled offices of 1960s ad agency Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. Mad Men is too subtle to resort to cliffhangers – people here live or die according to what account gets signed over a business lunch lubricated with drinks – but season 4 ended with everyone poised on the brink of ... something.
Something maybe good, possibly bad. Maybe neither. It's that kind of show. Ominous, but incrementally so.
Before Sunday's premiere, here's a refresher as to where the show's main characters were when we left them:

People swoon over Jon Hamm. And that leaves him … a little perplexed.
"I don't necessarily think of myself like the handsome guy. That's reserved for Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds and those guys," the Mad Men star, 41, tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Not that he's complaining.
"It's certainly nice when people say nice things about you, don't get me wrong," he says. "I guess I never really thought of myself that way. I just wanted to be a regular person and try to portray parts as varied as I could."

This week's war of words between Jon Hamm and Kim Kardashian has reached a ceasefire, at least for the time being.
"It's surprising to me that it has become remotely a story," the Mad Man star, 41, told E! News about his unflattering quotes to ELLE UK about the reality star, whom he labeled "stupid."
"I don't know Ms. Kardashian," Hamm continued. "I know her public persona. What I said was meant to be more on pervasiveness of something in our culture, not personal, but she took offense to it, and that is her right."
As E! notes, this sounds more like an amplification rather than an apology.

Kim Kardashian is a little mad at this man.
The reality starlet, 31, took Jon Hamm to task for recently telling Elle UK that she and her former BFF Paris Hilton are "[expletive] idiots."
Explaining that although she has "respect" for the Mad Men star's opinion, "Not everyone takes the same path in life."
