Masterpiece Receives 37 Primetime Emmy® Award Nominations

Masterpiece has been honored by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences with 37 nominations for the 2012 Primetime Emmy® Awards — the highest number of nominations the series has received in its history. Downton Abbey, Sherlock, Great Expectations, Page Eight and The Song of Lunch were all individually recognized.

"37 Emmy nominations is historic for Masterpiece and rewards the hard work of hundreds of people," says Executive Producer Rebecca Eaton. "Congratulations to all our gifted colleagues. We're honored to have presented quality work like theirs for over 40 years on PBS.

"In particular, for Downton Abbey to be included in the fast-track of Best Drama Series and to receive 16 nominations in total is beyond wonderful. Hooray to Julian Fellowes, Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Joanne Froggatt, Brendan Coyle and Jim Carter. And Sherlock rocks with 13 nominations. Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are television geniuses and it's gratifying that the Acadamy has recognized that."

The 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards will be given out in a ceremony in September 23, 2012.
