The fantasy saga "Game of Thrones" emerged as the leader, with 19 nominations, including best drama series.
"Breaking Bad" was next in line with 16 nods for its final season, including best drama and best actor for Bryan Cranston.
Other top nominees included a pair of ambitious miniseries, "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo".
Billy Bob Thornton who is nominated for outstanding lead actor for his serial killer role in "Fargo" said he's a bit rusty when it comes to award ceremonies.
"I was pretty humbled by it, to tell you the truth. It's pretty wild. It's been a long time since I was involved in this kind of sort of award frenzy. So you get out of practice."
Also up for outstanding lead actors in a miniseries are dynamic "Sherlock" duo Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, though Cumberbatch's nomination is for his role in Sherlock and Freeman's is for is role in "Fargo".
The 2014 Emmy Awards will be handed out at a Los Angeles ceremony on 25 August 2014.
