Emmys: Big Bang Boss Proud of His Traditional Sitcom, "Can't Guarantee" a Season 5 Wedding

The Big Bang Theory

Bill Prady is an Emmy virgin and that's just fine with him.

The Big Bang Theory received its first nomination for comedy series Thursday, but the showrunner/executive producer has no clue which six episodes the show has submitted for the academy to review.

"I just got here, so I have no idea what the rules are. I'm learning about this from you right now!" he tells TVGuide.com. "I've never done this before. I'm going to assume that somebody knows. I'm going to say there's a high-place committee ...

Emmys: Mad Men's Matt Weiner on January Jones' Pregnancy and the Story Behind "The Suitcase"

Matthew Weiner

Let's get it out of the way: Yes, Mad Men executive producer Matt Weiner has a plan to deal with January Jones' pregnancy, and no, he doesn't want to talk about it yet.

Mad Men received a leading 19 Emmy nominations among scripted series, and the show's writing staff is in the middle of breaking Episode 6 of the delayed fifth season — which means by now, a decision about Jones' baby bump, and what it means for Betty, has been made. But, per usual, Weiner is keeping all details on lockdown. "I'm not going to say what I'm going to do, but I am going to have to do something! So, that's all I can say. It's really, I mean, you'll have to watch the show," he says. "It was two choices really: Either I hide it or I'm gonna go with it. I made a decision. She told me before the world knew, so I had some time to think about it. The real thing is, she's so cute! She looks great. She looks so great! It's very disappointing."

VIDEO: The Commercial Kings Pay Tribute to Harry Potter Tribute

Rhett and Link

Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal of Commercial Kings (IFC, Fridays, 10/9c) often do this thing where they'll take a block of speech that sounds far from musical (or rhythmic, for that matter) and squeeze it into a song. Maybe the ultimate example of that is below, in which a Harry Potter love vlog from a self-described "fangirl...with a camera...being an amateur" becomes an emotional goodbye ballad (despite mosquitoes that threaten to take down the entire production)...

Dexter's Michael C. Hall on Emmy Nom — and Season 6's New Journey

Michael C. Hall

Michael C. Hall woke up to find a horde of text messages and e-mails letting him know the good news that he had garnered his fifth Emmy nomination. "I had actually forgotten that the announcements were today, so it really was a surprise," the star of Showtime's Dexter tells TVGuide.com. 

Mad Men, Modern Family, Boardwalk Empire dominate Emmy nominations

"It feels like a miracle that we're still making this show at all," he continues. "We're in our sixth season now, and it's a show about a serial killer, so it's kind of incredible. The fact that it's happened more than a few years running is a real kick in the head."

Sarah Jessica Parker is in her fourth decade of professional acting, and yet she still feels insecurity about her abilities.

"I lose my appetite," she tells Vogue. "By Wednesday of the first week on [the upcoming] I Don't Know How She Does It, I was sobbing, I was apologizing.

Parks and Recreation

What would Ron Swanson say about Parks and Recreation's first nomination for best comedy?

"All he knows is that Julia Roberts is that toothy girl from Mystic Pizza, so he probably would be completely unaware of what's happening," says Parks boss Mike Schur. "He's not very hard-wired into the Hollywood scene. I do think he would be very secretly happy for Leslie Knope."

Parks and Recreation scoop: Ron's facial hair, Tammy 1, Leslie's big decision and more!

But Schur and star Amy Poehler were plenty happy to be recognized after three rocky seasons on-air. "I think she and I both felt like read more

Emmy Nominee Ty Burrell: Community Deserved to Be Nominated

Ty Burrell

The Modern Family team may be on cloud nine right now after scoring 17 Emmy nominations, but Ty Burrell can only think of those who didn't make the cut.

"I definitely feel like Community is really strong and falls into that category of shows that deserved to be nominated," he tells TVGuide.com. "It's a great show and should be up there with us.
