HBO again led the way in nominations for the 66th annual nighttime Emmy Awards, buoyed by the strong showing of new drama "True Detective" and the movie "The Normal Heart," as the voting again tilted heavily toward cable and new players such as Netflix.

As usual, the nominations announced Thursday morning mixed returning series with a few breakthroughs, with the logjam of quality programming inevitably bound to produce grumbling about those shows that were overlooked.

With "True Detective" nabbing nods for best drama as well as stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson -- and "Game of Thrones" leading all programs, with 19 nods -- HBO totaled 99 Emmy bids, the most of any network for the 14th consecutive year. The pay service's coups also included a best-comedy nod to the new sitcom "Silicon Valley," while one of the more high-profile network contenders, Fox's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," didn't make the cut.

Similarly, there was no room for CBS' acclaimed "The Good Wife" in the drama voting, which saw only one broadcast show, PBS' "Downton Abbey," admitted to the club.

Netflix, meanwhile, more than doubled last year's nomination tally with 31 -- surpassing both AMC and Fox -- including best comedy and drama for "Orange is the New Black" and "House of Cards," respectively, as well as "Derek" star Ricky Gervais.

The academy clearly picked a good year to restore movies and miniseries as separate categories, after a stretch where the two had been merged because of a dearth of the latter, with FX's "Fargo" among the leading contenders, with 18 nominations.
