Popular series Six Feet Under with Peter Krause and Rachel Griffiths has got 23 nominations, the maximum any TV show has bagged this season, and the most in a single season for any HBO show ever. According to an official release, Band of Brothers, the 10 part series that sank without creating any ripples in the ratings charts when telecast in India earlier this year, has received 19 nominations. The comedy Sex and the City received 10 nominations including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series (Julie Rottenberg, Elisa Zuritsky). 

HBO's film The Gathering Storm has received nine nominations. Its stars Albert Finney, Vanessa Redgrave and Jim Broadbent all got recognised. Another film Path to War garnered eight nominations including nods to actors Michael Gambon and Alec Baldwin. The film is set in the mid 1960s when US president Johnson and his foreign-policy team debate the decision to withdraw from or escalate the war in Vietnam. 

The network also scored five nominations for In Memoriam: New York City, 9/11/01, including Outstanding Non-Fiction Special. The show aired worldwide on CNN International. 

The 54th Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced on 22 September.
