The 2012 Emmy nominees were announced Thursday. “Mad Men” and “American Horror Story” lead the pack with 17 Emmy Award nominations each.
Outstanding host for a reality or reality-competition program: Betty WhiteFor the first time since the reality-competition host award was added to the Primetime Emmys, Jeff Probst will positively not win — because he was not nominated this year. Taking his place? Betty White, host of NBC's "Betty White's Off Their Rockers." Additionally, Probst's reality show "Survivor" is not in the running this year for outstanding reality-competition series, but NBC's singing competition, "The Voice," is. (Nor was the country's most popular reality show, "American Idol,” nominated.) Toby Canham/Getty Images
