"Saturday Night Live" has become the most nominated show in the Emmy awards’ history after receiving 13 nods yesterday, bringing its total to 126 Emmy nominations, reports the New York Times

“We’ve run longer than most television critics,” said Lorne Michaels, the creator of the show that began in 1975. He added that he was particularly proud that six of this year’s nominations were for the May 8 episode hosted by 88-year-old Betty White, the article says.

“And it was one of those shows that it turned out that everyone was at home. It’s just a tribute to her and how that all came together. I was really proud of that show," Michaels said. His show’s 126 nominations broke the previous record of 124 nominations held by the hospital drama "E.R."


  1. Wow, and it only took them 36 seasons on the air to break that nomination record…
    Imagine if they actually did more than an occassional good episode.

  2. E.R. did it in 15 seasons. It really isn’t comparable. This is a nonsense record that would only be brought up in Hollywood.
