Tonight, he 65th Primetime Emmy Awards will honor Hollywood’s best writing, brightest stars and greatest series of the moment. HBO takes the lion’s share of total nominations this year, clocking in at a whopping 37 votes. But for programs, it’s NBC’s ’30 Rock’ that nets the highest number of nods.

Tune into CBS at 8 p.m. to catch all the live Emmy glam, scope the winners and watch host Neil Patrick Harris (of How I Met Your Mother fame) dish out the funny at the annual awards show. If you’ve been residing under a rock (or 30) this the year (or can’t afford cable — we feel you) don’t fret: we’re here to help with a quick roundup of need-to-know noms.
