Matt Damon, Kerry Washington, Justin Timberlake, and More Earn Emmy Nominations!

Aaron Paul and Neil Patrick Harris presented the 2013 Emmy Awards nominations today.

Aaron Paul and Neil Patrick Harris got up bright and early today to present the 2013 Emmy nominations in LA. Kate Mara was originally slated to read out the nominees with Aaron, but flight problems caused her to delay her trip to Hollywood. Luckily, Neil, who is also hosting the award show this year, was able to fill in last minute, echoing a similar situation that Jimmy Kimmel was put in last year when presenter Nick Offerman was delayed from attending the nominations.

While the nominations were full of old favorites, there were a few new and surprising additions in the mix. Kerry Washington snagged a nomination for her role on Scandal, marking the first time a black woman has been nominated for the lead in a drama series since 1995. Matt Damon, Claire Danes, and Lena Dunham also earned nominations, as did Justin Timberlake, who was honored for his hosting duties on Saturday Night Live. Read on for a sampling of the top nominations, and read the full list of Emmy nominations on POPSUGAR Entertainment.
