LOS ANGELES (AP) — This year’s Emmy nominations are set for Thursday morning in Los Angeles, with “Mad Men” making a bid for Emmy history, while a couple of fresh-faced girls flirt with possible first nominations.

“Mad Men” has won four best drama series trophies to tie with “Hill Street Blues,” ‘’L.A. Law” and “The West Wing.” A fifth nomination would give “Mad Men” a shot at the record.

Newcomers “Girls” and “New Girl” are vying for honors in the comedy series categories.

The nominations by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences were to be announced by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and Kerry Washington of “Scandal.”

Kimmel, who will host the Sept. 23 Emmy Awards ceremony on ABC, is stepping in for Nick Offerman of “Parks and Recreation,” who was delayed on the East Coast by weather.
