Other top nominees included a pair of ambitious miniseries, “Fargo,” with 18 bids, and “American Horror Story: Coven,” with 17. The AIDS drama “The Normal Heart” received 16 nominations, including best TV movie.

Mindy Kaling (“The Mindy Project”) and Carson Daly (“The Voice”) announced the nominees Thursday from the Television Academy’s headquarters in North Hollywood, Calif. The awards themselves will be handed out Monday, Aug. 25, in a ceremony hosted by Seth Meyers airing live on NBC.
