Masters of Sex stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, and focuses on the real-life work of Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the scientists at the forefront of human sexuality research. The series scored five Emmy Award nominations this year, including noms for Caplan, Beau Bridges and Allison Janney who already won the award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Margaret Scully.

Ray Donovan stars Liev Schreiber as the titular Ray, a "fixer" for the powerful law firm Goldman & Drexler, representing the rich and famous, while FBI agents try to bring down Ray and his associates. Jon Voight, who plays Ray's father Mickey, is also up for an Emmy, receiving his first ever series nomination.
