New York's growing TV industry made a huge showing at this year's Emmy Awards snagging 107 nominations Thursday in various categories.

From talk shows, like the "Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon," to HBO standouts like "Girls" and "Boardwalk Empire," the productions have proved that New York is a new home to create high quality entertainment, according to the city's leaders.

"This year's primetime Emmy nominations prove what New Yorkers have always known -- no one does the small screen like the Big Apple," Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement. "Whether they work in front of the cameras or behind the scenes, they make our city immensely proud, and we will be rooting for them on August 25th."

Last year, New York based shows took home 26 Emmy wins. The TV industry has seen a surge in the last decade, following former Mayor Bloomberg's push with the Made in NY program and state tax credits.

During this year's TV pilot season, New York overtook Los Angeles in the number of one-hour drama pilots produced for the first time.

The city's film industry created 4,000 local businesses and generates $7.1 billion annually, according to Commissioner Cynthia López of theMayor's Office of Media and Entertainment.

"The 107 primetime Emmy nominations for 'Made in NY' productions are a testament to the creative talent of those who work in New York City," she said.
