This week in TV news, we take a look at the Emmy nominations that were announced this morning!


GAME OF THRONES RULES THE DRAMA NOMINEES

GoT Emmy

Emmy nominations are out! And Game of Thrones is leading the pack with 23 nominations. The 6th season of the acclaimed fantasy drama is joined by a slew of other worthy competitors in the Outstanding Drama category. In fact, this year we finally see the acclaimed series The Americans break through with series and first-ever Emmy actor and actress noms, along with a first-time series and actor nod for breakout hit Mr. Robot. Many favorites also return with a splash and round out the Outstanding Drama category, including series noms for Downton Abbey‘s final season, Better Call Saul, House of Cards, and Homeland.


VEEP PRESIDES OVER THE COMEDY NOMS

Veep

Veep nabs the office of Comedy Nominee-in-Chief with a commanding 17 nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series, and Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series for the show’s star, Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Silicon Valley and Transparent are also on the ticket, with 11 and 10 nominations respectively. Surprises in the Comedy category included the announcement of a bonus seventh nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series category, and the perceived snubs of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and its lead, Rachel Bloom, in their respective categories.


THERE AREN’T MANY SURPRISES IN THE LIMITED SERIES AND TV MOVIE CATEGORIES, EXCEPT FOR THE NUMBER OF NODS FOR FARGO AND THE PEOPLE V. O.J. SIMPSON

On the TV movie side, the nominees are A Very Murray Christmas, All the Way, Confirmation, Luther, and Sherlock: The Abominable Bride. In the performance categories, other TV films and limited series to get nominations are American Horror Story (Kathy Bates and Sarah Paulson) and Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill (Audra McDonald).


DAILY SHOW SHUT OUT OF VARIETY/TALK SHOW EMMY FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 2000

The Variety/Talk Series Emmy category is looking a little different these days. For the first time in a long time, The Daily Show has not been nominated. Actually, it’s the first time since 2000 that Comedy Central has not had at least one show in the running for this category. Daily Show alum John Oliver made the cut with a nomination for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. He joins fellow late show nominees The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Real Time with Bill Maher and first time nominees The Late Late Show with James Corden, and Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Critical darling Full Frontal with Samantha Bee didn’t receive a nomination.
