It Starts: The 2015 Emmys Nominations Are Here

Game of Thrones leads the pack with twenty-four nominations.

And just like that, we’re back into the swing of awards season. This morning, the full list of nominations for the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards—which recognize excellence in the field of Television—were announced and the field is wide open. Earlier this year, the three organizations that are responsible for you screaming at your screen because Empire wasn’t nominated for Best Drama (the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences , the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, and the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences) dropped a couple of bombshell changes to the rules of the Emmys game. Now we’re seeing the first effects of those new category/eligibility changes.

HBO is still at the top of the heap with twenty-four nominations for Game of Thrones alone (not to mention multiple nods for Veep, Silicon Valley, The Newsroom, Olive Kitteridge, The Comeback, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver). AMC and Netflix are also major network contenders with tentpole programs like Mad Men and Orange Is the New Black among others both receiving high praise.

The Emmys will air on September 20 on Fox with Andy Samberg hosting. Full nominees list below.
