Game Of Thrones set for record-breaking Emmy Awards

Game Of Thrones set for record-breaking Emmy Awards

The hit fantasy drama has been nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, two for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, three for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series, two for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. Veep also racked up a fair few noms, 17, with breakout star Rami Malek expected to win in the best actor category.

Expect to see a lot of the cast from The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story since they have 22 nominations. The event will be held at the Microsoft Theater in LA and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

Who should win: "The Americans" - Finally, after four seasons, this brilliant little series from FX was nominated for the top award.

HBO has an early lead after the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out last weekend, but FX is not far behind; HBO has won 16 so far compared with FX's 12. The clever series, a political satire starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a USA vice president-turned-head honcho, scored 17 nominations and is particularly top of mind given the current state of American politics and an election year.

Will "Game of Thrones" retain its crown? The academy has 29 peer groups that narrow the list of nominees, but all 20,000 members may nominate in the best drama and comedy categories. When, where and how can you catch this year's Emmy Awards? In fact, this is the first year that Netflix eclipsed each of the broadcast networks in nominations. Sarah Paulson is nominated for best lead actress in a limited series for her role as prosecutor Marcia Clark.

For the networks, which trade off broadcasting the Emmys, the situation is more than academic. The 23 total nominations are one short of last year's total, but Game of Thrones received nine in the major categories, which is two better than last year.

Murray makes quick work of Dimitrov on Labor Day

Past year the big comedy award went to HBO's Veep.

While several of this category's nominees feel carried over simply by default, some gems found their way in.

However awards watchers say the best comedy actor Emmy is more likely to go once again to veteran Jeffrey Tambor for his role as a father who transitions to a woman in Amazon's ground-breaking "Transparent".

The most star-studded category is perhaps lead actor in a limited series or TV movie, which includes six-time Emmy victor Bryan Cranston, who has received rave reviews for anchoring HBO's Lyndon B. Johnson biopic All The Way.

The comedy acting race includes Anthony Anderson of ABC's modern black family series 'black-ish, ' which tackles issues ranging from the Black Lives Matter movement to fallen African-American comedian Bill Cosby, who is awaiting trial for sexual assault.
