Emmy nominations: 'Game of Thrones' leads with 22 nods

Representational image

The nomination ceremony can be streamed on the Emmys website, or right here! The return of "Game of Thrones" during the eligibility window more than made up for the lack of "Big Little Lies" this year, with 22 nominations, including one in the drama series race.

It's returning to face formidable competition: "The Handmaid's Tale", the dystopian sci-fi series that claimed top drama honors past year, drew 20 bids, with "Westworld" close by with 21. And some didn't get the nominations they deserved, like NBC's "The Good Place" and HBO's "Insecure". It will face newcomers including "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and "Barry", starring Bill Hader. Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update anchors Michel Che and Colin Jost will host the anticipated event. Although it's up for top series honors, it drew only three supporting acting bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.

Out of the 91 nominations a year ago, HBO won 29 statues overall (10 in Primetime categories, 19 in Creative Arts), while Netflix won 20 (four in Primetime, 16 in Creative Arts).

Samira Wiley and Ryan Eggold will share a podium on Thursday, bringing us the Orange Is the New Blacklist crossover we didn't know we needed.

This year's Emmy Awards will broadcast live on NBC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. ET.
