'Game of Thrones' earns a record-breaking 32 Emmy Award nods

Emmy nominations: Game of Thrones, Big Bang Theory make final grab for glory

For the first time ever, the HBO fantasy drama managed to pick up Emmy nods for every one of its lead actors who the network submitted - plus a couple actors who submitted themselves.

Joining "Game of Thrones" in the top category of best drama series are "Better Call Saul", British thrillers "Bodyguard" and "Killing Eve", "Ozark", transgender show "Pose", family drama "This is Us" and media mogul dynasty series "Succession".

The Emmy nominations for lead actor and actress in a drama series have been announced.

Perhaps this year's fiercest race resides in the limited-series category, where the contenders include a premium-TV feast that consists of HBO's "Chernobyl", Netflix's Central Park Five miniseries "When They See Us", Showtime's prison drama "Escape From Dannemora", and FX's showbiz drama "Fosse/Verdon".

Guest Actress in a Comedy Series: Fiona Shaw, "Fleabag"; Kristin Scott Thomas, "Fleabag"; Maya Rudolph, "The Good Place"; Jane Lynch, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"; Emma Thompson, "Saturday Night Live"; Sandra Oh, "Saturday Night Live".

Actor, Limited Series or Movie: Mahershala Ali, "True Detective"; Benicio Del Toro, "Escape at Dannemora"; Jared Harris, "Chernobyl"; Jharrel Jerome, "When They See Us"; Sam Rockwell, "Fosse/Verdon".

Now that we've taken a few precious minutes to process and discuss this year's crop of Primetime Emmy Award nominees - as announced Tuesday by D'Arcy Carden and Ken Jeong - it's time to talk about the names we didn't hear.

Actress, Limited Series or Movie: Amy Adams, "Sharp Objects"; Patricia Arquette, "Escape at Dannemora"; Aunjanue Ellis, "When They See Us"; Joey King, "The Act"; Niecy Nash, "When They See Us"; Michelle Williams, "Fosse/Verdon".

This year's multiple nominees could include long-running shows that finished their final seasons such as "Game of Thrones", "Veep" and "The Big Bang Theory".

Netflix got the most nominations of any platform last year with 112, beating HBO's 108 and breaking its 17-year winning streak.

Check back at 11:30 a.m. ET for the full list.

"Veep" which holds a trio of best comedy series Emmys, is in the hunt for its final trophies after wrapping its seven-season run.

Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is seen accepting the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series at the 2016 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.
