And the nominees are...

The Television Academy announced the nominees for the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards on Thursday morning.

Black-ish star Anthony Anderson, who had a priceless reaction to his own nomination, and Lauren Graham, soon to be seen in Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival, presented the major categories from the Wolf Theatre at the Academy's newly-opened Saban Media Center in North Hollywood, California.

Game of Thrones and The People v O.J. Simpson were among this year’s top nods with the HBO fan favorite collecting 23 nominations and the popular FX series not far behind with 22. HBO shined as the leading network up for a whopping 94 trophies, four alone were for Beyonce’s visual album special, Lemonade.
