2018 Emmy Nominations Announced: 'Game Of Thrones,' 'Stranger Things', 'Barry' & More Land Nods

This fall will bring us the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Saturday Night Live cast members Michael Che and Colin Jost, live from the Microsoft Theater on September 17. But before that, we need to know who has been nominated for the most coveted award in television. This year is full of some standby favorites, as well as some exciting new players too.

Game of Thrones and Stranger Things came out with nods in the Outstanding Drama Series category along with The Handmaid's Tale and Westworld, but didn't land any of the Lead Actor or Lead Actress nods like the latter two shows (though they did get plenty in the Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress categories). Plus, it was nice to see The Americans get some love for the show's final season.

But the comedy category saw some wonderful additions, such as Bill Hader for Barry (which also got nominated as a series) and Rachel Brosnahan for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (which also got a series nomination), not to mention Ted Danson for The Good Place.

Check out the list of 2018 Emmy nominations below.
