Game of Thrones garnered a whopping 22 nominations - the most for any series this year.

Others in the category include "black'ish", "Silicon Valley", "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". 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.
