2019 Emmy Nominations: The Complete List

Winter and “Game of Thrones” might be over, but HBO’s fantasy behemoth led the nominations for the 71st annual Emmy Awards with a historic 32 nods when the contenders were announced Tuesday. 

“Community” alum Ken Jeong and “The Good Place” star D’Arcy Carden unveiled the Emmy nominations ahead of the awards presentation ceremony in September as television stars, both in front of and behind the camera, vie for Emmy gold on what could be a history-making night. 

“Thrones,” which stands as the most decorated prime-time series in television history, and the increasingly real political satire “Veep,” are gunning for a victory lap after airing their final seasons. However, CBS’ long-running sitcom “The Big Bang Theory,” which ended after 12 seasons in May, was snubbed.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who is currently tied at eight wins with Cloris Leachman for the most trophies won by a performer at the awards show, could set a new record for her work on the HBO comedy series if the Emmy gods shine down upon her once again. 

But Rachel Brosnahan and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” crew might prove too appealing to Emmy voters. The Amazon comedy, which essentially swept the awards during its first season last year, follows “Game of Thrones” as the most nominated series with 20 nods across major categories. 

Elsewhere, Ryan Murphy’s groundbreaking FX series “Pose,” HBO’s “Succession” and Netflix’s “Russian Doll” all scored key Emmy nominations following critically acclaimed inaugural seasons. 

This year’s Emmys also reflects the ongoing awards show skirmish between HBO and Netflix, which for the first time bested the cable giant in nominations in 2018 after a 17-year streak. The premium cable channel came out on top this year with a total of 137 nominations to Netflix’s 117.
