HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ is leading in the nominations for the 67th annual Prime time Emmy Awards.
The drama series has a very good chance of winning at the upcoming ceremony with the highest number of places on the shortlists. It’s also going head-to-head for the coveted Outstanding Drama Series award with other series such as: ‘Better Call Saul’, ‘Downton Abbey’, ‘Homeland’, ‘House of Cards’ and ‘Mad Men’.
Due to the nature of the cast ‘Game of Thrones’ didn’t have any nominations in the Lead Actor or Actress categories but stars, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey and Emilia Clarke are up for supporting role prizes.
‘The Big Bang Theory’ was surprising omitted from the Outstanding Comedy Series category, leaving ‘Louie’, ‘Modern Family’, ‘Parks and Recreation’, ‘Silicon Valley’, ‘Transparent’, ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ and ‘Veep’ to fight it out for the prize.
On July 16, 2015, Cat Deeley and Uzo Aduba announced the nominations, both stars are also up for awards. Cat is running for ‘Outstanding Host of a Reality or Reality Competition Program’ for her presenting of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ – which is also up for Outstanding Reality Competition Program – while ‘Orange is the New Black’ star, Uzo is in the running for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
