Game of Thrones Rules All Emmy Nominees in 2015

Published On July 17, 2015 | By Cordell Green | Daily Scoop, Entertainment, Entertainment News

See a complete but simple list of all of this year’s nominees here.

Game of Thrones led the pack of this year’s primetime Emmy nominees with 24 nods. The nominees were announced on Thursday (July 16th) by Orange is the New Black star and Emmy-winner Uzo Aduba and four-time Emmy nominee Cat Deeley. (You can see video of them finding out they were nominated below). While new shows like Transparent, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Better Call Saul were able to break through in a big way, fans of the Walking Dead, The Good Wife, Girls  and The Big Bang Theory will be upset. No love for any of them.  And critical darlings like recent Golden Globe winners  Jane the Virgin and The Affair were ignored. The most watched drama on TV, Empire, also resulted in a single nomination. On one nice note, with her Emmy nomination Thursday for “Nurse Jackie,” Edie Falco now ties Angela Lansbury as the actress who has earned the most Best Actress nods in drama and comedy series combined. Andy Samberg hosts the awards, Sept 20, 2015.
