Tuesday morning brought with it one of the most anticipated events in all of television: The announcement of the annual Primetime Emmy Award Nominees. Each and every year, the creators, casts, and fans of every tv series wait to find out if their show earned any nods in the most celebrated TV awards program. Usually, this event consists of the host reading the words "Game of Thrones" over and over again, as the HBO series has been a massive presence at the Emmys for the better part of a decade.
However, after missing previous awards seasons while on hiatus, and delivering a largely lackluster final season, people have been wondering whether or not the series would return to form with this year's Emmys. Can Game of Thrones be award royalty once again? Well, not we finally have an answer.
Game of Thrones earned a record-breaking 32 nominations, including three major categories. The series was nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, while lead performers Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke were also nominated in their respective acting categories.
