Emmy nominations arrive Thursday, after another year of shows both familiar (Game of Thrones, Orange Is the New Black) and new (The People v. O.J. Simpson, Mr. Robot) dominating the cultural conversation.
Anthony Anderson and Lauren Graham will announce the nominations Thursday at 11:30 a.m. ET. The 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be held on Sept. 18 with Jimmy Kimmel as host.
HBO dominated the 2015 Emmys, with Game of Thrones, Veep and Olive Kitteridge winning awards for Best Drama, Best Comedy and Best Limited Series, respectively. How to Get Away With Murder star Viola Davis became the first African-American woman to win an Emmy for best actress in a drama series and delivered a moving speech about breaking barriers in Hollywood.
This year, Netflix favorites Orange Is The New Black and House of Cards are expected to receive Emmy nods, as are HBO hits Game of Thrones and Veep. While the Emmys generally reward familiar shows, freshman series like Mr. Robot and Master of None might squeak their way into nominations.
