Nominations have been announced for the 69th Emmy Awards, and Saturday Night Live and Westworld are topping the list with 22 nominations each. The announcement came just over two months before the glamorous ceremony is due to take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sept. 17, 2017.

The names of the talented individuals, highly-rated series and television movies shortlisted for acclaim were announced Thursday morning by Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington, Veep actress Anna Chlumsky and S.W.A.T. star Shemar Moore.

Last year’s list of Emmy Award nominees was dominated by Game of Thrones, which led with 23 nominations, while both The Americans and The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story broke through, garnering multiple nods each. Winners on the night included Kate McKinnon of Saturday Night Live as Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and Rami Malek as Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Mr. Robot.

This year’s awards ceremony, set to be broadcast live on CBS, will be hosted by Stephen Colbert for the first time. Colbert takes the reins from Jimmy Kimmel, who helmed the event in 2016 and 2012. Previous hosts have included television stars Seth Meyers and Jimmy Fallon.
