Game of Thrones leads the way at this year’s Emmy Awards

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘Game of Thrones’ has come out on top with 22 nominations at this year’s Emmy Awards.
The hit HBO show is leading the way ahead of the forthcoming ceremony, which recognises excellence within various areas of television and emerging media, held on September 17 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, after picking up noms in the best drama series category and best supporting actor and actress section, to name a few.
However, the show may not come out on top on the night as ‘Westworld’ and ‘Saturday Night Live’ are following closely behind with 21 nominations across the board each.
HBO has been the most nominated network for 17 straight years but were left devastated when they found out that Netflix had broken that impressive streak with 112 nominations.
The best lead actor in a limited series looks set to be a close call as Antonio Banderas will go up against John Legend and Benedict Cumberbatch, while Jessica Biel, Michelle Dockery and Edie Falco will battle it out to be crowned best lead actress.
Jason Bateman, Sterling K. Brown and Jeffrey Wright will go head-to-head in the lead actor in a drama series category, while Claire Foy, Elisabeth Moss and Evan Rachel Wood will be hoping to bag the gong for the best lead actress in a drama series.
Millie Bobby Brown has secured a nomination in the supporting actress in a drama series category for her role of Seven in ‘Stranger Things’ but she has some competition on her hands as Thandie Newton, Yvonne Strahovski and Ann Dowd have also scooped noms.
Matt Smith has been recognised for his supporting role of Prince Philip in ‘The Crown’, while Joseph Fiennes will be hoping he can win over the vote and secure the prize.
There’s a chance for ‘Blue Planet II’ to come away with a trophy after it was nominated for best documentary, while ‘The Voice’ will be hoping to secure best reality series.
