Everything Emmy: The nominees, reactions, snubs and analysis as HBO leads, Beyoncé scores and streaming makes inroads
The nominations for the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards are out. And the reactions from those deemed worthy are in. “Game of Thrones” has the most chances to win big on Emmy night with a staggering 23 nominations, a major reason that HBO leads the competition with 94 nominations. “The People v. O.J. Simpson” is a close second to “Game of Thrones” with a total of 22 nods, and drama series “Fargo” is in third with 18 noms. Together they helped FX set a record for an ad-supported basic cable network with 56 nominations, up from 38 last year, “Veep” continues to be a large presence at the Emmys with 17 nominations.
And proving that there is truly no limit to Beyoncé's reach, her film “Lemonade” is up for four Emmy awards. Sadly, the new addition to the late-night talk show boys club, Samantha Bee, was snubbed. But other categories were more open, as some were saying, this year it’s #EmmysSoDiverse.
