Emmy Awards 2018: Full list of nominees

Posted: Updated:

Nominees for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, airing live on Sept. 17 with hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, were announced Thursday morning.

"Game of Thrones" earned a leading 22 nominations, including a nomination for best drama series. HBO's fantasy saga is a two-time best drama winner that sat out the last year's awards.

It's returning to face formidable competition: "The Handmaid's Tale," the dystopian sci-fi series that claimed top drama honors last year, drew 20 bids, with "Westworld" close by with 21.

The Emmy ceremony will take place on a Monday this year because of the network's Sunday Night Football commitment.

Here are this year's nominees:
