2015 EMMY TRAIN

Thrones Earns 24 Nods; Stevie, Foos Shows Also Contenders

The nominees for the 67th Prime Time Emmy Awards were announced this morning by the cheerful, giggling duo of Uzo Aduba (Orange Is the New Black) and Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance), who walked away with nominations cleverly concealed by the TV Academy in rehearsal, making for some priceless on-air reactions. 

Game of Thrones leads with 24 nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, pitting the HBO epic against Netflix's Orange Is The New Black and House of Cards, along with AMC's Better Call Saul and the final season of Mad Men

Jon Hamm, who has been nominated eight times but has never won, is up for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series for his work on Mad Men.

Some nice surprises in the Lead Actress/Drama category, with Taraji P. Henderson securing a nod for her work as the legendary Cookie in Empire and Orphan Black's talented Tatiana Maslany, who plays multiple versions of herself as a clone, also nominated.

On the music tip, the 57th Grammys earned three nods, the Grammys' Songs in the Key of Life Steve Wonder special earned one and Dave Grohl's Sonic Highways (HBO) is a contender in the Documentary Series category. 

Andy Samberg, who stars in the Fox comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, will host the 2015 Emmys on Sept. 20 at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.
