HBO’s ultimate hit ‘Game of Thrones’ overtook the field on Thursday’s presentation of 68th Emmy Awards nominations, boasting a field leading 23 nominations for its 6th season.
But the occasionally stodgy Emmys, which sometimes latch onto winners and stay with them ,was also infused by new blood. Popular shows like “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” “Roots” and “Fargo” drew attention to the limited series category, James Corden emerged as a force in the late-night competition , and there was recognition in the best drama category for the widely praised but previously overlooked “The Americans”
‘Game Of Thrones’ Owned Emmy Nominations yet again..!
“Game of Thrones” is up for the award for top drama series, which it won last year for the first time. The series won 12 Emmys in all at last year’s show after earning a field-leading 24 nominations.
This year, “Thrones” will face off against FX’s “The Americans,” AMC’s “Better Call Saul,” PBS’ “Downton Abbey,” USA’s “Mr. Robot,”
