Emmy Nominations 2015: Game of Thrones, Transparent & Mad Men Emerge as Favorites


Orange Is the New Black star and Emmy winner Uzo Aduba and So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley announced the nominees for the 67th annual Emmy Awards this morning.

With some changes to the Emmy categorization this year, we still see fan favorites receive many expected nominations. Game of Thrones led the way with a total of 24 nominations. Transparent and Mad Men also received multiple noms. Of special note for LGBT visibility were Queen Latifah's nomination for her role in Bessie, playing bisexual Bessie Smith. David Oyelowo was nominated for playing a troubled military vet who has deep-seated issues connected to his sexuality in HBO's Nightingale. Legend Lily Tomlin was nominated for her role in Grace and Frankieon Netflix. Titus Burgess was recognized for his hilarious turn in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. John Roberts, who voices Linda Belcher on Bob's Burgers, also was nominated. Orange is the New Black was nominated in the drama category (which means it will most likely lose against its stiff competition). Ryan Murphy's disturbing American Horror Story: Freak Show -- which included Matt Bomer being slaughtered by Finn Wittrock, who was nominated -- also received several noms.

The Emmy Awards take place Sunday, Sept. 20 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Hosted by Andy Samberg, this year's star-studded ceremony will air live on Fox at 8 p.m. ET. For a list of the major categories, see below.
