Primetime Emmy Nominations 2015

At 8:30 a.m. PST/11:30 a.m. EST, Uzo Aduba of Orange is the New Black and Cat Deely, host of So You Think You Can Dance?, announced the nominations for the 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards live from the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles.

Going into the nominations, perennial favorites including Mad Men and Orange is the New Black were expected to do well, as well as some newcomers including Empire, black-ish, and Grace and Frankie.  

Game of Thrones has the most nominations with 24, including Outstanding Drama Series. Grace and Frankie were not nominated as well as expected, while Netflix comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was nominated better than expected, including a nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. Empire was largely snubbed, with only one nomination in the main acting categories of Taraji P. Henson for Lead Actress.

Andy Samberg will host the 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards on September 20.  The awards will be broadcast live on Fox from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
