Game Of Thrones leads Emmys 2019 nominations despite backlash

Game Of Thrones is leading the Emmys 2019 nominations despite backlash over the final season.

The show received 32 nominations – the most for any programme ever in single season – for its eighth and final season, with all the main cast, including Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams, nominated across various categories.

Game Of Thrones has now beaten NYPD Blue’s 25-year record for highest number of nods in one year.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel comes in second with 20 nominations while Sky Atlantic drama Chernobyl has 19 nominations.

Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh will battle it out off-screen for the best actress in a drama award for their performances in Killing Eve, while the comedy thriller series received nine nominations in total, while British stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Kit Harington are also up for nominations, with Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag getting 11 nods.

The nominations for the 71st awards were announced on Tuesday afternoon from Los Angeles, and Mandy Moore and Emilia Clarke both received their first nominations for the outstanding lead actress in a drama series category, for their work in This Is Us and Game Of Thrones respectively.

The ceremony will take place on 22 September.

Last year’s event saw Game of Thrones claim the outstanding drama series prize, while Rachel Brosnahan won outstanding lead actress in a comedy series for her role in The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel.
