The 67th Emmy Awards Nominations have been announced!

Television is the pre-eminent entertainment platform with extraordinarily rich and varied storytelling. The work of our members dominates the cultural discussion and ignites the passion of viewers around the world.

 Bruce Rosenblum, chairman and CEO of The Television Academy

The 2015 nominations for the Emmy Awards were announced on July 16. Despite the fact that Game of Thrones and American Horror Story: Freak Show are again dominating the competition – with respectively 24 and 19 nominations – more than half of the nominees are new to the Emmy’s, including Olive Kitteridge which has been nominated 13 times.

Here are the main nominees. I have highlighted my personal favourites but we will have to wait until September 20 to find out who will be the winners!
