71st annual Primetime Emmy Awards Nominations announced

Celebrity presenters Ken Jeong and D'Arcy Carden announced the nominees for the 71st Emmy Awards on July 16, 2019.

LOS ANGELES – Nominations for the 71st Emmy® Awards were announced today by the Television Academy, presenting the widest array of firsttime performer nominees since 2011.

In a ceremony hosted by Television Academy Chairman and CEO Frank Scherma along with presenters Ken Jeong (The Masked Singer) and D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place), not only were new faces prominently recognized, but also an equally fresh group of shows together with acclaimed, veteran television programs.

HBO’s Game of Thrones secured 32 nominations, the most for any program in a single season, beating a 25-year standing record set by NYPD Blue. Over its eightseason run, the series has received a total of 161 nominations.

Game of Thrones was followed by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (20), Chernobyl (19), Saturday Night Live (18), Barry (17), Fosse/Verdon (17) and When They See Us (16). In addition, overall cast contributions were acknowledged with Game of Thrones’ 10 nominations across five performer categories, and eight nominations across four performer categories for When They See Us.

“It’s great to see such an array of new talent honored for their excellent work,” said Scherma. “While our voting membership recognized several returning, acclaimed programs, there are many Emmy categories that feature fresh shows and emerging talents, celebrating the opportunity and continued creative growth offered by television.”

Of this year’s eight nominees for Outstanding Drama Series, five were new to the category. Newcomers, spread across a variety of distribution platforms, include Bodyguard, Killing Eve, Ozark, Pose and Succession. Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones and This Is Us return to the category.

Among this year’s seven Outstanding Comedy Series nominees, there are four first timers representing a wide range of storytelling. Fleabag, The Good Place and Schitt’s Creek, along with freshman show Russian Doll, join returning hits Barry, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Veep.

Emilia Clarke, Mandy Moore, Jodie Comer and Laura Linney received their first Lead Actress in a Drama Series nominations, joined by returning nominees Robin Wright and Sandra Oh, and previous Emmy winner Viola Davis. Lead Actor in a Drama Series nominees Kit Harington and Billy Porter are new to the category, joining previous category winner Sterling K. Brown and returning nominees Milo Ventimiglia, Jason Bateman and Bob Odenkirk.

Michael Douglas and Eugene Levy are new to the Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category and join previous nominees Don Cheadle, Anthony Anderson and Ted Danson, along with last year’s category winner Bill Hader. Nominees for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series include first-time Emmy nominees (in this category) Natasha Lyonne, Catherine O’Hara and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who join previous category nominee Christina Applegate, last year’s winner Rachel Brosnahan and 11- time Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Other first-time performer nominations include Amy Adams, Anthony Carrigan, Gwendoline Christie, Sian Clifford, Paul Dano, Benicio del Toro, Hugh Grant, Michael McKean, Kumail Nanjiani, Chris O’Dowd, Rosamund Pike, Sam Rockwell, Kristin Scott Thomas, Rufus Sewell, Stellan Skarsgård, Sophie Turner, Emily Watson and Michelle Williams among a long list of distinguished and beloved performers.

Other multiple nominees across different properties include: six-time Emmy winner James Corden secured nominations in multiple categories, including Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Competition Program (The World’s Best) and for his work on Carpool Karaoke and The Late Late Show with James Corden franchises; Sandra Oh (Killing Eve, Saturday Night Live); RuPaul (RuPaul’s Drag Race, RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked); Patricia Arquette (Escape at Dannemora, The Act); Adam Sandler (Saturday Night Live, Adam Sandler: 100% Fresh); as well as first-time nominee Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve, Fleabag). First-time nominee Marie Kondo received two nominations for Tidying Up With Marie Kondo. Ava DuVernay was nominated for Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Directing for When They See Us.

Leading the nominations in totals by platform were HBO (137), Netflix (117), and NBC (58).

Nomination rosters will be finalized from July 16 to July 30, 2019. The rosters may be revised in cases where names or titles are incorrect, or appeals for changes— including the addition or removal of names—are approved by the Primetime Emmy Awards Committee. Producer eligibility is based primarily on title. The nominees in certain program categories will be announced later this month. Final-round online voting begins August 15, 2019.

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards will air Saturday, September 21 at 8:00 PM ET/PT on FXX, and will be executive produced by Bob Bain.
