69th Primetime Emmy Awards Nominees Revealed

The nominations for the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced Thursday morning and a handful of new shows like Westworld, The Handmaid’s Tale, This Is Us, Feud: Bette and Joan and Big Little Lies all scored big.

Overall, Saturday Night Live and Westworld led the way with 22 total nominations, followed by Stranger Things and Feud with 18 each.  This Is Us totaled 11.

Veep star Anna Chlumsky and former Criminal Minds star Shemar Moore announced the nominations from the Wolf Theatre in the Saban Media Center in North Hollywood, California.

Moore had a little surprise at the end for his co-announcer. An envelope was brought on to the stage to reveal that Chlumsky was nominated yet again for the fifth straight year.

"So, you’re like the Meryl Streep of TV," Moore joked.

Comedian Stephen Colbert is slated to host this year's Emmy Awards, which will air Sunday, September 17.
