The nominations for the Emmys were released Thursday, and a lot of big shows made the cut.

Here are the most important nominations you should all know about.

Drama Series:

  • Game of Thrones
  • The Handmaid’s Tale
  • Stranger Things
  • The Americans
  • This Is Us
  • Westworld

Lead Actor in a Drama Series:

  • Jason Bateman, Ozark
  • Sterling K. Brown,This Is Us
  • Ed Harris, Westworld
  • Matthew Rhys, The Americans
  • Milo Ventimiglia, This Is Us
  • Jeffrey Wright, Westworld

Lead Actress in a Drama Series

  • Claire Foy, The Crown
  • Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black
  • Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid’s Tale
  • Sandra Oh, Killing Eve
  • Keri Russell, The Americans
  • Evan Rachel Wood, Westworld

“Game of Thrones” led the way with 22 total Emmy nominations. “Westworld” pulled in a strong 21 nominations.

Overall, I’m pretty pleased with how this all worked out. “Game of Thrones” and “Westworld” are the two best shows on television right now, and it’s not really even close.

Last year, “Westworld” didn’t win a single damn Emmy. Yes, somehow the best show on television got absolutely skunked. I would love it if somebody could have explained to me how that happened. (RELATED: ‘WESTWORLD’ NOT WINNING A SINGLE EMMY IS BORDERLINE CRIMINAL)

Hopefully, the same mistakes of last year aren’t repeated. I don’t think I’d be able to handle “Westworld” getting completely shutout two years in a row. It would just be another example of how cold and cruel the world can be at times.

The Emmys will take place September 17. Make sure to tune in.
