'Game of Thrones' and 'The People v. O.J. Simpson' lead the nominees as 'Mr. Robot' and 'The Americans' break through.
The Television Academy announced nominees for the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards on Thursday morning, again at the forgiving hour of 8:30 a.m. PT — not 5:30 a.m., as in so many years past.
Black-ish star Anthony Anderson and once-and-future Gilmore Girls actress Lauren Graham had the honor of naming this year's nominees from the Academy's North Hollywood headquarters. In addition to Game of Thrones once again earning the most nominations, FX's The Americans finally broke through. And, in its first year of eligibility, USA breakout Mr. Robot made a strong showing.
