Talent from HBO's Game of Thrones dominated the Creative Arts Emmy nominations, which were announced this morning, but there are many other names to watch.

Among them, Steve Price — the Oscar-winning composer of Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity — earned a pair of Emmy nominations for the score and main title theme music for Netflix documentary Our Planet. (You can hear him discuss his work in an episode of THR’s Behind the Screen.)

Following on the heels of Free Solo’s Oscar win, the film’s directors and producers, Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, are multiple Emmy nominees. They are nominated for directing the doc as well as its Free Solo 360 project. Chin was nominated a third time, for Free Solo’s cinematography. (Here's Chin's Behind the Screen episode.)

Cinematographer Bradford Young is nominated for part one of Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us. He previously lensed DuVernay’s Selma and received an Oscar nomination for Denis Villeneuve's Arrival.

Guillermo Navarro — who won an Oscar in cinematography for Pan’s Labyrinth — was nominated for outstanding documentary. He was an exec producer of National Geographic’s Hostile Planet.

At the age of 80, production designer Eugene Lee has been nominated for his 15th Emmy for Saturday Night Live (he won three times). Lee has been with the series since its 1975 premiere.
