The Emmy nominations were announced on Thursday with "Game of Thrones" leading with 22 nominations.

Samira Wiley and Ryan Eggold will be front and centre Thursday, July 12 at 11:25 a.m. ET/8:25 a.m. PT to announce the 2018 Emmy Awards nominees.

"American Crime Story" led all limited series with 18 nominations.

Last year's Outstanding Drama Series victor The Handmaid's Tale will look to defend its title from Game of Thrones, which is returning to eligibility this year after arriving too late in 2017 to compete in last year's Emmys.

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" is the top comedy with 16 bids.

The revival of "Roseanne", canceled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet, drew only one major nomination, a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf.

After a year off, "Game of Thrones" has returned to Primetime Emmy Award contention in a big way. It got 23 nods in 2016 but wasn't eligible a year ago.

While many might remember Eggold from "The Blacklist", the actor is gearing up for the fall release of his new drama "New Amsterdam", in which he plays an incoming medical director who has bold new ideas on how to change the culture at the landmark hospital. Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update anchors Michel Che and Colin Jost will host the anticipated event.
