Emmy Nominations 2017

Reminder: Here Are the 2017 Emmy Nominations!

There are a few nominees for the 2017 Emmys whom we expected to see on the long, long list of worthy candidates, but there are also a few surprises. Take note: you won't find Game of Thrones on this list, and not because it was snubbed — the show simply wasn't eligible this year. In the meantime, check out all the nominees below and get ready for the actual show on Sept. 18, which will be hosted by Stephen Colbert!
