Here Are Your Nominations: The 69th Primetime Emmy Award Nominations Revealed

July 13 marks the early start of awards season with the nominations for the 69th Primetime Emmy awards being announced in Los Angeles this morning.

While the list is sometimes predictable like the inclusions of Modern Family, Veep, and House of Cards, among others, it’s always nice to see what else is included each year – who surprised and who was snubbed.

Westworld, the new HBO show everyone seemed to be talking about, tied Saturday Night Live with the most nominations at 22.

The Emmy Awards will be hosted by the always fabulous Stephen Colbert on September 17.
