'Saturday Night Live,' 'Westworld' top 2017 Emmy nominations

Nicole Thomas | 15 July, 2017, 09:08

The shows with the most nominations for the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards include HBO hit Westworld and NBC's Saturday Night Live.

Sterling K. Brown - who won an Emmy past year for his role in FX's People v. O.J. Simpson - was nominated in the lead actor in a drama series category along with Ron Cephas Jones for best supporting actor in a drama and Brian Tyree Henry for guest drama actor for their roles in the 11-time Emmy nominated drama This Is Us.

The ensemble family drama earned major nominations in the acting categories, as well, with two lead actor nominations for first-time nominee Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown, who is hot off a 2016 Emmy win for supporting actor in a limited series for his work on "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story", plus supporting nods for both Chrissy Metz and Ron Cephas Jones.

HBO also received several nominations for its comedy shows "Veep" (17) and "Silicon Valley" (10), as well as the limited series "Big Little Lies" (16) and "The Night Of" (13). In 2015, Davis made history, by becoming the first black woman to win an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Macron welcomes Trump in Paris
Trump's presidential campaign was mired with controversies , out of which the 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape was the worst . Macron struck a similar note, stating that nothing can diminish his country's relationship with the U.S.

"Veep", the most-nominated comedy with 17 bids, has a chance for its third consecutive top comedy trophy. FX's The Americans was also snubbed for best drama, but both stars, Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell were nominated as lead actor and actress in a drama, respectively.

The list of nominees has some extra room this year: HBO's Game of Thrones, last year's top victor with 12 Emmys, including best drama, is ineligible (its new season, arriving Sunday, fell out of the eligibility window, which ended May 31).

The ABC show racked up yet another nomination in the best comedy series category, as well as a nomination for Ty Burrell as the best supporting actor in a comedy series. The results were announced by #Anna Chlumsky ('Veep') and #Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds') from Television Academy on Thursday. Share your thoughts in the comments section below. Peer groups among the 22,000 members of the Emmy board are the ones who vote on the best lead actress, best lead actor, best supporting actress, best supporting actor, guest actress and guest actor categories. If you're interested in the full list, look out for the Polygon link below. For outstanding television movie, nominations went to Netflix's "Black Mirror: San Junipero", NBC's "Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love", HBO's "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks", PBS's "Sherlock: The Lying Detective" and HBO's "The Wizard of Lies". The telecast runs on CBS, and Stephen Colbert hosts. Topping the nominees' list were NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and HBO's "Westworld" with 22 each. A commercial broadcast network hasn't fielded a best drama series contender since CBS' "The Good Wife" was nominated in 2011. The only recognition for the series came from Ann Dowd's nomination for outstanding guest actress in a drama series.

Counterpart nominees in the Lead Actress in a Comedy were Pamela Adlon, Jane Fonda, Allison Janney, Ellie Kemper, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tracee Ellis Ross and Lily Tomlin.
