The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards are still a couple months away, but Tuesday morning revealed who you can expect to see on TV's biggest night as the nominations were announced by Ken Jeong and D'Arcy Carden. As predicted, the evening will be a star-studded affair, with the casts of Game of Thrones, Barry, and more attending the festivities — but now we know who else will be a nervous wreck waiting to see if they've won that coveted golden statuette.

Among those vying for awards are repeat nominees like Sterling K. Brown, Mandy Moore, and Milo Ventimiglia for This Is Us, along with comedic heavyweights Anthony Anderson (black-ish) and The Good Place's Ted Danson. Fan favorites like Fleabag and Schitt's Creek also received recognition for their incredible body of work. However, the biggest winner of the day was Game of Thrones, which broke the record for most nominations for a single season with 32, despite a controversial Season 8.

Of course, the nerves haven't kicked in yet and those who were talented and lucky enough to land a nod are still basking in the glow of recognition.

Aunjanue Ellis: "This nomination is a tribute to Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Raymond Santana, Korey Wise and Yusef Salaam. Let's all say their names.
