Game of Thrones Emmy nominations for final season revealed

How to watch: 2019 Emmy nominations to be revealed Tuesday

Carice van Houten was recognized in guest actress, and Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington also scored their first nominations in the lead categories, having previously been nominated in supporting.

Emmy statuettes appear on stage prior to the start of the 71st Primetime Emmy Nominations Announcements at the Television Academy's Saban Media Center on Tuesday, July 16, 2019, in Los Angeles.

Among the intriguing storylines to look for this morning: How will Emmy voters react to the HBO's Game of Thrones, the record-breaking epic and the defending champ in the Best Drama Series category? He's been nominated every year the show has been on the air (and is the only actor to have previously won).

If "Game of Thrones" misses out in the outstanding drama category, attention could shift to NBC's "This Is Us", which is also likely to see previous victor Sterling K. Brown and co-star Chrissy Metz emerge as nominees.

The Emmy nominations for the top television drama and comedy series have been announced.

In comedy, White House satire "Veep"- another departing HBO awards juggernaut - faces stiff competition from last year's victor "The Marvelous Mrs Maisel", Amazon's story of a 1950s housewife-turned-stand up comic. It scored four nominations for supporting actress in a drama series (Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams) and three nominations in supporting actor (Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage).

Other drama series vying for top honors include "Killing Eve", "Pose", "Bodyguard", "Ozark" and "This Is Us", the NBC drama that could be the sole broadcast series to earn a top bid.

"Veep", which holds a trio of best comedy series Emmys, is after its final trophies after wrapping its seven-season run.

After nominations are announced, final-round voting will begin to pick winners who will be revealed at a glitzy Los Angeles show on Sept 22.
