2019 Emmy Award Nominations

The final season of HBO blockbuster “Game of Thrones” led the 2019 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, with a record 32 nods. If the medieval fantasy drama does win for Outstanding Drama for the fourth time, it will join “Hill Street Blues,” ”L.A. Law,” ”The West Wing” and “Mad Men” with that distinctive honor.

Second overall among the nominations was Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” with 20. Next was HBO nuclear disaster miniseries “Chernobyl” with 19 nominations, followed by NBC’s veteran “Saturday Night Live,” with 18. “When They See Us,” the Netflix miniseries that dramatized the Central Park Five case and its aftermath, received 16.
