The nominations for the 2016 Emmy Awards were announced on Thursday (July 14), with HBO’s epic fantasy drama “Game of Thrones” once again leads the pack of contenders for the Primetime Emmy Awards, grabbing 23 nominations for its sixth season.

FX’s “The People V. O.J. Simpson,” one of the most lauded programs of the season, is a close second behind “Thrones” with 22 bids, including acting noms for Sarah Paulson and Courtney B. Vance. Up against “Simpson” in the limited series heat is fellow FX entry “Fargo,” ABC’s “American Crime,” AMC’s “The Night Manager” and History’s “Roots.”

Rounding out the top five top nominees are “Fargo” (18), “Veep” (17) and NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” (16).
