The official nominations for the 71st Emmy Awards have finally been announced today, and they come with some record-breaking numbers for one HBO drama.

Just like it did last year, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” scored the most total Emmy nominations of any shows this year, raking in a whopping 32 nominations for its final season – beating a 25-year standing record held by “NYPD Blue” for the most nominations for any program in a single season.

Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” scored the second-most nominations with a total of 20, while the HBO miniseries, “Chernobyl,” came third with 19.

The Creative Arts awards will air Saturday, Sept. 21 on FXX, leading up to the Primetime Emmys, which will air live Sunday, Sept. 22 on NBC. Below is a list of all the major Primetime Emmy Award nominees for 2019:
