Game Of Thrones was already the most decorated fictional show in the awards' seven-decade history, and now has 161 nominations, according to the Television Academy website. HBO has also scored another record this year with 137 nominations, beating Netflix who scored 117 across the board.

Roberts was nominated for an Emmy in 2014 for the miniseries "The Normal Heart" and in 1999 for her guest starring role on "Law & Order".

Actor, Drama Series: Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Sterling K. Brown, "This is Us"; Kit Harrington, "Game of Thrones"; Bob Odenkirk, "Better Call Saul"; Billy Porter, "Pose"; Milo Ventimiglia, "This is Us".

Voters love Schitt's Creek and Fleabag - The previously-snubbed cult comedy Schitt's Creek unexpectedly snuck into the Outstanding Comedy Series category, also scoring nominations for its lead actors, Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara.

Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is seen accepting the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series at the 2016 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

A wealth of acting nominations for the cast and guest stars, including the show's only previous victor, Peter Dinklage with three awards, helped "Game of Thrones" add to its already record haul of nominations, now at 160 total.

At times she looked overcome with the pressure and the weight of the record books. "Whatever Serena did, Halep had the answer". The crowd was very much on her side on Saturday, with loud cheers every time she won a point, no matter how hard or contested.

The fact-based drama Chernobyl also received 19 nominations, including recognition for actors Jared Harris and Emily Watson.

When They See Us, Ava DuVernay's stunning portrayal of the story of the Central Park 5, turned Exonerated Five, nabbed 16 Emmy nominations this year, including Outstanding Limited Series. "That took them about 30 seconds ... they just started following the President". One of those was Julia Roberts not receiving a nomination for her work on Amazon's Homecoming.

All three shows ended long runs in May.

The ceremony is yet to have a host attached, with reports suggesting it might follow in the footsteps of this year's host-less Oscars.

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards will be handed out live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Sept. 22 on Fox.
