Emmys 2016: American Ninja Warrior Nominated

Game of Thrones' and 'The People v O.J. Simpson' lead the nominees as 'Mr. Robot' and 'The Americans' break through.

The Television Academy announce nominees for the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards on Thursday morning, again at the forgiving hour of 8:30 PT — not 5:30 a.m., like so many years past.

Black-ish star Anthony Anderson and once-and-future Gilmore Girls actress Lauren Graham have the honors of naming this year's nominees from the Academy's North Hollywood headquarters — and in addition to a repeat of HBO's Game of Thrones earning the most nominations, 23 total, FX's The Americans finally broke through. And, in its first year of eligibility, USA breakout Mr. Robot made a strong showing.

In the increasingly competitive race for limited series, FX's The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story led by a wide margin — 22 nominations, only behind Game of Thrones for the most this year.
