The time has come for the 2019 Emmy Awards. The 71st annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air live on Fox this Sunday September 22nd at 8pm Eastern time and will honour some of the biggest television achievements of the past year.

This year's Emmy nominees include a lot of beloved newcomers with the power to upset the status quo. Nominations were announced on Thursday by the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

There are 44 Nominees across 11 categories and 21 countries. Winners will be announced at a black-tie ceremony on November 25th at the Hilton New York Hotel.

Bruce L. Paisner, President and CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, said: "The diversity, geographic spread and quality of this year's Nominees is a testament to the increasing wealth of outstanding television being created on a global scale."

The major awards will be split into separate categories for comedy and drama. On the drama side, Game of Thrones is also the only show to be nominated in all seven drama categories, which is expected to set a new record for most Emmy wins by a single season. In addition, stars Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke are nominated for Lead Actor in a Drama and Lead Actress in a Drama.

Between the Primetime Emmys and the Creative Arts Emmys, Game of Thrones' final season earned 32 nominations, the most received in a single year by any show in the history of the awards.

'This Is Us', 'Better Call Saul', 'Killing Eve', 'Pose', 'Succession', 'Ozark', and 'Bodyguard' are also vying in the drama category.

On comedy is the final season of HBO's 'Veep, which has won best comedy the last three times it was nominated and will try for a fourth at Sunday's Emmy Awards.

Louis-Dreyfus is also nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy, an honour she has as already won six times for her role as Selina Meyer, on top of a Lead Actress in a Comedy win for The New Adventures of Old Christine and a Supporting Actress in a Comedy win for Seinfeld.
