The 2015 Emmy nominations have arrived! Considering we seem to be in a golden era for television, this year’s nomination pool is predictably spectacular, and the battle for a win in some of these categories should be pretty heated. (Seriously—check out the Best Drama and all the acting categories—yikes!)

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” came out on top, with a whopping 24 nominations, while “American Horror: Freak Show” and “Olive Kitteridge” were the second and third-highest nominees with 19 and 13, respectively.
