2019 Emmy nominations list: The contenders in all 27 categories handed out on September 22

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards take place on Sunday, September 22 and will air live coast-to-coast on FOX. The network has opted to follow the lead of the Oscars and go without a host. That should speed up the proceedings. Over the course of a jam-packed three hours, 27 awards will be handed out.

While that is three more awards than either the Oscars or Tonys, it represents only about a fifth of the 123 categories at the Emmys. The bulk of these — 96 in all — were bestowed at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremonies on the weekend of September 14 and 15.

Last year’s big Emmy winners were HBO’s “Game of Thrones” for Best Drama Series and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. MaiseL” for Best Comedy Series. Will both shows repeat this year? “Game of Thrones,”  which signed off earlier this year, is predicted to win the top trophy on the drama side for a fourth time. However, “Mrs. Maisel” did not have to contend with three-time champ “Veep” last year and that savage political satire is expected to win on Sunday for its final season.

Check out the full and complete list of 2019 Emmy Awards nominations below. Which of your favorite TV programs will win this year? There is still time to make or updating your Emmy predictions right here before the first award is handed out at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on Sunday, September 22.
