Emmy noms 2016- Game of Thrones leads the pack

The Primetime Emmy Awards, that's TV's Oscars basically, will be taking place on the 18th of September 2016 and the nominations have just been announced.

It's a wide field this year, with the likes of Fargo, The Americans, Mr Robot and more getting multiple nods. Game of Thrones seems to have the biggest presence but there's a lot of attention on The People vs OJ Simpson, particularly for acting plaudits. And it's always nice to see LOOFAH himself getting a nod in the form of Idris Elba.

The full list is here and you'll get to see who wins on the 18th of September. We're rooting for Mr. Robot, Master of None, Rami Malek, Jeffrey Tambor, Tatiana Maslany, Julia Louis-Drefuss, Ben Mendelsohn, Ty Burrell, Masie Williams, Fargo, Luther, Tom Hiddleston and Kirsten Dunst, in case you were wondering.
