The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, presented by Anthony Anderson and Lauren Graham, unveiled the nominees this year on Thursday.
"The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story," "Game of Thrones" and "Fargo" all scored a large number of nominations.
Streaming services are continuing to take center stage. Netflix snagged a record 54 nominations with returners like "House of Cards" and "Bloodline" along with newcomers "Master of None" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," according to The Emmy website. Amazon had a total of 16 nominations.
Last year, the binge watching phenomenon also prevailed when Netflix and Amazon nabbed 34 and 21 nominations, respectively. The word-of-mouth buzz generated by on-demand streaming companies could be more effective than other marketing campaigns, Sam Toles, the vice president of Vimeo told CNBC last year.
The Hollywood ceremony will be hosted by talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who was an emcee of the awards in 2012.
