The nominations for the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards have been announced, and it’s looking pretty good for Brits.
The likes of Tom Hiddleston (The Night Manager), Idris Elba (Luther) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) will do battle for victory in the Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie category, along with Bryan Cranston (All the Way), Cuba Gooding Jr and Coutrney B Vance (The People vs OJ Simpson).
Big names in other categories include Kevin Spacey for House of Cards and Claire Danes for Homeland.
Maisie Williams has been nominated for her supporting role in Game of Thrones, but she’ll face stiff competition from co-stars Lena Headey and Emilia Clarke, as well as Downton Abbey’s Maggie Smith.
Thrones and Downton will also go head-to-head for the coveted Best Drama Series, doing battle with House of Cards, Homeland, Mr Robot, Better Call Saul and The Americans.
James Corden’s Late Late show, which has taken America by storm largely thanks to the success of Carpool Karaoke, has also been nominated for Variety Talk Series.
The Emmys take place on 18th September. Check out more winners below:
