Amazon Studio's (AMZN.O) bubbly "The Marvelous Mrs Maisel" got 20 nominations, making it a strong contender for a repeat win in the best-comedy series category, while HBO's limited series "Chernobyl", a recreation of the 1986 Russian nuclear power disaster, had 19.

If "Game of Thrones" defends it best drama series title and claims a fourth trophy, it will join the quartet of most-honored dramas that includes "Hill Street Blues", "L.A. Law", "The West Wing" and "Mad Men".

Pundits say the comedy and limited series categories are vastly stronger this year.

In addition, Ted Danson was nominated for Lead Actor In A Comedy for "The Good Place", Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia were nominated for Lead Actor In A Drama Series for "This Is Us", and Mandy Moore received a nomination for Best Actress In A Drama Series for "This Is Us".

In limited series, Showtime has vigorously promoted Ben Stiller's "Escape at Dannemora", in which two real-life convicts escape a NY prison by seducing a female employee.

This means Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) were both nominated in lead acting categories for the first time (the duo used to submit in the supporting categories with the rest of the cast until season 7, and neither were nominated last season).

Guest Actress in a Comedy Series: Fiona Shaw, "Fleabag"; Kristin Scott Thomas, "Fleabag"; Maya Rudolph, "The Good Place"; Jane Lynch, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"; Emma Thompson, "Saturday Night Live"; Sandra Oh, "Saturday Night Live".

Former Boxing Champion Pernell Whitaker Killed After Car Accident
The former boxer who was nicknamed Sweat Pea finished his career with a record of 40-4-1 and boxed all the way from 1984 to 2001. Whitaker won world titles at four different weights and is considered among the best to have ever laced up a pair of gloves.

Actress, Limited Series or Movie: Amy Adams, "Sharp Objects"; Patricia Arquette, "Escape at Dannemora"; Aunjanue Ellis, "When They See Us"; Joey King, "The Act"; Niecy Nash, "When They See Us"; Michelle Williams, "Fosse/Verdon".

Several NBC shows also received nominations.

For its final run, the HBO fantasy epic scored 32 nominations for the Emmy Awards Tuesday morning, the most for any program in a single season.

Check back at 11:30 a.m. ET for the full list.

"The Big Bang Theory", which ended this year after 12 seasons, is among its possible competitors.

After nominations are announced, final-round voting will begin to pick winners who will be revealed at a glitzy Los Angeles show on Sept 22.
