Game Of Thrones, Fleabag, Chernobyl – who’s up for what at the Emmys

Fantasy drama Game Of Thrones made history when the shortlists were announced earlier this year, receiving a record-breaking 32 nominations.

Despite mixed reviews for the eighth and final season, it picked up the most nominations for any programme in a single season, breaking a 25-year record held by NYPD Blue, which had 27.

After the nominees were announced, it emerged that many of the stars had put themselves forward for the awards.

Another top nominee is Sky’s nuclear disaster mini-series Chernobyl, with received 19 nominations. The dramatisation of the 1986 Russian nuclear power disaster, released earlier this year, was one of the unexpected TV hits of the year.

Fleabag, Killing Eve and A Very English Scandal are also in the running for awards, which celebrate the best in TV.

The ceremony takes place in Los Angeles tonight.
