The 2018 Emmy nominations were announced Thursday. Here is the full list of nominees.

Awards season is officially back, even though it feels like it just ended.

The nominees for this year's Emmys were announced on Thursday, and "Game of Thrones" and Netflix led the pack. "Thrones" gained 22 nominations, while Netflix was the leading network with 112 in total.

Both "Better Call Saul" and "House of Cards" were ineligible this year, but "Game of Thrones" returned in full force after missing out on last year's Emmys for its seventh season.

It looks like it could be a battle between HBO's blockbuster fantasy and Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale," which took home the Outstanding Drama Series prize last year.

But don't count out "The Americans," which ended its six season run this year to critical acclaim.

In the comedy race, "Veep" is out of the running this year, leaving it wide open for relative newcomers like "Atlanta" and "Glow" to possibly prevail with their second seasons.

The 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by "SNL's" Colin Jost and Michael Che, will air live September 17 on NBC at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT). from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
