How to watch: 2019 Emmy nominations to be revealed Tuesday

"Veep" received a total nine nominations for its final season, a warm farewell and one that wasn't to be for "The Big Bang Theory", the long-running sitcom that failed to capture a best comedy nod or any for its actors. HBO has also scored another record this year with 137 nominations, beating Netflix who scored 117 across the board.

HBO's political satire "Veep", which ended its seven-season run in May, will compete for its fourth Emmy as best comedy series, along with star Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the foul-mouthed politician hell-bent on becoming U.S. President.

Game of Thrones will be battling it out to be named best drama alongside Better Call Saul, Bodyguard, Ozark, Pose, Succession, This is Us and Killing Eve. She's competing in a category that's notable for its diversity, including past victor Viola Davis for "How to Get Away with Murder" and repeat nominee Sandra Oh for "Killing Eve", who has a second chance to become the first actress of Asian descent to win the trophy.


The HBO hit series was nominated in many categories, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actress and Outstanding Lead Actor.

They included female-driven BBC America thriller "Killing Eve", which also won nods for stars Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh; dark comedy "Fleabag", from Amazon.com's (AMZN.O) Amazon Studios, which got 11 nominations including for its British creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge; and surreal Netflix time-loop comedy "Russian Doll", written by its star Natasha Lyonne. The first season failed to receive a single mention.

The nominees for best limited series include: "Chernobyl"; "Escape at Dannemora"; "Fosse/Verdon"; "When They See Us" and "Sharp Objects".


Last year's best comedy series, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" led the pack with 20 bids, including for its star and defending champion Rachel Brosnahan.

Leave it to Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts to laugh off an Emmy nomination "snub". This happens to be a matter of great pride for the popular show which came to an end recently in the month of May.

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards will air live Sunday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on Fox.
