Emmy season is officially in full swing. On Thursday, the Television Academy is announcing the nominations for the 2017 Emmy Awards.
This year's ceremony is especially exciting for TV fans since they were even more in the dark than usual when it came to predicting the nominees due to many ineligibilities.
In addition to defending champ Tatiana Maslany being ineligible for Orphan Black in this year's race, Game of Thrones' delayed premiere means it also won't be a part of the 2017 nominations. Game of Thrones not being eligible will affect the drama categories across the board, but will make things particularly exciting for the drama supporting actress category.
Last year, three of the six supporting actress nominees were from Thrones. But now, without Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey and Maisie Williams in the running, there's a good chance we'll see some exciting fresh blood finally get recognized. Plus, Emmys staple Maggie Smith, who won the category last year, will also not be competing since Downton Abbey ended in 2016.
So who did make the cut? Check back for the full list of nominees!
The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards airs Sunday, Sept. 17 at 8/7c on CBS.
