The biggest night in TV officially has its contenders.

Orange Is the New Black star Uzo Aduba and So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley revealed the nominees for the 67th Annual Emmy Awards – and earned nods themselves: Deeley for outstanding host of a reality or reality competition program, and Aduba for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series.

Orange Is the New Black fared well despite being reclassified as a drama this year: Besides Aduba’s honor, the Netflix show was nominated in the outstanding drama and guest actor categories.

Mad Men also got plenty of love from voters for its curtain call (the second half of its final season aired in 2015). The AMC show was nominated for outstanding drama and writing, while Jon Hamm was nominated for lead actor, Elisabeth Moss for lead actress and Christina Hendricks for supporting actress.

Meanwhile, three late-night shows with departing hosts – Late Show with David Letterman, The Colbert Report and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart – were recognized for outstanding variety talk series.

And though the winner of the war over control of Westeros remains unknown, [LINK” “” “” “0” ] is the undisputed victor, with a whopping total of 126 nominations – more than any other program.
