This year has been a fantastic one for the small screen and the 2017 Emmy nominations show it. While there were some definite snubs, like Freddie Highmore for Bates Motel, Insecure, American Gods, and The Leftovers, almost every category is full of strong contenders—truly, almost any nominee could take their category, especially as this is the first year Game of Thrones is ineligible due to its mid-summer premiere date, leaving the field wide open. From newcomers like Stranger Things, to seemingly permanent picks like Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Veep, the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted this year by Stephen Colbert, will honor the best of the best in television.

We'll be updating this list throughout the night as winners are announced with the most recent winners at the top in bold.
