    The 2015 Emmy Award nominations were released this morning, meaning we finally get a look at what is being regarded as the best of primetime television this year. Not surprisingly, Game of Thrones leads the pack with a total of 24 nominations—the show has been nominated for the Outstanding Drama category every year since its first broadcast. Game of Thrones is followed by American Horror: Freak Show and Olive Kitteridge with 19 and 13 nominations, respectively.
