Game of Thrones, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Barry topped the nominees for the 71st Emmy Awards, which will air September 22nd on Fox.

Thrones led the pack with 32 total nominations for its eighth and final season. It will compete for Best Drama Series while stars Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington are up for Outstanding Actress and Actor in a Drama Series. The show’s ensemble cast also dominated the supporting actor and actress categories, with Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage all scoring nods in the former, while Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams all notching nominations in the latter.

In order to win its fourth Outstanding Drama trophy, Game of Thrones will have to best Better Call Saul, Bodyguard, Killing Eve, Ozark, Pose, Succession and This Is Us.

Along with Harington, the Outstanding Actor in a Drama nominees include Jason Bateman for Ozark, Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia for This Is Us, Bob Odenkirk for Better Call Saul and Billy Porter for Pose. The Outstanding Actress category features Clarke alongside Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh for Killing Eve, Mandy Moore for This Is Us, Robin Wright for House of Cards, Laura Linney for Ozark and Viola Davis for How to Get Away With Murder.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Barry, meanwhile, lead the comedy categories, nabbing 20 and 17 nominations, respectively. Both are up for Best Comedy alongside Veep, Fleabag, The Good Place, Russian Doll and Schitt’s Creek.

Mrs. Maisel’s Rachel Brosnahan will look to win her second straight Outstanding Actress in a Comedy trophy, though she’ll be up against Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has won the prize six times for each season of Veep and will look to a complete a perfect sweep for her turn in the final season of the political satire. The other outstanding actress nominees are Christina Applegate for Dead to Me, Natasha Lyonne for Russian Doll, Catherine O’Hara for Schitt’s Creek and Phoebe Waller-Bridge for Fleabag.
