Emmys 2019: 'Game of Thrones,' 'Veep' get final nominations, 'Big Bang Theory,' 'Modern Family' shut out

"Game of Thrones," "The Big Bang Theory" and "Veep" all vied for Emmy nominations for their swan song seasons, and "Veep" and "Game of Thrones" came out victorious over the long-running CBS nerd-themed sitcom.

When the Emmy nominations were released Tuesday, the HBO fantasy saga — plagued by awkward editing blunders and negative fan reactions to its finale — was announced to be in the running for television's top honor for its eighth and last season. "Game of Thrones" has previously won three Top Drama Series trophies, including at the 2018 Emmys.

'GAME OF THRONES' STAR LENA HEADEY REVEALS A DELETED SCENE COULD HAVE CHANGED EVERYTHING IN FINALE

Emilia Clarke earned her first best drama actress nomination after earning a trio of supporting nominations for her role of Daenerys Targaryen, with Kit Harington earning a nod for his turn as Jon Snow. Four of the six nominees for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series were from "Game of Thrones," with Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Lena Headey and Gwendoline Christie each getting a nod.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus nabbed a nod for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for "Veep."

Other drama series vying for top honors at September's awards include "Killing Eve," ''Pose," ''Bodyguard," ''Ozark" and "This Is Us," the NBC drama that could be the sole broadcast series to earn a top bid.

"Veep," which holds a trio of best comedy series Emmys, is in the hunt for its final trophies after wrapping its seven-season run.

"The Big Bang Theory," which ended this year after 12 seasons, was shut out of acting nominations (though they earned directing and editing nods), as was "Modern Family," which will air its final season this year.

"Barry," ''Fleabag" and 2018 winner "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" were all nominated.
