When I Was Nominated: Emmy Awards Edition- Phil Keoghan

Since its release in 2011, Game of Thrones has taken home nearly 40 Emmys in all sorts of categories and has broken the record for the most Emmys awarded to a television series. Anthony Anderson ("Black-ish"), Aziz Ansari ("Master of None"), William H. Macy ("Shameless") and Zach Galifianakis ("Baskets") are also nominated in this category.

Dancing With the Stars' lead choreographer, Mandy Moore took home top honors for her craft on the ABC dancing competition. Going into this year Netflix has only won 21 Emmys, while "Game of Thrones" alone has 38 wins, the all-time series leader. Stephen Colbert is set to host. The awards show will take place Sunday night at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on the final date of what's been a four-month long process. Last year's big victor, HBO's Game of Thrones, was not eligible for Emmy Awards consideration because its latest season aired outside the eligibility window. This year, CBS's "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" picked up three nominations, but after the Creative ARTS Awards late weekend, he's 0 for 2.

"I've never been the host of something that I was also nominated for at the same time and if I don't win the night's a disaster", said Colbert.

In the comedy category, HBO/Sky Atlantic's Veep is the one to watch out for.

Netflix upped its nominations from 54 last year to 91 this year, following HBO closely, which remains at number one with 111 nods. Should Riz win for his critically acclaimed performance in HBO's The Night Of?

And the fact that the Best Drama Series race contains five first-time nominees - Stranger Things, Westworld, The Handmaid's Tale, This Is Us, and The Crown, alongside returning nominees Better Call Saul and House of Cards - is an Emmy record. Just past year, the cast and crew won 12 different Emmys alone.

Melissa McCarthy and Dave Chappelle already won for Outstanding Guest Actress and Actor in a Comedy Series for their appearances on "SNL".
