Here's A List Of All The Emmy Nominees Ahead Of Tonight's Awards

In case you don’t like the Sunday Night Football matchup tonight or you’re just in dire need of a killer for your Sunday Scaries, The Emmys are tonight. It’s like The Oscars for television shows, which means it’s a little more fun because everyone knows that movie people are much more pretentious than television people.

Below is the full list of what to look out for, which I assume most of you just want “Game of Thrones” to win everything.
