Television Academy Chairman and CEO Frank Scherma hosted the announcement, with presenters Ken Jeong (The Masked Singer) and D'Arcy Carden (The Good Place). New faces and a fresh group of shows were prominently recognized in the nominations, together with acclaimed, veteran television programs.

HBO's Game of Thrones secured 32 nominations, the most for any program in a single season, beating a 25-year standing record set by NYPD Blue. Over its eight-season run, the series has received a total of 161 nominations.
