'Game Of Thrones' Emmys: 16 Nominations For The HBO Series

Posted: Updated:
"Game Of Thrones" Emmy Nominations: HBO series scores 16 nods. | HBO

The Emmy nominations are in, and "Game Of Thrones" came out on top.

The HBO series, based on the book series by George R.R. Martin, nabbed 16 nominations on Thursday morning including Outstanding Drama, Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama (Peter Dinklage), Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama (first-time nominee Emilia Clarke), Outstanding Guest Actress In A Drama (Diana Rigg) and more.

The series was nominated for 11 awards last year and took home six for behind-the-scenes work, but its lack of wins for the big categories has left fans and some critics frustrated (particularly for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Michelle Fairley). Thought neither one of them are up for Emmys this year, could the 2013 Emmys mean gold for "Game of Thrones"?

The 2013 Emmys air on on Sun., Sept 22 on CBS.
