The 69th Emmy Awards nominations were announced on Thursday morning, thus signaling the beginning of another Hollywood awards season. As expected, “Big Little Lies” and “The Handmaid’s Tale,” two of the buzziest television series, earned nominations for their lead and supporting actresses Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley and Elisabeth Moss. HBO’s “Westworld” scored nods for Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton and Anthony Hopkins, yet “Game of Thrones” did not. And not surprisingly, “Saturday Night Live” scored an armful of nods for comedians Kate McKinnon, Wanda Sykes, Kristen Wiig and Alec Baldwin. Also likely to draw laughs will be the Sept. 17 awards show, hosted by Stephen Colbert, which airs live on CBS at 5 p.m. Below is a list of the major acting and costume nominees.
