The 70th Emmy Awards nominations were announced on Thursday morning, and another Hollywood awards season has begun, full of fashion first-timers and fresh faces mixed in with the OG A-List, which should make for an interesting red carpet.

As expected, “Game of Thrones” and “The Crown” earned nods for Brit actors Lena Headey, Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, Claire Foy, Matt Smith, Vanessa Kirby and Matthew Goode, while “The Handmaid’s Tale” lead Elisabeth Moss and her supporting cast also scored nominations. The real-life fashion dramatization “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” earned nods for its toplining cast including Penélope Cruz as Donatella Versace, Édgar Ramírez as Gianni Versace and Darren Criss as Andrew Cunanan. Breakout star Rachel Brosnahan — Kate Spade’s niece — also earned a nod for her title role as “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” “Westworld” also was recognized for its lead performers Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and Ed Harris, as well as Jimmi Simpson, who plays the younger version of Harris’ character.

Sandra Oh made history as the first Asian-American actress to score a lead nod for “Killing Eve” and Issa Rae, Zazie Beetz, Donald Glover and Samira Wiley were among the diverse fresh faces gaining recognition this year. And not surprisingly, “Saturday Night Live” scored an armful of nods for comedians including Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Alec Baldwin.

The laughs will likely continue at the Monday — not Sunday — Sept. 17 awards telecast, hosted by “Saturday Night Live” “Weekend Update” co-anchors Michael Che and Colin Jost. The show airs live from the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live on NBC from 5 to 8 p.m. PT/8 to 11 p.m. ET. “SNL” creator Lorne Michaels will executive produce the awards special.
