Niecy Nash and Aunjanue Ellis are also getting some recognition for their rolls in When They See Us with nominations in Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.

Meanwhile, Billy Porter received his first nomination for Pose in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, joining Sterling K. Brown for This Is Us and Kit Harrington for Game of Thrones. 

Lead Actress in a Drama Series is occupied by powerhouse actresses like Viola Davis for How to Get Away with Murder and Sandra Oh for Killing Eve. Meanwhile, Anthony Anderson gets a nod once again for his role in Black-ish.

One of the biggest awards of the night, Best Drama Series, includes hit shows like Game of Thrones, Killing Eve, This Is Us and Pose. Game of Thrones leads the nominations this year with a record-setting 32 nods!
