It's that time of the year again: Emmy nominations have been announced ahead of the 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

The big reveals came on Thursday, courtesy of actors Samira Wiley and Ryan Eggold. The two were on hand to announce names, which was perfect for Wiley, because she also got the news that she received a nod in the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series category.

And there you have it as far as the most high-profile categories go, but there are also many others in the creative and technical categories. For those, visit the Emmys website.

There's a lot of stiff competition this year, not to mention co-stars nominated in the same category, so it'll be interesting to see how the competitions shake out. Of course, every year, people talk about shocks and snubs. Do any stand out to you?

The Emmys will air live on Monday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
