The 2017 Primetime Emmy Award nominations are finally here!

Anna Chlumsky and Shemar Moore announced the nominees Thursday morning, and the list already has us excited for September's show. The Emmys recognize stellar TV show programming and performances, and what better way to do that than with a mid-week release?

Among the shows that earned the most nominations: Saturday Night Live and Westworld, which earned 22 each; Feud: Bette and Joan and Stranger Things (18 each); Veep scored 17 (Chlumsky herself got a Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series nomination during the announcement); and Fargo and Big Little Lies each got 16.

Big Little Lies co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are set to face off against each other in the Lead Actress in a Limited Series category while Shailene Woodley and Laura Dern are both up for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series. Alexander Skarsgård also earned a nomination for BLL in the Supporting Actor in a Limited Series category.

Keep in mind that if your favorite show didn't make the cut this year (hello, Game of Thrones fans), it might be because of the nomination date range. This year's Emmy Awards focuses on shows and episodes that took place between June 1, 2016, until May 31, 2017, so anything after that is eligible for next year's Emmys.

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards will air live Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, and they'll be hosted by Stephen Colbert.

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Coinage. Life, well spent. Presented by Geico. The first Emmy Awards ceremony was held January 25, 1949. The party was thrown at the Hollywood Athletic Club and tickets cost only $5. Just six awards were handed out that night. The first one was given to ventriloquist, Shirley Dinsdale for the Judy Splinters Show. And name for the award ceremony comes from the word Immy, and image tube in classic TVs. It was soon change to Emmy because of the feminine award There were 47 design proposals for the original statue all of which were rejected. Louis McManus created the award we know today. A woman with wings holding an atom. His design was modeled off of his wife Dorothy and would continue to be the symbol for years to come. Statuettes cost $400 and take five and a half hours to create. Each golden lady is molded then coated in [MUSIC] In copper, nickel, silver, and gold. If you get lucky enough to land your hands on the coveted golden statue, you may have to pay to keep the award. That's right. For some categories where the winners include a large number of people, they have to pay a fee to the television academy. Hector Ramirez, who is a well know camera operator, and Sheila Nevins, the President of HBO Documentary Films. Both hold the record for most Emmy nominations. Out of the 74 nominations, Sheila has the highest number of wins at 31. The late night comedy show Saturday Night Live is currently the most celebrated show in Emmy history, with 209 nominations and 47 wins, it seems like those players were definitely ready for primetime. Coinage, life, well spent, presented by GEICO.
