The nominees for the 2016 Emmy Awards were announced yesterday - and heaps of our favourite shows snagged nods!

Game of Thrones once again led the pack with 23 nominations, down from the record-setting 24 nods it received last year. Kit Harrington and Maisie Williams (who play Jon Snow and Arya Stark respectively) both picked up acting nominations for the first time.

The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story was runner-up with 22 nominations - including six noms in acting categories.
