Game of Thrones has slashed its way to historic 32 Emmy Award nominations, including for best drama series, for its eighth and final season, with Canadians also among those in the running in top Emmy categories.

The bloodthirsty saga GoT eclipsed the all-time series record of 27 nods earned by NYPD Blue in 1994.

The showing by Game of Thrones led HBO back to dominance over Netflix, the streaming service that bumped it last year from its longtime Emmy dominance.

The nominees for best drama series are:

  • Better Call Saul
  • Bodyguard
  • Game of Thrones
  • Killing Eve
  • Ozark
  • Pose
  • Succession
  • This is Us

Schitt’s Creek is a best comedy nominee.

The nominees for best comedy series are: 

  • Barry
  • Fleabag
  • The Good Place
  • The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
  • Russian Doll
  • Schitt’s Creek
  • Veep

Schitt’s Creek is among several Canadian nominees. Along with best comedy series, it earned nominations for actors Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara. Sandra Oh is also an Emmy nominee once again, competiting for best actress in a drama series for Killing Eve.

The 71st Emmy Awards will air Sept. 22 on Fox, with the host yet to be announced.
