Depending on who you are, dreams came true or were dashed as the nominees for the 69th annual Emmy Awards were announced today. In the era when 500-plus shows compete for the attention of over 20,000 Academy voters, it’s a true achievement for these shows to receive the recognition they have this morning.

Important note: Both “Game of Thrones” and “Twin Peaks: The Return” will not appear amongst the nominees this year, as neither show will have aired enough episodes during the eligibility period to qualify. Watch out for 2018, though, when both series will be eligible.

The nominees for major categories including Best Drama Series, Best Comedy Series and Best Limited Series were announced live by Anna Chlumsky and Shemar Moore. Check out the list below, and prepare yourself for when the awards are announced on Sunday, September 17, with Stephen Colbert hosting, on CBS.
