Emmys 2016: TV's top award nominations will be revealed July 14

SGN A&E Writer

            In a season with only a handful of major breakthroughs, expect to see a lot of familiar names when nominations for the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards are announced July 14 by co-presenters Anthony Anderson (Black-ish) and Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life). But there is still room for a few newcomers, thanks to the departures last year of Parks and Recreation and Mad Men, opening up slots for best comedy and drama series, respectively, as well as vacancies in the leading and supporting acting fields. Mr. Robot, Billions, Master of None, Mozart in the Jungle and the much-deserved spy series The Americans are hoping to get some noticeability early Thursday morning.
            LGBT actors and directors, from Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) to Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story: Hotel, The People vs. O.J. Simpson, Scream Queens) to Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) are all in contention again, as are Alan Cumming (The Good Wife) and Sarah Paulson, the clear frontfronner for Lead Actress-TV Movie or Mini-Series for her brilliant portrayal of Marcia Clark in The People vs. O.J. Simpson; she's also a potential Supporting Actress-TV Movie or Mini-Series nominee for her performance in American Horror Story: Hotel.
