American Horror Story: Freak Show, Empire, Orange is the New Black and many more TV faves have landed 2015 Emmy nominations.

Presenters Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black) and Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance) were the announcers this morning, reading off this year’s nominees (and adorably finding out that they were among them).

Game of Thrones led the pack with 24 nominations, while my personal obsession, American Horror Story‘s Freak Show installment earned an impressive 19 noms, including another for Jessica Lange. Taraji P. Henson landed her first nomination for r Outstanding Lead Actress for a Drama Series, thanks to her standout performance as Cookie Lyon in FOX’s new hit series Empire.
