With all of the great television out there these days, it sometimes feels overwhelming what shows you’re going to binge and which you’re going to skip (and, we guess, movies, but to a lesser extent—they get the Oscars!). Thankfully, that’s where the Emmy’s come in.

This year’s nominees for the 2016 Emmy Awards were presented Thursday morning by none other than our personal favorite person, Lauren Graham of Parenthood and Gilmore Girls, and black-ish star Anthony Anderson.

As you might expect, Game of Thrones racked up a whopping 23 nominations, the most for any show this year (though, if we’re keeping track, that’s one less nomination than 2015). Last year was also the first time the epic show won an Emmy for Best Outstanding Drama. And P.S., if you want to see Maisie Williams freak out over her nomination, please do. It’s the cutest thing, like, ever.

Other heavy hitters were FX’s cult hit The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and Fargo, and The Americans, because Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys can do no wrong.

We’ll have to wait until September 18 when the Primetime Emmy Awards air on ABC to see how all of our other fave TV shows fare. But until then, it’s time to go back and binge watch some favorites. Check out the list below to see if your top shows made the cut!
