Game of Thrones and Veep are expected to be top contenders in Tuesday's Emmy nominations announcement. The two HBO series that ended in recent months are already favorites to win in the top categories of Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Comedy Series respectively at September's show. Other shows like Killing Eve, Pose, Succession, and This Is Us are likely to join Game of Thrones in the drama category, while the comedy category should be rounded out by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Barry, Fleabag, GLOW, and The Good Place. Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge is thought to have a shot at a lead actress in a comedy series nod, although Veep's Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a shoo-in to win.
