HBO's fantasy epic "Game of Thrones" led the field for television's prestigious Primetime Emmy awards on Thursday, with a whopping 22 nominations, including one for best drama series.

There was also an added bonus for Wiley-she landed her second Emmy nomination for Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her Hulu series.
