Other best drama contenders? Better Call Saul, Bodyguard, Ozark, and Pose.
In the comedy ranks, HBP’s Veep will try to end its farewell term on a high note.
The show and star Julia Louis Dreyfus will go up against The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which last year won best comedy and best actress for Rachel Brosnahan.
NBC’s The Good Place is also in the best comedy hunt, along with Barry, Fleabag, Russian Doll and Schitt’s creek.
The awards will be handed out on September 22.
