Live from New York, it's... a whole lot of Emmy nominations.

The 69th Primetime Emmy Award nominations were revealed Thursday morning and leading this year's pack are NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and HBO's "Westworld," with 22 each.

Other shows earning multiple nominations include "Better Call Saul," "House of Cards," and "Stranger Things," with all three scoring Best Drama mentions. In the Best Actor in a Drama category, "Ray Donovan's" Liev Schreiber faces off against Bob Odenkirk ("Better Call Saul"), Kevin Spacey ("House of Cards"), and Anthony Hopkins ("Westworld"), among others. Robin Wright of "House of Cards," meanwhile, is up against Evan Rachel Wood ("Westworld"), Elisabeth Moss ("The Handmaid's Tale"), and others for Best Actress in a Drama Series.

Nominees in the Best Comedy Series category include "Veep," "Master of None," "Atlanta," and "Silicon Valley," among others. "Veep's" Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep") is also nominated in the Best Actress in a Comedy category, where the former "Seinfeld" standout is looking to win her sixth straight Emmy.

"SNL's" Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and (former cast member) Vanessa Bayer are competing against each other for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, among others. Recent "SNL" standout Alec Baldwin has also been recognized, with his season-long turn as President Donald Trump earning him a Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series nod.

When Alec visited the Stern Show in April he talked about both his appreciation for McKinnon as well as about what goes into his Trump performance. "You're trying to bite the face off of the person in front of you," he told Howard, adding "the wig is everything. Once they put the wig on you, you're home." Listen to the full interview here.

"Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee secured two nominations, including one for her "Not The White House Correspondents' Dinner," which Stern Show staffers JD Harmeyer and Gary Dell'Abate memorably attended earlier this year.

Lady Gaga's high-flying Super Bowl LI Halftime Show—which included a stirring rendition of "Million Reasons"—secured a record six Emmy nominations, including for Outstanding Special Class Program. When the pop star sat down with Howard last October she spoke all about the inspiration for "Million Reasons" and even performed an incredible version in the Stern Show studio. Listen to her performance and the full interview here.

"Late Show" star and 2015 Stern Show guest Stephen Colbert will host the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, airing live Sunday, Sept. 17 on CBS.
