It's been a very good morning for Anthony Anderson. The actor joined Lauren Graham to announce the nominees for this year's Emmy Awards, and found himself among the nominees for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, alongside black-ish (Outstanding Comedy Series) and costar Tracee Ellis Ross (Outstanding Lead Actress). Now that's a hat trick.

Despite a few notable snubs, overall the nominations reflected a diverse cross-section of Hollywood. Old favorites like Homeland and the now-retired Downton Abbey will battle it out against the likes of Master of None, American Crime, Mr. Robot, and The Night Manager. Tom Hiddleston also earned a nomination, while The Americans is finally getting its due. Welcome to the party, voters.
