'Game of Thrones' has received a record-breaking 32 Emmy Award nominations.

The Northern Ireland fantasy series is up for Outstanding Drama Series - as well as awards for sound, visual effects, costume, make-up and casting.

The show has beaten a 25-year record for the most nominations, set by 'NYPD Blue'.

Irish actor Chris O'Dowd also gets a nomination for his role in 'State of the Union'.

On the news, he said he was "particularly pleased for me."

'Game of Thrones' was followed by 'The Marvelous Mrs Maisel' (20), 'Chernobyl' (19), 'Saturday Night Live' (18), 'Barry' (17), 'Fosse/Verdon' (17) and 'When They See Us' (16) for the most nominations.

Among seven Outstanding Comedy Series nominees, there are four first-timers - including 'Fleabag', which stars Irish actors Andrew Scott and Fiona Shaw.
