John Legend could step one closer to getting an EGOT with his nomination for "Jesus Christ Superstar" and, despite the show being canceled, Laurie Metcalf scored a nom for "Roseanne." The series also picked up one additional nom for editing. Anthony Bourdain was also honored posthumously with two nominations for "Parts Unknown," while the show itself picked up 6 noms.

When it comes to late-night, NBC was shut out when it came to their programs, with "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and "Late Night with Seth Meyers" getting snubbed, while Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden, Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, John Oliver and Samantha Bee all got noms.
