LOS ANGELES — The fantasy saga Game of Thrones emerged as the leader in the nominations announced Thursday with 19 bids, including best drama series.

The meth kingpin drama Breaking Bad was next in line with 16 bids for its final season, including best drama and best actor nod for star Bryan Cranston.

Other top nominees included a pair of ambitious miniseries, Fargo, with 18 bids, and American Horror Story: Coven, with 17. The AIDS drama The Normal Heart received 16 nominations, including best TV movie.

In the competitive best-drama series category, Game of Thrones will compete with Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, House of Cards, Mad Men and True Detective.

Netflix's House of Cards, which made a breakthough last year as the first online series nominated for a major award, has the chance again to grab Emmy gold.

True Detective, the dark-hearted Southern drama that starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, was entered in the series category although it had a close-ended story and its stars have indicated they don't plan on returning.

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards will be presented Aug. 25 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, hosted by Seth Meyers and airing live on NBC.
