LOS ANGELES >> “Game of Thrones” and “Veep” are among the top contenders for the 68th Primetime Emmy nominations.

The shows claimed the top drama and comedy series prizes at last year’s Emmys. They’ll find out if they made the cut when this year’s nods are announced Thursday morning in Los Angeles.

Academy voters will get the chance to show if they can keep pace with TV’s increasing diversity. Among the possible contenders include the TV sitcom “black-ish,” the transgender comedy “Transparent” and the Asian-American family comedy “Fresh Off the Boat.”

Viola Davis, who last year became the first woman of color to win for drama series actress, likely will be nominated again for “How to Get Away with Murder.”

The nominations will be announced live on Emmys.com at 11:30 a.m. EDT.
