It’s officially time for Hollywood and Seventh Avenue to begin gearing up for awards season.

On Thursday morning, Aaron Paul and Neil Patrick Harris announced nominees for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards. There were few surprises among the acting categories this year, though Netflix newcomer “House of Cards” earned nods for leads Robin Wright and Kevin Spacey and “Homeland’s” Morena Baccarin earned her first nomination. The suspense will likely be greater to see who will wear what. The awards, hosted by Harris, will air Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
