"Veep" actress Anna Chlumsky and "Criminal Minds" and "SWAT" star Shemar Moore presented the nominations for major categories for the 69th Emmy Awards on Thursday. "Saturday Night Live" and "Westworld" got the most nominations, with 22 each. 

The actors read the nods from the Wolf Theatre at the Television Academy's Saban Media Center in North Hollywood, with one interruption.

Moore paused the announcement for a surprise: "Oh this is fun, oh yeah," he said as Chlumsky tried to peek over his shoulder. "Get out of my Kool-Aid!"

"Congratulations on her fifth consecutive Emmy nomination for outstanding supporting actress for 'Veep,' none other than my sweetheart right here," he said, referring to Chlumsky.

"Thank you, phew," she responded.
