Nominees for the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards were unveiled Thursday morning in West Hollywood, California, by "Orange Is the New Black" star Uzo Aduba and Cat Deely of "So You Think You Can Dance" (who also learned they are both nominees this year).

The final season of AMC's hit "Mad Men," Netflix's "House of Cards," and Amazon's new transgender comedy "Transparent" are among this year's big contenders.

Series and acting performances are Emmy-eligible if they aired between June 1, 2014 and May 31, 2015.

Emmy winners will be announced on Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. ET in a ceremony airing live from Los Angeles on Fox.

This year's Emmys host, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star Andy Samberg, promises for a wild ride. "Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers!" he said about the upcoming telecast.
