Awards Nominations: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Transparent,’ ‘Veep’ Lead Series

It’s been a whirlwind of nominations over the last few days, with Hollywood’s biggest awards groups unveiling their own lists of the best series on television. And each has brought their own idiosyncratic flair to their lists — from the Golden Globes crowning the streaming services to the Screen Actors Guild shunning newcomers in favor of old favorites like “Mad Men.”

So Variety did a little number-crunching: tallying the number of nominations across the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild, the Writers Guild and the Producers Guild. (Note: The Critics’ Choice nominations are not included because of the org’s abbreviated eligibility season.) And the Directors Guild has yet to unveil their awards for this season.

That’s how we came up with our own list of winners. HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and “Veep” and Amazon’s “Transparent” top the list of the most-nominated series across all awards with seven nominations. AMC’s “Better Call Saul” and “Mad Men” followed with six each, along with breakout hit “Mr. Robot” (USA), which has established itself as an awards contender in its freshman season.

As for networks, HBO is firmly atop the leaderboard with 30 nods overall, but rival Netflix is proving itself a worthy contender with 22. ABC is representing for the broadcast nets, thanks to the critical success of “American Crime” and Viola Davis on “How to Get Away With Murder.”
