Game of Thrones will have one final chance to achieve Emmy glory as television's best and brightest prepare for this year's US awards ceremony tomorrow.

It has 14 nominations in seven categories.

They include nominations for best drama series plus nods in all four of the drama series acting categories.

The 32 Emmy nominations Game of Thrones received in July was the highest total for any programme in a single year.

The ceremony in Los Angeles will also see Killing Eve stars Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh compete for the best lead actress in a drama award.

More than 25,000 members of the Television Academy vote for the awards, which were first presented in 1949.

The name Emmy derives from an early piece of TV equipment called the image orthicon camera tube, nicknamed the Immy.

The Emmy Awards start at 12pm tomorrow.
