American Horror Story's Jessica Lange gets a Lead Actress nomination

American Horror Story: Asylum has led the way in the Emmy 2013 nominations list, picking up a total of 17 nominations.

Jessica Lange received up a much-deserved nod in the 'Lead Actress in a TV Miniseries or Movie' category for the FX horror series, while it was also nominated for the 'Outstanding Miniseries or Movie' award.

Following closely behind in the list was HBO's Game of Thrones, which garnered a total of 16 nominations, including the categories 'Best Drama Series' and 'Best Supporting Actor and Actress In A Drama Series' for its stars Peter Dinklage and Emilia Clarke.

Game of Thrones will compete against Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Homeland, House of Cards and Mad Men to take home the coveted 'Best Drama Series' gong.

The 'Outstanding Comedy Series' category is equally competitive, with Veep, Modern Family, Louie, Big Bang Theory, 30 Rock and Girls up for the award.

The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards, which will be hosted by How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris, will take place on Sunday, September 22 in Los Angeles.
