Game of Thrones missed out on the Emmy nominations deadline

There were some surprises and shocks during this year's nominations with several well-known shows getting snubbed.

Last year Game of Thrones led the nominations for the 68th annual Emmy Awards, scoring a staggering 23 nods. However, this year the popular HBO show missed out on the eligibility period to be considered for an award.

To qualify for the 2017 Emmys a show had to air episodes between June 1, 2016 and May 31, 2017. The seventh season of Game of Thrones will not premiere until next week.

This is the first time since 2011 that Game of Thrones is not among the year's Emmy contenders.

Jimmy Fallon wasn't nominated for an Emmy

It was also bad news for Tonight With Jimmy Fallon, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Insecure, The Good Fight, The Big Bang Theory, Mr. Robot and The Young Pope, with none of the shows receiving any nominations.

The 69th annual Emmy Awards, hosted by Stephen Colbert, are set to air live from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theatre on September 17.
