HOLLYWOOD—HBO’s runaway hit “Chernobyl” captured 19 nominations in the 71st annual Emmy Awards, including for the best television movie or limited series category.

The series’ actor Jared Harris also scored a nomination in the lead actor category in a limited series or TV movie.

Rounding up the total of four nominations for “Chernobyl” actors are Emily Watson for best supporting actress in limited series and Stellan Skarsgard for best supporting actor in the same category.

For the top prize “Chernobyl” will have four competitors: “Escape at Dannemora” (Showtime); “Fosse/Verdon” (FX); “Sharp Objects” (HBO) and “When They See Us” (Netflix).

In the final voting Harris’ competitors will be Mahershala Ali of “True Detective”; Benicio Del Toro of “Escape at Dannemora”; Hugh Grant of “A Very English Scandal”; Jharrel Jerome “When They See Us” and Sam Rockwell of “Fosse/Verdon.”

Although “Chernobyl” has been scoring higher numbers in the ratings, it will not be competing with “Game of Thrones” since they are not in the same category. “Thrones” scored a whopping 32 nominations in the continuing drama series category.

The nominations were announced Tuesday by the American Television Academy in Hollywood with the 2019 Emmy Awards to be presented on Sept. 22.
