LOS ANGELES, (Reuters) - It's an honor just to be nominated for an Emmy given the more than 400 scripted TV shows broadcast or streamed on U.S. television in a year, but only a few will take home a Primetime Emmy Award on Sunday.

Here are four key races to be decided at Sunday's award show which will be broadcast on Fox at 8 pm ET.


The biggest prize in the TV industry looks like a close race between "Mad Men" and "Game of Thrones."

"Mad Men" - the 1960s advertising show ended in May. If it wins on Sunday, it will make Emmy history as the winningest drama ever, with a record five victories.

"Game of Thrones" - the fantasy series based on the books of George R.R. Martin has a huge fan base and a leading 24 nominations overall. It has never won the top award in four years on the air.

Last year's winner: "Breaking Bad."
