TV's biggest night is on the way and this year's nominees are hotter than ever.

From HBO Max's provocative teen drama to Netflix's breakout hit series, a few fan-favorite shows got more than one mention.

And while a few stars were received their first ever – and probably long-overdue – nominations, there were some were shockingly snubbed.

Squid Games made history as the first non-English language show to score a spot in the Outstanding Drama Series category while also racking up 14 nominations in total.

Meanwhile, though Stranger Things Season 4 Volume One may have been a complete bloodbath, the show has earned 13 nominations.

But stars Millie Bobbie Brown and Sadie Sink, who respectively play Eleven/Jane and Max Mayfield – and who basically carried the latest season – were shockingly left out!

Another honorable mention goes to Sydney Sweeney, who's memorable performance as the unstable Cassie Howard in Euphoria landed her two Emmy noms.

Elsewhere, Sweeney's costar Zendaya, who plays the drug-addicted main character Rue, also made history as youngest woman ever nominated for producing, as well as the youngest two-time lead acting nominee.

As we've been arguing all along, give her a damn Emmy already!
