LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Latest on the 69th annual Primetime Emmy nominations announced Thursday in Los Angeles by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (all times local):

10:10 a.m.

It looked like the Emmy nominations presentation might have an Oscars moment on its hands Thursday morning.

Instead, a gold envelope that arrived in Shemar Moore's hands during Thursday morning's announcement ceremony was to announce co-presenter Anna Chlumsky had been nominated for best supporting actress for her role on "Veep." It is Chlumsky's fifth Emmy nomination in a row in the category.

The actors had fun with the moment, with Moore refusing to show Chlumsky the envelope's contents in an apparent riff on the Academy Awards' best picture snafu.

Moore says he knew a surprise was coming, but didn't know it would arrive via an envelope. He says it mirrors another onstage moment for him. Morore says, "I mean the last time I did something like that for anybody, I gave Susan Lucci her first Emmy after 19 tries and they gave her a five minute standing ovation."

Chlumsky says she's skeptical she'll be nominated every year, but is honored to receive a nod for the fifth year in row.

She is competing against three "Saturday Night Live" actresses: Vanessa Bayer, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

Chlumsky says about this year's comedy nominees, which includes co-star Julia Louis-Dreyfus for best comedy actress: "It's an embarrassment of riches, as it feels like every year, but I think they got a lot right this year."

1 a.m.

The 69th Emmy Award nominations could answer some big TV industry questions.

When the nominees are announced Thursday in Los Angeles, NBC's "This is Us" has a chance to show network dramas can still be Emmy worthy.

A broadcast network hasn't fielded a best drama series contender since CBS' "The Good Wife" was nominated in 2011.

Instead, cable and streaming have dominated the field, and could again.

Streaming has an opening to dominate, with HBO's blockbuster "Game of Thrones" falling outside the eligibility window.

Likely streaming nominees include Netflix's "The Crown" and "Stranger Things" and Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale."

The comedy contenders include ABC's "black-ish," Netflix's "Master of None" and FX's "Atlanta."

The Emmy Awards will air Sept. 17 on CBS with host Stephen Colbert.
