Jodie Comer, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Emilia Clarke have all been nominated at the 2019 Emmy Awards.

Game Of Thrones star Kit Harington and A Very English Scandal’s Hugh Grant were also nominated, but there was disappointment for Bodyguard actor Richard Madden.

Bafta winner Comer was recognised for her turn as psychopathic assassin Villanelle in Killing Eve, and is up against her co-star Sandra Oh for outstanding drama actress.
