Los Angeles - Amy Poehler, Maggie Gyllenhaal and LL Cool J are among the presenters at this year's Emmy Awards.

They will be joined by celebrities including TV presenter Jimmy Kimmel and Empire stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard to hand out awards at the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

Game of Thrones leads the nominations with a staggering 24 nods.

The fantasy drama series has the most chance of triumphing at the forthcoming ceremony thanks to its huge number of places on the shortlists - including being up for the coveted Outstanding Drama Series prize alongside Better Call Saul, Downton Abbey, Homeland, House of Card' and Mad Men - with American Horror: Freak Show and 'Olive Kitteridge' following behind with 19 and 13 nominations respectively.

As Game of Thrones has an ensemble cast, it didn't have any nominations in the Lead Actor or Actress categories, but stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey and Emilia Clarke are up for supporting role prizes.

Elsewhere, The Big Bang Theory was a surprise omission from the Outstanding Comedy Series category, leaving Louie, Modern Family, Parks and Recreation, Silicon Valley, Transparent, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Veep to fight it out for the prize.

Andy Samberg will host the 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on 20 September.
