The Iron Throne could be worth a lot of gold statues soon.

The Emmys are all about celebrating television’s greatest everything; from actors to writing to the person who probably mops up way too much fake blood, there’s a lot of potential for the best to go home with some awards. It seems that for 2016, though, one little show about dragons and naked ladies may have the most opportunities.

As reported by Variety, HBO’s Game of Thrones 23 Emmy nominations for its sixth season. As the show is getting closer and closer to its conclusion, it’s no surprise that that particular season brought a lot of big moments and even bigger action. What seems crazier is that it’s actually less than the year before, with 24 in 2015.

Other shows with heavy nomination numbers include The People Vs. O.J. Simpson (22), Fargo (18), and Veep (17), another HBO Original. We look forward to seeing how the high-fantasy epic takes on its competition.
