The Primetime EMMY nominations are in! “People vs. OJ Simpson” scored big this season, along with Beyonce who nabbed 4 nominations for her LEMONADE visual album. Come inside to check out the full YBF list of nominees inside…

There DEF won't be an #EmmysSoWhite debacle, because the YBF folks kicked ass and took all the names this year on television.  And there was no ignoring that.

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations were announced today and several of your faves made the list.

“black•ish” star Anthony Anderson was tapped to do the honors of reading the nominations, alongside "Gimore Girls" actress Lauren Graham (are we the only ones secretly excited about the show's comeback on Netflix?!), at the Saban Media Center in North Hollywood this morning. 

And here's the YBF breakdown of nominees:

Limited series “The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story” scored big this year will 22 nominations, including Outstanding Limited Series. The series captivated the nation while telling an inside perspective of the iconic murder trial of former NFL superstar OJ Simpson.  And that ish was GOOD TV.

A few of the main stars in the series copped nominations, including Cuba Gooding Jr. (Outstanding Lead Actor In A Limited Series Or Movie), Courtney B. Vance (Outstanding Lead Actor In A Limited Series Or Movie), and Sterling K. Brown (Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Limited Series Or Movie).

The series came in second only to “Game of Thrones” for the most nominations.  Sweet!

Beyonce inches closer to becoming an EGOT, an acronym for a person who has won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

Mrs. Carter copped 4 Primetime EMMY nominations for her LEMONADE visual album in the Outstanding Directing, Outstanding Picture Editing, Outstanding Production Design, and Outstanding Variety Special categories. Fun Fact: It's the first directing nomination for the singer.

If she wins, the “Formation” singer will have completed half of an EGOT. She already has a slew of GRAMMY Awards, so an EMMY will just bring her one step closer.

“Empire” star Taraji P. Henson and “How To Get Away With Murder” star Viola Davis will go head-to-head in the Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series category once again.

“black•ish” star Tracee Ellis Ross was nominated for her first EMMY in the Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series for her portrayal as Rainbow Johnson in the hit ABC comedy. Meanwhile, her co-star Anthony Anderson was nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series.

“Confirmation” star Kerry Washington, who’s currently pregnant with her second child, and “Lady Day” actress Audra McDonald both copped nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie category.

Bokeem Woodbine (remember him from "Crookyln" and "Dead Presidents"?!) -- just landed his FIRST nomination for "Fargo."  Nice!
