The 71st Emmy nominations were announced on Tuesday morning.

Thanks to the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race and host RuPaul Charles, the VH1 series racked up more than 10 Emmy nominations on Tuesday morning.

Trevor Noah’s late-night presence on The Daily Show and Viacom’s multiple Paramount Network series helped Viacom nab more than 25 nominations as a company. But while VH1 and Comedy Central made out big, Nickelodeon also earned a nomination for SpongeBob SquarePants as the lovable sponge celebrates his 20th birthday this month. Newcomers like Catch-22 on Amazon and Awesomeness TV's PEN15 also landed nominations.

The awards will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sept. 22.
