The show is nominated for Outstanding Special Class Program, where it will compete against the likes of the Academy Awards telecast, the Tony Awards and Hairspray Live!  It also received nominations for production design, lighting design, sound mixing, technical direction and musical direction.

On Twitter, Gaga wrote, “I’m so proud of Haus of Gaga & the entire #SBHalftime team! We’re so grateful to be nominated for 6 @TheEmmys the most ever! Thank you!!”
