Random question about Emmys and Game of Thrones

Emmy nominees are out! Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) and Diana Rigg (Lady Olenna!!!—my heart sings with joy) got nominated.

Here is my question: how does nomination work for an ensemble cast like GoT? If I'm not mistaken, Peter Dinklage is the top-billed actor on the show since Sean Bean left the cast. How is it that he gets a Supporting Actor nomination? Who would be the main actor?

This has been tickling my brain for a while now.
