Netflix has received more nominations for Emmy Awards than HBO, breaking the TV network's 17-year streak, TechCrunch reported.

First-year comedies had the best showing in the comedy series category in nearly two decades, with three nominees, Amazon/Prime Video'sThe Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, HBO's Barry, and Netflix's GLOW.

Netflix gathered 112 nods for shows that ranged from supernatural drama "Stranger Things" and British royal show "The Crown" to female wrestling comedy "GLOW", new Western drama "Godless" and reality makeover series "Queer Eye".

John Legend scores a nomination of his own for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his role as Jesus in NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert".

While other streaming services didn't do as well as Netflix did, Hulu was nominated for 27 awards, and Amazon Prime was right behind them at 22 - most of which are from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The show about noble families vying for the Iron Throne faces tough competition from perennial favorite comedy sketch show "Saturday Night Live" and HBO stablemate "Westworld" with 21 nominations each.

"Maisel", Amazon Studios' popular series set in a very Jewish 1950s NY neighborhood, was nominated for best comedy series.

"I feel tremendous gratitude and joy with this nomination" and am "thrilled" for the show's cast and crew, Oh said in a statement.

The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16.

Add up all the award nominations and Netflix is now the top Emmy nominated "network", a term that we can now apply in the loosest of terms. "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied".

"Games of Thrones" got 22 nods, including for the top prize of best drama series. Only one nominations category is all-white, and in three categories minority actors account for more than half the nominees.

All three Lannister siblings were also recognized, with Lena Headey earning her fourth Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role as Cersei while her on-screen brothers Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) picked up Best Supporting Actor nods.

Speaking of SNL nods: Chance The Rapper was nominated in the Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics category for his performance on the late night show in November of 2017.
