Some of TV's biggest stars, as well as headline-grabbing shows, failed to get nominations this year.

"We are pleased to have these two talented performers join us to announce this year's Emmy nominees and to celebrate television excellence".

In the heavyweight drama category, "Game of Thrones" will vie against "The Crown", the final season of "The Americans", "Stranger Things", "This is Us", "Westworld", and last year's victor, "The Handmaid's Tale".

Other actresses competing for the Supporting Actress award include Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) and Thandie Newton (Westworld).

"Game of Thrones" was out of the running in 2017 because the show aired later than usual.

Speaking to Vulture, Yvonne said she was thrilled about earning her first Emmys nod.

Leading the nominations in totals by platform were Netflix (112), leapfrogging last year's leader HBO, which scored 108.

Glover lands four nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for his work in FX's "Atlanta", which is this year's most-nominated comedy series with 16 nominations.

Nicole Kidman missed out on an Emmy nomination for her performance in Top of the Lake: China Girl.

Lead actress drama takes last year's victor Elisabeth Moss for "The Handmaid's Tale" with Claire Foy, "The Crown"; Tatiana Maslany, "Orphan Black"; Sandra Oh, "Killing Eve"; Keri Russell, "The Americans"; and Evan Rachel Wood for "Westworld".

The 70th Emmy Awards will telecast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Sunday, September 17 (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT) on NBC.
