Netflix shows, HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ lead the pack of Emmy nominees

Rachel Brosnahan The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Netflix shows, HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ lead the pack of Emmy nominees

Its fellow HBO drama Westworld had 21 nominations this year, as did Saturday Night Live.

Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" scored 20 nominations - seven better than previous year - and is an early favorite to repeat as the victor for best drama in September.

The Emmy awards will be handed out in Los Angeles on September 17 hosted by "Saturday Night Live" cast members Michael Che and Colin Jost.

But it was "Thrones" that set the Emmys pace with its seventh season, which aired last summer, earning recognition for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage and Diana Rigg.

This marks Danson's 13th career Emmy nomination, but his first for The Good Place.

The actresses who squeezed Kidman and Watts out of the supporting actress in a limited series category were: Adina Porter (American Horror Story: Cult); Penelope Cruz and Judith Light (The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story); Letitia Wright (Black Museum); Merritt Wever (Godless); and Sara Bareilles (Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert).

The most nominated show was HBO's "Game of Thrones" with 22, followed by NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and HBO's "Westworld".

A slew of first time Emmy contenders included Sandra Oh as the first Asian-American lead comedy actress nominee for her role in quirky spy series "Killing Eve", and Rachel Brosnahan's 1950s housewife turned comedian in "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Atlanta itself was nominated for the Emmy for a Comedy Series.

In the best drama series category, there's a decent chance the award goes to a show written by someone Jewish.

"GLOW" star Alison Brie wasn't nominated for her work on the Netflix series, in which she plays a struggling actress who joins a TV show focusing on women's wrestling. And during Thursday's 2018 Emmy nominations announcement, it was revealed that it's been nominated for 22 more, including Best Drama Series, Best Directing for a Drama Series and Best Writing for a Drama Series.

HBO came second with 108 nominations. It was not in the running in 2017.
