Emmys 2018: Game Of Thrones Leads With 22 Nominations

Netflix just broke HBO's 17-year streak as the network with the most Emmy nominations - the streaming service was nominated for a whopping 112 awards at this year's ceremony while HBO sits at a still-respectable 108.

However, there were a number of others who were nominated for the first time for longer-running shows.

Netflix is in a spending war with traditional television companies, pledging to invest up to $13 billion in original content next year, compared with $2.5 billion by HBO and $4 billion by the traditional giant CBS.

On the comedy side, "Veep" and its star are on an extended hiatus, so this category is wide open for "Atlanta", "Barry", "black-ish", "Curb Your Enthusiasm, "GLOW", "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", "Silicon Valley" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".

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

CNN's "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown", received a nomination in the category for best information series or special, which also includes shows with Leah Remini and David Letterman.

However, "GLOW" has two other nominations, including "Outstanding Comedy Series" and "Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series".

It was a deep year of nominations for minority performers, who accounted for over one-third of Thursday's acting nominees. If he wins, he will earn the coveted EGOT, having previously won a Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.

Saturday Night Live's Michael Che and Colin Jost will co-host 70th Emmy Awards, airing live on Monday, Sept. 17, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

The fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year. Although it's up for top series honours, it drew only three supporting actor bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.

Markle's name was submitted for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series" for her role as Rachel Zane on "Suits", but the newly-minted royal wasn't nominated.

Bruce Miller, executive producer of "The Handmaid's Tale", acknowledged that the show's vision of a theocracy where women are treated as property was hard to watch.
