Facts and figures about this year's Emmy Award nominations

2018 Emmys Michael Che Colin Jost

The nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmys showed a clear sign of how much the ground is shifting in the TV industry as streaming service Netflix captured the most nominations overall taking away a title that HBO held since 2001.

Netflix favorites GLOW and Kimmy Schmidt got nods for best comedy series while HBO mainstays Curb Your Enthusiasm and Silicon Valley were also nominated in the category.

It threatens to end the domination of HBO, which makes Game of Thrones and Westworld and has won the most awards for the past 16 years. It got one nomination in 2015, three in 2016, four in 2017 and five in 2018, including best comedy series, best actor in a comedy series for Anthony Anderson and best actress in a comedy series for Tracee Ellis Ross.

Second round voting takes place in August while the ceremony itself will be beamed live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sept 17 on NBC - hosted by "Saturday Night Live" duo Colin Jost and Michael Che.

And among that basketful is yet another nomination for Dinklage, who just picked up another nod for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Tyrion during Season 7. And HBO's "Barry" made a significant mark on the comedy voting, where Donald Glover's "Atlanta" led the way, in a field thrown wide open by the absence of three-time champ "Veep" from this year's list of contenders. She added a postscript: "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied".

Comedy show Saturday Night Live, which has been enjoying high ratings due to its focus on the Trump administration, was rewarded with 21 nominations.

First-time nominees in one-off projects such as limited series, TV movies, and guest appearances this year include Darren Criss ("The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story"), John Legend ("Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert"), and Jessica Biel ("The Sinner") for lead actor and actress in a limited series or TV movie, respectively.
