Netflix topples HBO in Emmy nominations, but 'Game of Thrones' still rules

2018 Emmys Michael Che Colin Jost

The series' 20 nods were the fourth-most for any show, finishing only behind "Game of Thrones" (22), "Saturday Night Live" (21), and "Westworld" (21). It was nominated 24 times in both 2015 and 2016, winning 12 Emmys both years.

NBC's "This Is Us", the show about a multicultural family that premiered to huge critical acclaim a year ago, received its second nomination for drama series.

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. HBO had 108 and NBC 78.

The comedy crown usually stored in the "Veep" trophy cabinet went this year to "Atlanta", the FX comedy created by and starring Donald Glover, which amassed 16 nods. 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.

According to Variety, Netflix favorites like The Crown and Stranger Things are to thank for its success with this year's nominations.

Due to "Veep's" hiatus, perennial victor Julia Louis-Dreyfus is not nominated, opening up the lead actress category for Pamela Adlon, "Better Things"; Rachel Brosnahan, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"; Allison Janney, "Mom"; Issa Rae, "Insecure"; Tracee Ellis Ross, "black-ish"; and Lily Tomlin, "Grace and Frankie". GLOW received eight additional nominations in various categories. Or maybe it's just that we're never going to be happy in this era of "peak TV".

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.

Read on for a look at some of those who didn't make the cut.

It was a deep year of nominations for minority performers, who accounted for over one-third of Thursday's acting nominees. 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.
