Game of Thrones leads Emmy nominations, but Netflix dethrones HBO as leader

2018 Emmy Award Nominations Survivor receives no Emmy nominations for the first time in 2018

HBO's Game of Thrones is closely followed by dystopian sci-fi series The Handmaid's Tale, which gained 20 nominations and won top drama previous year.

Now "Atlanta" and those dramas (Netflix's "The Crown", Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", Netflix's "Stranger Things", NBC's "This Is Us", and HBO's "Westworld") are sophomores and still dominating.

"Game of Thrones" may lead the pack with 22 Emmy nods this year, including one for Outstanding Drama Series, but Clarke and Harrington weren't among the recipients.

It was a very strong freshman class, and all five shows are back this year.

HBO's fantasy epic Game of Thrones led the field for television's prestigious Primetime Emmy awards on Thursday, with a whopping 22 nominations, including one for best drama series. If he wins this year, he'll tie Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul for the most wins in the Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category.

Comedy series: Atlanta; Barry; Black-ish; Curb Your Enthusiasm; GLOW; The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; Silicon Valley; and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. This is the first time either of the stars have hosted the show, which is also being executive produced by Lorne Michaels.

It was a deep year of nominations for minority performers, who accounted for over one-third of Thursday's acting nominees. She wasn't nominated for an Emmy in 2017, either. In three Emmy categories, minority actors account for more than half the nominees: Supporting actor in a limited series or movie, guest actor in a comedy series and guest actress in a drama series.

"It has been another exceptional year in television marked by extraordinary storytelling from a wealth of diverse and innovative content creators", Washington said in a statement. 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.
