Netflix captures the most Emmy nominations

2018 Emmy Award Nominations

Netflix scooped 112 nominations and HBO was honored with 108, followed by FX Networks with 50 and Showtime coming in last with 20.

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.

The most star-studded category, as is often the case, was best actor in a limited series or TV movie, where Antonio Banderas, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Legend and Jeff Daniels all picked up nominations.

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

Game of Thrones is the show leading the way in this year's Emmy awards race, with 22 nominations. And Alex Borstein, who had a recurring role on "Gilmore Girls", is nominated for Best Comedy Supporting Actress for "Maisel" too.

"I share this moment with my community", Oh said in a statement. 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.

The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16. "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied". NBC's Saturday Night Live, with 21 nominations this year, has now been nominated 252 times in its history, a record for any show. Yvonne Strahovski, Alexis Bledel, and Ann Dowd are all nominated for Supporting Actress, and Joseph Fiennes is nominated for Supporting Actor.

Lead actress in a drama series: Claire Foy (The Crown); Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black); Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale); Sandra Oh (Killing Eve); Keri Russell (The Americans) and Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld).
