Netflix Topples HBO in Emmy Nominations

Emmy Awards

Netflix has tripled its Emmy nomination count in three years to become the most recognised network in U.S. television.

This marks Danson's 13th career Emmy nomination, but his first for The Good Place.

Jessica Biel (The Sinner), Penelope Cruz (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), John Legend (Jesus Christ, Superstar), Ricky Martin (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) and Katt Williams (Atlanta) are all first-time nominees this year.

HBO, which was recently acquired by wireless carrier AT&T Inc, had 108 nominations, and noted in a statement that it was the eighth year it had gathered 100 nominations or more. "Atlanta" will face newcomers including "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, " "Glow" and "Barry".

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).

The 70 annual Emmy Awards air September 17 on NBC. And during Thursday's 2018 Emmy nominations announcement, it was revealed that it's been nominated for 22 more, including Best Drama Series, Best Directing for a Drama Series and Best Writing for a Drama Series.

But the scandal appeared not to have tainted much-admired Tony victor and Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf, Roseanne's sister Jackie in the show, who picked up her eighth nomination. The show featuring chef-writer Bourdain, who died in early June, has won four Emmys. Legend, already an Oscar, Tony and Grammy victor, could become a member of the EGOT club if he wins this Emmy.

The 2018 Emmys will be hosted by Saturday Night Live stars Colin Jost and Michael Che.

The fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year. Yvonne Strahovski, Alexis Bledel, and Ann Dowd are all nominated for Supporting Actress, and Joseph Fiennes is nominated for Supporting Actor. 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.

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.
