Netflix knocks HBO off its throne, as Emmy voters spread the wealth

Samira Wiley, Ryan Eggold To Announce 2018 Emmy Awards Nominations

Game of Thrones makes its Emmy comeback this year after last year's later season airdate saw it ineligible for consideration for the awards.

Netflix is the most nominated network, with 112 - breaking a 17-year streak at the top for HBO.

"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.

Samira Wiley, nominated for guest actress in "The Handmaid's Tale", and Ryan Eggold ("New Amsterdam") presented the nominations from the Television Academy in Los Angeles.

Comparatively, not one of the 10 most nominated shows this year comes from Netflix, showing that there's plenty of award-worthy entertainment across the platform - not just genre nominated shows like Stranger Things and Black Mirror, but also the likes of Ozark, Godless, Glow, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and The Crown.

In a statement, HBO said it was "very pleased" with its nominations and the "wide range" of categories they inhabited. For the first time, both Hulu and Prime Video edged a major broadcast network in Emmy nominations, Fox (16).

Some of TV's biggest stars, as well as headline-grabbing shows, failed to get nominations this year.

Comedy show Saturday Night Live, which has been enjoying high ratings due to its focus on the Trump administration, was rewarded with 21 nominations. The two drama series picked up 13 and 12 nods respectively, and both were recognized in the coveted top drama category.

Without further ado, let's break down the numbers of this year's Emmy nominations.
