Emmys 2018: Game Of Thrones Leads With 22 Nominations

Share

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

The streaming service's maneuvering (and not incidentally, expensive Emmy campaigning) paid off with 112 nominations - a significant increase over past year, edging HBO's 108.

"GLOW" star Alison Brie wasn't nominated for her work on the Netflix series, in which she plays a struggling actress who joins a TV show focusing on women's wrestling.

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.

Other streaming services also received nominations for their originals, including Hulu with 27 nominations, with The Handmaid's Tale defending its Best Drama award this year.

Game of Thrones garnered a whopping 22 nominations - the most for any series this year.

First-year comedies had the best showing in the comedy series category in nearly two decades, with three nominees, Amazon/Prime Video'sThe Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, HBO's Barry, and Netflix's GLOW.

For the first time since 2001, HBO did not lead the nominations.

A slew of first time Emmy contenders included Sandra Oh as the first Asian-American lead comedy actress nominee for her role in quirky spy series "Killing Eve", and Rachel Brosnahan's 1950s housewife turned comedian in "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

"It has been another exceptional year in television marked by extraordinary storytelling from a wealth of diverse and innovative content creators", Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington said in a statement. 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 70th Emmys ceremony will take place in September and be hosted by comedians Colin Jost and Michael Che.

The list excluded long-running ABC comedy Modern Family, which has won five consecutive Best Comedy Emmys (2010 to 2014) and has earned a nomination in the category every year since its 2009 release.
