'Westworld,' 'Feud,' 'This Is Us' Among 2017 Emmy Award Nominees

Actor, drama series: Matthew Rhys, "The Americans"; Bob Odenkirk, "Better Call Saul"; Kevin Spacey, "House Of Cards"; Liev Schreiber, "Ray Donovan"; Sterling K. Brown, "This Is Us"; Milo Ventimiglia, "This Is Us"; Anthony Hopkins, "Westworld".

HBO (which we count as a streamer, given its availability to cord cutters) is on the board with nominations for "Silicon Valley" and "Veep", which will go up against Netflix's "Master of None" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".

Moss picked up a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for the show, which is based on a 1985 dystopian book of the same name, and is the early favorite in the category to win her first Emmy.

HBO's "Veep", the victor of the outstanding comedy series Emmy for the past two seasons, was nominated again, while ABC's "Modern Family" earned its eighth nomination in eight seasons.

Following closely behind are Netflix's "Stranger Things" and FX's limited series "Feud: Bette and Joan", which both have 18 nominations.

The drama field opened up with the absence of HBO's dominant "Game of Thrones", which aired outside the eligibility window for Emmy consideration this year.

The Emmys are scheduled to air September 17 on CBS, with Stephen Colbert as host.

To round out the major category nominations, Carrie Fisher received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in the hit series Catastrophe starring Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan.

The unlikely duo's hilarious dynamic earned their VH1 show, Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party, a nomination in the outstanding host for a reality or reality-competition program category.

"We've never been recognized by the Emmys - we didn't necessarily count on it this year", Coon explained.

HBO topped the list of networks with 111 nominations, followed by Netflix in second at 91, powered by "Stranger Things" and "The Crown" - which got 13 nominations including best drama.

In the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category, Leslie Jones is nominated for Saturday Night Live. If you're interested in the full list, look out for the Polygon link below.

However, Mandy Moore was not nominated for Lead Actress in a Drama Series. The lead actor nominees for comedy are Donald Glover (Atlanta), Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent), Aziz Ansari (Master of None), William H. Macy (Shameless) and Zach Galifianakis (Baskets). Who did get nominated for variety talk series? He'll compete in the Guest Actor in a Drama Series category against Denis O'Hare, who plays Jesse on the NBC drama This Is Us.

In the Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series category, Viola Davis has been nominated for her role in How To Get Away With Murder.

Their competition includes Pamela Adlon of "Better Things", Allison Janney of "Mom", Ellie Kemper of "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", Tracee Ellis Ross of "Blackish" and past victor Julia Louis-Dreyfuss of "Veep".
