Samira Wiley, Ryan Eggold To Announce 2018 Emmy Awards Nominations

Samira Wiley, Ryan Eggold To Announce 2018 Emmy Awards Nominations

Meanwhile, HBO's Thrones and Westworld nabbed 22 and 21 nominations each, while the dark comedy Barry scored 13 nods. With his seventh nom, Dinklage became the most nominated person ever in the category.

For the first year, Netflix have beaten HBO as the network with the most overall nods, with the streaming giant's productions - which include The Crown, Ozark and Stranger Things - earning it 112 nominations across the board, four more than HBO. And with the $8 billion that chief content officer Ted Sarandos expects to throw at original programming this year, next year's Emmy noms may look rather similar. She wasn't nominated for an Emmy in 2017, either.

HBO's Game of Thrones is closely followed by dystopian sci-fi series The Handmaid's Tale, which gained 20 nominations and won top drama previous year.

John Legend scores a nomination of his own for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his role as Jesus in NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert".

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" was the top comedy nominee with 16 bids, poised to take advantage of this year's absence of three-time victor "Veep".

The Emmys have also again exhibited significant diversity in terms of the makeup of its performer nominees, at a time when its chief peer, the Oscars, have struggled to be as inclusive.

For the most part, though, this year's categories mark a pretty fair representation of TV's best and brightest, while adding drama to the battle that's been brewing to its two foremost bidders for awards prestige.
