Netflix is the most nominated network, with 112 - breaking a 17-year streak at the top for HBO. The fantasy drama, meanwhile, leads the Emmys with 22 nominations to The Handmaid's Tale's 20 - which includes an Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series nom for Canadian Kari Skogland.

"The Handmaid's Tale", the dystopian sci-fi series based on Margaret Atwood's novel, drew 20 bids, including one for last year's best actress victor, Elisabeth Moss, and supporting bids for Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Yvonne Strahovski and Joseph Fiennes.
Now "Atlanta" and those dramas (Netflix's "The Crown", Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", Netflix's "Stranger Things", NBC's "This Is Us", and HBO's "Westworld") are sophomores and still dominating.
However, "GLOW" has two other nominations, including "Outstanding Comedy Series" and "Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series".
