Netflix receives more Emmy nominations than HBO

  • Rachel Brosnahan The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

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.

The nominees for best drama series were The Handmaid's Tale; Game of Thrones; This Is Us; The Crown; The Americans; Stranger Things; and Westworld. And during Thursday's 2018 Emmy nominations announcement, it was revealed that it's been nominated for 22 more, including Best Drama Series, Best Directing for a Drama Series and Best Writing for a Drama Series. "The Handmaid's Tale" contributed to 27 nominations for Hulu, while "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" helped Amazon collect 22. "I share this moment with my community", Oh said in a statement.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations are the culmination of a life's work and the goal of just about every television actor's career. "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied". Only one nominations category is all-white, and in three categories minority actors account for more than half the nominees.


The Handmaid's Tale came away with 20 nominations all up.

FX's true crime dramatization "The Assassination of Gianni Versace", led the booming limited category with 18 nominations, including a best actor nod for Darren Criss who plays the killer of the Italian fashion designer. If he wins, he will earn the coveted EGOT, having previously won a Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.

With women's rights advocates angry over President Donald Trump's nomination of an ultra-conservative judge to serve on the Supreme Court, a show about a fictional nightmarish America run by a totalitarian regime is an early favorite to steal the thunder of "Thrones". Atlanta leads in comedy series nominations with 16, and RuPaul's Drag Race and The Voice each had 10 nominations to lead in the reality-competition category.
