Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage Just Broke an Emmys Record!

Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage Just Broke an Emmys Record!

The last time there were no freshman dramas in the top category was 2009 when sophomore Mad Men won its second straight best series title.

"We've been engaged with the Hollywood community for 100 years", James said, including NAACP-led protests against D.W. Griffith's "The Birth of a Nation" in 1915, just six years after the organization was founded. "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied".

HBO, which was recently acquired by wireless carrier AT&T Inc, had 108 nominations, and noted in a statement that it was the eighth year it had gathered 100 nominations or more.

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


In the drama and comedies series categories, NBC drama "This Is Us" and ABC sitcom "black-ish" are the sole network contenders. "We are pleased to have these two talented performers join us to announce this year's Emmy nominees and to celebrate television excellence".

"Killing Eve" star Sandra Oh made as the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated for lead acting honors in a drama series.

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". Legend's nomination for Jesus Christ, Superstar means he can add an Emmy to the Grammy, Oscar and Tony he already has on his shelf. He'd be the 13th person to pull it off, not counting honourary awards.

Every year, there are some surprising oversights. Brown is also nominated for comedy series guest actor for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine". It was nominated 24 times in both 2015 and 2016, winning 12 Emmys both years. It was not in the running in 2017. It was followed by NBC's sketch show "Saturday Night Live" and HBO's sci-fi series "Westworld" with 21 nominations each, and Hulu's dystopian vision "The Handmaid's Tale" with 20. For contrast, the nominees for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program are The Amazing Race, American Ninja Warrior, Project Runway, RuPaul's Drag Race, Top Chef and The Voice.
