Netflix Topples HBO in Emmy Nominations

The Crown- Philip Elizabeth- Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip journey through Ghana

The series had been expected to dominate the acting races among the limited series and TV movies - and indeed it did, with Darren Criss, Penelope Cruz, Edgar Ramirez and Ricky Martin all nominated.

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" is the top comedy with 16 bids. The Handmaid's Tale star Samira Wiley and New Amsterdam star Ryan Eggold were on hand to announce the nominations to the world on July 12 from the Wolf Theatre at the Television Academy's Saban Media Center. It will face newcomers including "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and "Barry", starring Bill Hader.

Last year's Outstanding Drama Series victor The Handmaid's Tale will look to defend its title from Game of Thrones, which is returning to eligibility this year after arriving too late in 2017 to compete in last year's Emmys.

It's returning to face formidable competition: "The Handmaid's Tale", the dystopian sci-fi series that claimed top drama honors past year, drew 20 bids, with "Westworld" close by with 21.


Leading the nominations in totals by platform were Netflix (112), leapfrogging last year's leader HBO, which scored 108.

The previous high for "Game of Thrones" was 24 nominations in 2015.

This year's Emmy Awards will broadcast live on NBC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. ET.
