WWE Comes Up Short In Emmy Nominations

This image released by BBC America shows Sandra Oh in a scene from “Killing Eve.” Oh was nominated Thursday for an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series. The 70th Emmy Awards will be held on Monday Sept. 17

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

Best of luck to Donald Glover and the Atlanta cast! The minority nominations included a historic nod for Sandra Oh, who became the first nominee of Asian descent in the leading actress in a drama series for her role in the BBC America series Killing Eve. NBC topped the broadcast tally with 78 nominations, fueled by 21 bids for "Saturday Night Live", still on a satiric tear against the Trump administration. HBO still managed to earn 108 nominations for shows like Thrones and Westworld, but Netflix's collective might at producing increasingly good original content resulted in a massive 112 total nominations.

"They follow our lead and they don't make us live inside a box either creatively or financially, and that is nearly unheard of among networks and movie studios", Levy told Reuters on Thursday.

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards will kick off on Sunday, Sept. 17, at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

Graham's on-screen "Gilmore" daughter Alexis Bledel is up for Best Drama Supporting Actress for "The Handmaid's Tale" one year after she won in the guest category for her role as a defiant professor-turned-handmaid. "Game of Thrones", written by the Jewish duo of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and "The Americans", the recently finished and acclaimed spy series created by Joe Weisberg, are competing against a couple of other heavyweights: Netflix's "The Crown" and Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale".


Rhys and Brown will be up against Brown's castmate Milo Ventimiglia, along with Jason Bateman for "Ozark" and Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright for "Westworld".

Game of Thrones led all shows with 22 nominations, but that number is actually a drop from the last two times the HBO show was eligible.

Glover lands four nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for his work in FX's "Atlanta", which is this year's most-nominated comedy series with 16 nominations.

Creator Ryan Murphy said it was a "heartbreaking story to tell, made more so by the fact that we continue as a culture to grapple with homophobia and shame and intolerance".
