Emmy Nominations: Modern Family, This Is Us and More Snubs and Surprises

2018 Emmy Award Nominations

Emmy Awards

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".

The TV industry has made recent strides toward inclusion, with Glover and Sterling K. Brown of "This Is Us" winning top acting awards past year and both nominated again.

"Games of Thrones" got 22 nods, including for the top prize of best drama series.

Although season seven of Game of Thrones aired in summer 2017, due to the Emmys' eligibility cutoff, the HBO drama had to wait until this year to submit anything for consideration. It wasn't until 2013 that Netflix won a single award for House of Cards, the first original online-only web television series to receive major nominations for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards and now, just five years later, Netflix has more awards than any other content maker.

Its nominated shows include sci-fi drama Stranger Things, fictionalised royal biopic The Crown, comedy GLOW and western Godless. HBO had 108 and NBC 78. The streaming service led the nominations in totals by platform with 112.

"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 70th Emmy Awards ceremony will be held at the Microsoft Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on September 17.

Moss was nominated for best actress in a drama series for The Handmaid's Tale, with Strahovski's nomination coming in the supporting actress category. 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.

"We sit around and pray for irrelevance", Miller told Reuters.

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".

However, there were a number of others who were nominated for the first time for longer-running shows. And Alex Borstein, who had a recurring role on "Gilmore Girls", is nominated for Best Comedy Supporting Actress for "Maisel" too.
