NBC's long-running variety show Saturday Night Live and HBO's science-fiction series Westworld got 21 nominations each, and Hulu's dystopian drama The Handmaid's Tale, 20.

Twin Peaks was an Emmys darling during its original ABC run, racking up 18 total nominations across two seasons.

"It has been another exceptional year in television marked by extraordinary storytelling from a wealth of diverse and innovative content creators", Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington said in a statement.

The 70th annual Primetime Emmys will air September 17 from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

However, there were a number of others who were nominated for the first time for longer-running shows.

Jessica Biel (The Sinner), Penelope Cruz (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), John Legend (Jesus Christ, Superstar), Ricky Martin (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) and Katt Williams (Atlanta) are all first-time nominees this year.




The smash hit HBO show, which returns for a shortened eighth and final season next year, will compete once again for the coveted best drama series prize, several acting trophies and a slew of technical awards.

"Maisel" and Sarah Silverman's new late-night show earned Emmy nominations on Thursday. That's not only more than double the number previous year, but it also qualifies as the most nominations ever as it tops those from 2016, when 21 people of color were nominated across drama, comedy, movie/limited and guest categories.

Netflix's most nominated show was "The Crown" with 13, including for best drama series.

The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16.

"I think we're all happy with the direction we're going".

Ozark's Jason Bateman received a nomination for best actor and director in a drama series, and Black Mirror's "USS Callister" was nominated for Best Television Movie.
