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

Emmys 2018 Five races we'll be watching when nominations are announced

HBO's Game of Thrones may have just become the Emmy Awards' most-nominated program ever, with nominations in a whopping 22 categories, but this year's standout is Netflix.

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

With award nominations in hand and facing some fierce competition, Netflix will be off to the red carpet come September 17.

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

In the heavyweight drama category, "Game of Thrones" will vie against "The Crown", the final season of "The Americans", "Stranger Things", "This is Us", "Westworld", and last year's victor, "The Handmaid's Tale". Silicon Valley and Curb Your Enthusiasm grabbed seven and four nominations each.




Lead actor in a drama series: Jason Bateman (Ozark); Sterling K Brown (This Is Us); Ed Harris (Westworld); Matthew Rhys (The Americans); Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us); and Jeffrey Wright (Westworld). Brown won this category previous year.

Competing with Moss, Oh and Russell for lead drama actress are Claire Foy for "The Crown", Tatiana Maslay of "Orphan Black" and Evan Rachel Wood of "Westworld".

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".

However, "GLOW" has two other nominations, including "Outstanding Comedy Series" and "Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series". If he wins, he will earn the coveted EGOT, having previously won a Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.

Sarah Paulson is nominated on the female side for her role in "American Horror Story: Cult", Ryan Murphy's twisted take on our political divide.
