Even with its first big Emmy contender not in the running after HOC's final season was delayed (and nearly derailed) by inappropriate behavior allegations against original star Kevin Spacey, Netflix still led the network pack this year with a total of 112 nominations, up from 91 last year and 54 in 2016. That's not to say there's anything wrong with shows with overwhelming nomination counts, of course: It speaks to the overall quality of series like Game of Thrones, Westworld, Saturday Night Live, and The Handmaid's Tale that voters from so many branches of the TV Academy singled them out for praise. It has been outspending all rivals on original programming - Netflix's annual budget growing every year to $8 billion in 2018 - and on Emmy campaign with an elaborate FYC space the last two years. While HBO, NBC, and Hulu all had shows with more than 20 nominations, Netflix's biggest performer - The Crown - earned a comparatively modest 13 noms. It's a steep fall-off from there, although 13 networks or services garnered 10 or more nominations, reflecting the breadth of competition that now characterizes the Emmy race in the age of "peak TV". "We look forward to Sept 17th". The premium-cable pioneer managed to match its previous performance despite the absence of perennial Emmy powerhouse Veep, which scored 17 nods a year ago. See a full list of nominees here.

For the most part, though, this year's categories mark a pretty fair representation of TV's best and brightest, while adding drama to the battle that's been brewing to its two foremost bidders for awards prestige. It will face newcomers including "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and "Barry", starring Bill Hader. The series' 20 nods were the fourth-most for any show, finishing only behind "Game of Thrones" (22), "Saturday Night Live" (21), and "Westworld" (21).

While CBS also increased its Emmy nomination tally from 2017, ABC and Fox were down year-to-year. Other likely comedy nominees include Silicon Valley, black-ish and Will & Grace.

The short-lived revival of "Roseanne", canceled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet, drew only one major nomination, a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf.
