Emmy Awards 2018 Emmy Award Nominations

The fantasy drama, meanwhile, leads the Emmys with 22 nominations to The Handmaid's Tale's 20 - which includes an Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series nom for Canadian Kari Skogland.

"TBS bravely put a woman over 45 on TV and in turn I only got yelled at by the president once", she said in a statement. The 70th Emmy Awards will telecast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Sunday, September 17 (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT) on NBC. Only one acting category, supporting actor in a drama series, had all-white nominees.

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

Some of TV's best work is now being done in the realm of limited series, and that was true again this season, with "Patrick Melrose", "Godless" and "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story" all making strong bids for attention.

HBO's Westworld received 21 nominations, while the seventh season of Game of Thrones received 22 nominations. The Rock's Ballers on HBO was nominated for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Comedy or Drama Series.

Pompeo denied that the talks went poorly, telling pool reporters that progress was made "in every element of our discussions". Separately, the USA has accused North Korea of violating a United Nations sanctions cap on refined oil products.

The streaming service's maneuvering (and not incidentally, expensive Emmy campaigning) paid off with 112 nominations - a significant increase over previous year, edging HBO's 108.

Add up all the award nominations and Netflix is now the top Emmy nominated "network", a term that we can now apply in the loosest of terms. 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.

"Game of Thrones" was out of the running in 2017 because the show aired later than usual.

The most star-studded category, as is often the case, was best actor in a limited series or TV movie, where Antonio Banderas, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Legend and Jeff Daniels all picked up nominations.
