Netflix has just become the top Emmy-nominated network

Netflix scored 112 Emmy Awards nominations on Thursday, more than any other television network and breaking a streak that HBO held onto for 17 years.

The Handmaid's Tale earned a total of 20 Emmy nominations, however Game of Thrones received the most nods with 22 overall.

Every year, there are some surprising oversights.

The TV industry has made recent strides toward inclusion, with Glover and Sterling K. Brown of "This Is Us" winning top acting awards a year ago and both nominated again. 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". Glover won directing past year and was nominated for writing, losing to "Master of None"'s Aziz Ansari and Lena Waithe.

What Time Are the 2018 Emmy Nominations?
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 .

Some of music's biggest names including Donald Glover, John Legend, and Bruno Mars are among the nominees for the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Although it's up for top series honors, it drew only three supporting actor bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.

It will be co-hosted by "Saturday Night Live" comedians Colin Jost and Michael Che.

"Game of Thrones" will compete for best drama with last year's Emmy champion, Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", which also won nods for actresses Elisabeth Moss, Alexis Bledel, Samira Wiley, Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski.

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). Glover himself was nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series category.
