Netflix supplants stalwart HBO as most Emmy nominated network or platform

The Emmy nominations are in and HBO's "Game of Thrones" leads the pack with 22 nominations.

Netflix is the most nominated network, with 112 - breaking a 17-year streak at the top for HBO.

According to Variety, Netflix favorites like The Crown and Stranger Things are to thank for its success with this year's nominations.

As far as other networks and platforms, NBC received the third most nominations this year, 78, followed by FX Networks (50), CBS (34), ABC (31), Hulu (27), and Amazon (22).

"Among the welcome highlights, the Television Academy recognized the final season of "The Americans", Sandra Oh for her standout starring performance in BBC America's "Killing Eve", Issa Rae for HBO's "Insecure" and Ted Danson - representing one of the few major-network series to break through - for NBC's The Good Place".

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". Meanwhile, newcomer Godless and comedy blowout GLOW also helped Netflix's numbers soar with 12 and 10 nominations apiece.

With Saturday Night Live continuing its Emmy resurgence (it was No. 2 behind GOT in most nominations, 21), NBC was again third behind titans Netflix and HBO with 78 noms, up from 64 a year ago, with major nominations for This Is Us and The Good Place.

Read on for a look at some of those who didn't make the cut.

The drama missed the awards in 2017 because of its production schedule but this year's nominations include nods for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.
