Share

As this chart from Statista shows, Netflix's 112 nomination put it in first place, with three more than runner-up HBO and four times as many as the next leading streaming service, Hulu. That's up from a quarter of the field previous year, when Brown ("This Is Us") and Glover ("Atlanta") won top acting awards.

Other drama series contenders are "Westworld" and "The Americans", nominated for its final season and with nods for stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys.

Since the first season of Game of Thrones, Dinklage has received a nomination for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series every year the show was eligible, and this year is no different.

It was a very strong freshman class, and all five shows are back this year.

Record-breaking fantasy epic "Game of Thrones" made a storming comeback Thursday to Hollywood's awards circuit after a year off, dominating this year's Emmy nominations with a whopping 22 nods.

"The Handmaid's Tale, " the dystopian sci-fi series that claimed top drama honors last year, drew 20 bids, including one for last year's best actress victor, Elisabeth Moss, and supporting bids for Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Yvonne Strahovski and Joseph Fiennes. Issa Rae became a first-time nominee for her role in "Insecure", while Rachel Brosnahan (Lead Actress in a Comedy for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel") and Bill Hader (Lead Actor in a Comedy for "Barry") are first-time nominees for their categories.
