Crowning glory for Netflix with Emmy nomination success

2018 Emmy Award Nominations

And HBO's "Barry" made a significant mark on the comedy voting, where Donald Glover's "Atlanta" led the way, in a field thrown wide open by the absence of three-time champ "Veep" from this year's list of contenders.

The newbie comedies aced out long-time Emmy favorite "Modern Family", a five-time victor and perennial nominee since it debuted in 2009 on ABC.

"It has been another exceptional year in television marked by extraordinary storytelling from a wealth of diverse and innovative content creators", Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington said in a statement. And among that basketful is yet another nomination for Dinklage, who just picked up another nod for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Tyrion during Season 7. "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied". Adrift in third was NBC with 78 nods. Keep reading to find out all the lucky stars who were nominated for the 2018 Emmys.

The TV industry has made recent strides toward inclusion, with Glover and Sterling K. Brown of "This Is Us" winning top acting awards previous year and both nominated again.

Only one of this year's categories, supporting actor in a drama, lacked any performers of color. Saturday Night Live's Colin Jost and Michael Che will host the ceremony. Legend's nomination for Jesus Christ, Superstar means he can add an Emmy to the Grammy, Oscar and Tony he already has on his shelf.

Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" scored 20 nominations - seven better than a year ago - and is an early favorite to repeat as the victor for best drama in September.

But it was "Thrones" that set the Emmys pace with its seventh season, which aired last summer, earning recognition for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage and Diana Rigg.

NBC's "This Is Us", the show about a multicultural family that premiered to huge critical acclaim a year ago, received its second nomination for drama series.

Lead actress in a drama series: Claire Foy (The Crown); Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black); Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale); Sandra Oh (Killing Eve); Keri Russell (The Americans) and Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld). Other nominees in the category include Jason Bateman ("Ozark"), Ed Harris ("Westworld") and Matthew Rhys ("The Americans"). Rae was nominated Thursday for an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series. That's more nominations for Best Supporting Actor than anyone in history!
