  • 2018 Emmy Award Nominations

On the comedy side, "Veep" and its star are on an extended hiatus, so this category is wide open for "Atlanta", "Barry", "black-ish", "Curb Your Enthusiasm, "GLOW", "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", "Silicon Valley" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".

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

Netflix claiming the top spot at the awards this year isn't just about ousting HBO, it's a milestone for streaming services as a whole.

The short-lived revival of "Roseanne", canceled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet in May, drew only one major nomination: a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf. Oh had earned five supporting bids for Grey's Anatomy.

Meghan and Prince Harry were seen petting the Bernese Mountain pooches named Brod and Sioda in Dublin on Wednesday. Emma added: "She said she loved a handwritten postcard and that it was really nice to get one".

We know we can't change the list of nominees (although, wouldn't that be great if we could add in a few?), but that doesn't mean we can't show some love to the artists who have enhanced our TV-viewing experience over the past year. TV Academy presidents says individual nominees are more diverse than ever but says "we've still got a lot of work to do".

Comedy show Saturday Night Live, which has been enjoying high ratings due to its focus on the Trump administration, was rewarded with 21 nominations.

HBO's fantasy dragons-and-swords saga is a two-time best drama victor that sat out the last year's Emmys because of its production schedule.

The actor has company in the supporting actor drama series category with GoT castmate Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Dinklage's on-screen brother Jaime Lannister.

"Our deepest fear was complacency".

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).

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). Brown is also nominated for comedy series guest actor for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine".
