  • 2018 Emmys Michael Che Colin Jost

While the show didn't retain its former awards nomination glory this year, streaming giant Netflix, which distributes "Orange Is the New Black", earned the most nominations of any channel or platform with 112, narrowly beating HBO's 108. Meanwhile, HBO's Thrones and Westworld nabbed 22 and 21 nominations each, while the dark comedy Barry scored 13 nods. "We are pleased to have these two talented performers join us to announce this year's Emmy nominees and to celebrate television excellence". "The continued growth of the industry has provided opportunities for acclaimed new programs to emerge, while allowing last season's breakthrough programs to thrive".

The return of "Thrones" did tighten the race up on the drama side, but the absence of "Veep" from contention this year didn't seem to do much to help on the comedy side.

The 70th Emmy awards ceremony will be held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on 17 September.

"We're grateful to all our nominees for making this the eighth year we've had 100 nominations or more".

"You are basically writing a show about the way you pray that the world won't go, and then it starts going that way".

"Game of Thrones" was out of the running in 2017 because the show aired later than usual.

John Legend scores a nomination of his own for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his role as Jesus in NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert".

Creator Ryan Murphy said it was a "heartbreaking story to tell, made more so by the fact that we continue as a culture to grapple with homophobia and shame and intolerance".
