  • 2018 Emmy Award Nominations

The nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmys showed a clear sign of how much the ground is shifting in the TV industry as streaming service Netflix captured the most nominations overall taking away a title that HBO held since 2001. The streamer led the nominations with 112, while HBO scored 108.

The USA Network legal drama, whose eighth season will premiere later this month, has yet to receive any Emmy nods.

The nominees for best drama series were The Handmaid's Tale; Game of Thrones; This Is Us; The Crown; The Americans; Stranger Things; and Westworld.

Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" scored 20 nominations - seven better than past year - and is an early favorite to repeat as the victor for best drama in September. NBC shows earned 78 nods. Its fellow HBO drama Westworld had 21 nominations this year, as did Saturday Night Live.

The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16. Team TVLine already weighed in with its dream Emmy nominees, but time will tell whether any of our picks actually get the love they deserve.

Speaking of SNL nods: Chance The Rapper was nominated in the Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics category for his performance on the late night show in November of 2017.

Ozark's Jason Bateman received a nomination for best actor and director in a drama series, and Black Mirror's "USS Callister" was nominated for Best Television Movie.

The 70th annual Primetime Emmys will air September 17 from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The short-lived revival of "Roseanne", cancelled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet, drew only one major nomination, a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf.

But the scandal appeared not to have tainted much-admired Tony victor and Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf, Roseanne's sister Jackie in the show, who picked up her eighth nomination.
