Game of Thrones leads Emmy nominations

HBO's Game of Thrones may have just become the Emmy Awards' most-nominated program ever, with nominations in a whopping 22 categories, but this year's standout is Netflix.

Hulu scored 27 nominations from the Television Academy for the 70th annual primetime television awards, up from 18 a year ago, with 20 of those nominations for "The Handmaid's Tale".

Moss was nominated for best actress in a drama series for The Handmaid's Tale, with Strahovski's nomination coming in the supporting actress category.

In the heavyweight drama category, "Game of Thrones" will vie against "The Crown", the final season of "The Americans", "Stranger Things", "This is Us", "Westworld", and last year's victor, "The Handmaid's Tale". And even some shows that did very well in overall nominations, like HBO's "Game of Thrones", saw some notable stars absent from the final tallies. "Atlanta" will face newcomers including "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, " "Glow" and "Barry".

On the comedy side, last year's victor, Donald Glover for "Atlanta", goes up against Anthony Anderson, "black-ish"; Ted Danson, "The Good Place"; Larry David, "Curb Your Enthusiasm"; Bill Hader, "Barry"; and William H. Macy, "Shameless". That Amazon streaming series was created by "Gilmore" mastermind Amy Sherman-Palladino, who is now nominated for Best Comedy Series, Best Comedy Writing and Best Comedy Directing for her work on the new show.

Rhys and Brown will be up against Brown's castmate Milo Ventimiglia, along with Jason Bateman for "Ozark" and Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright for "Westworld". If he wins, he will earn the coveted EGOT, having previously won a Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.
