Emmys 2018 snubs, from Meghan Markle to Emilia Clarke

Emmys 2018 snubs, from Meghan Markle to Emilia Clarke

The streaming service's maneuvering (and not incidentally, expensive Emmy campaigning) paid off with 112 nominations - a significant increase over previous year, edging HBO's 108.

The nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmys held a clear sign of how much the ground is shifting under the TV industry: streaming service Netflix captured the most nominations overall, 112, taking away a title that HBO held since 2001 and giving broadcast TV more reason to fear its future in awards and viewers.

Comparatively, not one of the 10 most nominated shows this year comes from Netflix, showing that there's plenty of award-worthy entertainment across the platform - not just genre nominated shows like Stranger Things and Black Mirror, but also the likes of Ozark, Godless, Glow, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and The Crown. Thursday's nomination puts his total at seven, breaking the record for most nominated performer in this category.

In a statement, HBO said it was "very pleased" with its nominations and the "wide range" of categories they inhabited.

The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16. Saturday Night Live and Westworld both grabbed 21 nominations each, while The Handmaid's Tale secured 20 nominations. Sandra Oh became the first Asian woman to be nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series when she was honored for her work on BBC America's Killing Eve this year.

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