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.
"Game of Thrones", which sat out the awards a year ago because it missed the eligibility window, received 22 nominations, the most of any series.
"HBO is very pleased with its 108 nominations, especially the wide range over so many categories", the network said in a statement.
For the most part, though, this year's categories mark a pretty fair representation of TV's best and brightest, while adding drama to the battle that's been brewing to its two foremost bidders for awards prestige.
Look, we're happy for those who did get nominated (most of them, anyway), but COME ON!
While CBS also increased its Emmy nomination tally from 2017, ABC and Fox were down year-to-year. Medfield's Uzo Aduba has been nominated for Supporting Actress for "Orange Is the New Black" three times (winning twice, in 2014 and 2015), while Wayland and West Roxbury's Taylor Schilling was nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2014.
