Emmys 2018: Game Of Thrones Leads With 22 Nominations

2018 Emmy Award Nominations Survivor receives no Emmy nominations for the first time in 2018

From HBO hits like "Game of Thrones", "Barry", and "Westworld" to FX's "Atlanta" to Netflix's "Glow", a wide range of shows garnered nominations this year. Its fellow HBO drama Westworld had 21 nominations this year, as did Saturday Night Live.

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" was the top comedy nominee with 16 bids, poised to take advantage of this year's absence of three-time victor "Veep".

"Killing Eve" star Sandra Oh made as the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated for lead acting honors in a drama series.

The show is also nominated for Oustanding Drama Series and casting as well as 10 other categories, so something tells us it won't be walking away empty handed on September 17. Oh had earned five supporting bids for "Grey's Anatomy". That's because the streaming giant put an end to the premium cable channel's 17-year streak of garnering the most total nominations.

Eligible organizations include small businesses, local chambers of commerce, trade associations, and other community groups. Compare that to agents and brokers who enrolled 42 percent of customers at a cost of just $2.42 per enrollee.

"It has been another exceptional year in television marked by extraordinary storytelling from a wealth of diverse and innovative content creators", Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington said in a statement. "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied". "Saturday Night Live's" "Weekend Update" stars Michael Che and Colin Jost will host.

The fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year.

"The Handmaid's Tale" contributed to 27 nominations for Hulu, while "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" helped Amazon collect 22. This year, the only actors with Emmy nods are the Lannister siblings: Lena Headey (Cersei) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) also stand to win little golden statues.

Samantha Bee's nomination in the variety talk series category for her TBS show "Full Frontal" is likely to be interpreted as a gesture of support from Hollywood after she was upbraided for using a taboo curse word to describe Ivanka Trump. That's more nominations for Best Supporting Actor than anyone in history!
