  • Critic's picks for Emmy nominations Expect 'Handmaid's Tale' and 'Atlanta'

Netflix racked up 112 nods while HBO earned 108. With his seventh nom, Dinklage became the most nominated person ever in the category. As chief content officer Ted Sarandos noted in a statement, the service's tally encompassed 40 titles, showcasing its "varied and expansive slate". Adrift in third was NBC with 78 nods. It's a steep fall-off from there, although 13 networks or services garnered 10 or more nominations, reflecting the breadth of competition that now characterizes the Emmy race in the age of "peak TV".

The streamer's historical limited series, "The Looming Tower", on the other hand, picked up four nominations, including Jeff Daniels for lead actor in a limited series or movie, casting, directing (Craig Zisk), and supporting actor in a limited series or movie (Michael Stuhlbarg).

The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16. These shows and performances absolutely deserved a little recognition.

As well as picking up nominations in many technical categories, Game of Thrones' acting talents have also been acknowledged with Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, shortlisted for Supporting Actress in a Drama Serious.

As always, the Emmys will be second-guessed and analyzed, looking for snubs and surprises.

The second season of The Crown counts Best Drama among it's nominations, with outgoing stars Claire Foy (Lead Actress in a Drama Series), Vanessa Kirby (Supporting Actress in a Drama Series), Matt Smith (Supporting Actor in a Drama Series) and Matthew Goode (Guest Actor in a Drama Series) all in the running.
