The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, which recognises excellence in television, will be held in Los Angeles on September 17.

The show about noble families vying for the Iron Throne faces tough competition from perennial favorite comedy sketch show "Saturday Night Live" and HBO stablemate "Westworld" with 21 nominations each.

Yvonne's co-stars on The Handmaid's Tale, Alexis Bledel and Ann Dowd, also received nominations.

Best known for her role on Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black", Wiley is now starring on Hulu's critically acclaimed, Emmy-winning dystopian drama "The Handmaid's Tale".

"Games of Thrones", a worldwide hit, got 22 nods, including for the top prize of best drama series.

A slew of first time Emmy contenders included Sandra Oh as the first Asian-American lead comedy actress nominee for her role in quirky spy series "Killing Eve", and Rachel Brosnahan's 1950s housewife turned comedian in "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel". NBC shows earned 78 nods. Game Of Thrones was the dominant series.

Lead actor in a drama series: Jason Bateman (Ozark); Sterling K Brown (This Is Us); Ed Harris (Westworld); Matthew Rhys (The Americans); Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us); and Jeffrey Wright (Westworld).

Also among the nominations: singer John Legend is up for lead actor in a miniseries or movie for his work in "Jesus Christ Superstar: Live in Concert". This year she had a shot at a nomination for Best Comedy Guest Actress for her multi-episode arc on "Curb Your Enthusiasm", but she was left out again.

Netflix's investment in original programming has mirrored the strategy that has made HBO so consistently dominant, offering a wide variety of programming - from series like "The Crown" and "Stranger Things" to specials, from documentaries to unscripted fare.
