Chance the Rapper, Donald Glover, John Legend Nominated for Emmys

Netflix just broke HBO's 17-year streak as the network with the most Emmy nominations - the streaming service was nominated for a whopping 112 awards at this year's ceremony while HBO sits at a still-respectable 108.

NBC's "This Is Us", the show about a multicultural family that premiered to huge critical acclaim a year ago, received its second nomination for drama series. In three Emmy categories, minority actors account for more than half the nominees: Supporting actor in a limited series or movie, guest actor in a comedy series and guest actress in a drama series.

Another streamed series, Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", earned 20 nominations and a chance to defend its title as best drama series at the 70th Primetime Emmy ceremony airing September 17 on NBC.

On the down side, the balloting felt unduly generous to a disjointed second season of HBO's "Westworld", which ranked behind only "Game of Thrones" - back in the race after a year hiatus - in terms of total nominations, tied with "Saturday Night Live", and followed by "The Handmaid's Tale". "I share this moment with my community", Oh said in a statement.

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

For Hinch's part, he said he didn't know if he was the target, but if it was, "we'll talk about it". Between those two games and the one Tuesday, Giles allowed 10 earned runs while tallying one out.


Furthermore, Survivor host and executive producer Jeff Probst hasn't been nominated for the Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program Emmy since the last time he won; in 2011.

The "This is Us" star, who plays mom Rebecca Pearson on the hit NBC tearjerker, wasn't among the names included in the "Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series" category.

But the scandal appeared not to have tainted much-admired Tony victor and Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf, Roseanne's sister Jackie in the show, who picked up her eighth nomination. Only one acting category, supporting actor in a drama series, had all-white nominees. "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied".

'Saturday Night Live, ' riding high in the ratings with its relentless pillorying of the Trump administration, was rewarded with 21 nods.
