Netflix top of the heap as platform leads networks with Emmy nominations

In the comedy contests, several newer titles garnered top nominations, including "Atlanta", "Glow", "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and Tulsa native Bill Hader's HBO series "Barry".

Top of the Lake: China Girl, shot in Sydney, also missed out in other categories, including best limited TV series, while lead actress Elisabeth Moss failed to earn a nomination.

Following HBO and Netflix is the most traditional network of them all, NBC, which has a total of 78 nominations including 21 just for this season of Saturday Night Live and four for the night Donald Glover hosted.

It was a very strong freshman class, and all five shows are back this year.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will air Monday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on NBC.

Joining Danson with an Emmy nomination of her own is Maya Rudolph for her guest arc on The Good Place as Judge Hydrogen, an impartial inter-dimensional judge who rules on matters involving the Good Place and the Bad Place.

"Game of Thrones", which sat out the awards previous year because it missed the eligibility window, received 22 nominations, the most of any series. Although it's up for top series honours, it drew only three supporting actor bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage. Legend's nomination for Jesus Christ, Superstar means he can add an Emmy to the Grammy, Oscar and Tony he already has on his shelf.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace, one of the few serious contenders this year that can claim to be entirely new, picked up an impressive 18 nominations.

"Killing Eve" star Sandra Oh made history of her own, becoming the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated for lead acting honours in a drama series. The fantasy drama, meanwhile, leads the Emmys with 22 nominations to The Handmaid's Tale's 20 - which includes an Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series nom for Canadian Kari Skogland.
