Netflix Topples HBO in Emmy Nominations

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

Even with its first big Emmy contender not in the running after HOC's final season was delayed (and nearly derailed) by inappropriate behavior allegations against original star Kevin Spacey, Netflix still led the network pack this year with a total of 112 nominations, up from 91 last year and 54 in 2016. The fantasy series beat out fellow HBO show Westworld, which came in second with 21 nominations of its own. HBO is no piker: It claimed 108 bids.

"Game of Thrones", which sat out the awards past year because it missed the eligibility window, received 22 nominations, the most of any series.

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" was the top comedy series nominee the with 16 bids, poised to take advantage of the absence this time around of three-time victor "Veep". "This includes a record breaking number - 14 - for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel making it the studios most nominated series ever".

"Being a kid from Compton, one could only dream of moments like this, so it's truly a humbling experience right now", Anderson said.

And while the high-profile broadcast revivals of Will & Grace on NBC and Roseanne on ABC were largely passed over, with one supporting nomination for each (Megan Mullally and Laurie Metfcalf, respectively), an SVOD player, Netflix, also scored in the revival department with its best series nom for Queer Eye.

Diana Rigg's turn as Olenna Tyrell in the series has seen her nominated for Guest Actress in a Drama Series.

Out of the 91 nominations a year ago, HBO won 29 statues overall (10 in Primetime categories, 19 in Creative Arts), while Netflix won 20 (four in Primetime, 16 in Creative Arts). If he wins, he will earn the coveted EGOT, having previously won a Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.

Colts could be bidders in supplemental draft
The second group has the teams with more than six wins that didn't make the playoffs. The NFL Supplemental Draft usually comes and goes with little fanfare or excitement.

While HBO edged Netflix in the series categories, the longform field proved to be a deciding factor as HBO did not have a heavyweight contender this year of the size of last year's big victor Big Little Lies, while Netflix made big inroads in the space with Godless.

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" is the top comedy with 16 bids. That's the wonderful thing about being recognized.

Netflix was aided by powerhouse projects such as "The Crown", which received 13 nominations, including a key drama series nod; "Stranger Things", which received 12 noms, including drama series; "Godless", which received 12 noms, including one for limited series; and "GLOW", which received 10 noms, including comedy series.

Shawn Levy, a producer of "Stranger Things", got the good news after landing in NY following weeks of directing season three episodes in Georgia. Netflix spends lavishly on Emmy campaigns in part because it wants to convince top talent their shows and specials won't get lost amid the service's ever-expanding array of content. "Our deepest fear was complacency".

HBO's Westworld fared well in both the categories for Lead Actor in a Drama Series and Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Rhys will be up against last year's victor, Sterling K. Brown for "This Is Us", along with his castmate Milo Ventimiglia; Jason Bateman for "Ozark" and Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright for "Westworld". Those nominations won't convince Julia Roberts to do a show for BBC America, but it does send a clear message to series creators and actors that the network can break through the clutter of Peak TV.
