Game of Thrones racks up 22 Emmy nominations

David Harbour Stranger Things

While Netflix and HBO battle it out for Emmy supremacy - with the streaming service edging the pay channel in total nominations, the first time anyone's done that this century - voters can take a bow for a slate of nominees that both spread the wealth and mostly got it right, barring a few notable exceptions and oversights.

The news was not so good for Nicole Kidman at Thursday's Emmy nomination ceremony in Los Angeles.

Comedy show Saturday Night Live, which has been enjoying high ratings due to its focus on the Trump administration, was rewarded with 21 nominations.

"The Handmaid's Tale" kept Hulu in the Emmy conversation, and it is still proving to be the reason the streamer is dominating some major awards discussions.

Moss was nominated for best actress in a drama series for The Handmaid's Tale, with Strahovski's nomination coming in the supporting actress category.

HBO, which was recently acquired by wireless carrier AT&T Inc, had 108 nominations, and noted in a statement that it was the eighth year it had gathered 100 nominations or more.

Progress on the other will not head back home until January next year, and when it will, it will burn up in Earth's atmosphere. The Progress MS-09 lifted off as scheduled at 3:51 am today from the Russia-leased Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

"Game of Thrones" was out of the running in 2017 because the show aired later than usual.

Some of music's biggest names including Donald Glover, John Legend, and Bruno Mars are among the nominees for the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Adrift in third was NBC with 78 nods.

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).

On the comedy side, "Veep" and its star are on an extended hiatus, so this category is wide open for "Atlanta", "Barry", "black-ish", "Curb Your Enthusiasm, "GLOW", "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", "Silicon Valley" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".

Nicole Kidman missed out on an Emmy nomination for her performance in Top of the Lake: China Girl.
