Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage just made Emmys history

13 July 2018

Netflix is the most nominated network, with 112 - breaking a 17-year streak at the top for HBO.

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" was the top comedy nominee with 16 bids, poised to take advantage of this year's absence of three-time victor "Veep". With the nod - his seventh in a career that's spanned more than two decades - Dinklage becomes the most-nominated actor ever in the Emmys' best supporting actor category.

CNN's "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown", received a nomination in the category for best information series or special, which also includes shows with Leah Remini and David Letterman.

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".

The nominees for best drama series were The Handmaid's Tale; Game of Thrones; This Is Us; The Crown; The Americans; Stranger Things; and Westworld. It was among HBO's 108 nominations. Adrift in third was NBC with 78 nods.

"They follow our lead and they don't make us live inside a box either creatively or financially, and that is nearly unheard of among networks and movie studios", Levy told Reuters on Thursday.

Schwartzenberger said there are numerous shelters in the city, some of them within minutes of the RV park. Schwartzenberger said his onsite commander reported 122 structures in the park were completely destroyed.

Beginning at 11:25 am ET, Wiley and Eggold will reveal the nominees for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, airing Monday, Sept. 17 (8/7c) on NBC.

While there was a major turnover in the best comedy series category this year, helped by the absence of three-time victor Veep and also involving the snub of five-time victor Modern Family, an even bigger seismic shift happened last year in the best drama series field.

"We sit around and pray for irrelevance", Miller told Reuters.

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

Comedy series: Atlanta; Barry; Black-ish; Curb Your Enthusiasm; GLOW; The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; Silicon Valley; and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
