GLOW gets Emmy nomination love, no luck for WWE

13 July 2018

Dinklage missed out on a nomination previous year due to Game of Thrones' late premiere date, which disqualified the series from the 2017 competition.

The nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmys held a clear sign of how much the ground is shifting under the TV industry: streaming service Netflix captured the most nominations overall, 112, taking away a title that HBO held since 2001 and giving broadcast TV more reason to fear its future in awards and viewers. It is worth noting that this is the first year that WWE was able to get their programming on the preliminary ballot.

Lead actress drama takes last year's victor Elisabeth Moss for "The Handmaid's Tale" with Claire Foy, "The Crown"; Tatiana Maslany, "Orphan Black"; Sandra Oh, "Killing Eve"; Keri Russell, "The Americans"; and Evan Rachel Wood for "Westworld".

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.

However, unforced errors were her downfall and particularly costly given Williams' unerring accuracy and solid service games. The 36-year-old will be the first mother to compete in a Wimbledon final since Australia's Evonne Goolagong in 1980.

Last year, after "The Handmaid's Tale" helped Hulu break into the Emmy race in its biggest way yet, Craig Erwich, head of content at the streamer, revealed to Variety that their strategy of looking for shows that have "a big world, feel relevant and feel like television events" had paid off.

Still HBO has much to feel good about - "Game of Thrones", returning after a year off, led all shows with 22 nominations, followed by "Westworld" and "Saturday Night Live", each with 21.

"Game of Thrones" was out of the running in 2017 because the show aired later than usual. GLOW received eight additional nominations in various categories.

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". It's a steep fall-off from there, although 13 networks or services garnered 10 or more nominations, reflecting the breadth of competition that now characterizes the Emmy race in the age of "peak TV".
