Netflix topples HBO in Emmy nominations, but ‘Game of Thrones’ still rules

The series' 20 nods were the fourth-most for any show, finishing only behind "Game of Thrones" (22), "Saturday Night Live" (21), and "Westworld" (21).

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations are the culmination of a life's work and the goal of just about every television actor's career.

"It has been another exceptional year in television marked by extraordinary storytelling from a wealth of diverse and innovative content creators", Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington said in a statement. The awards will be handed out at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on September 17 and broadcast on NBC.

This marks Danson's 13th career Emmy nomination, but his first for The Good Place.

Ryan Murphy's FX show "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, including for actors Darren Criss, Penelope Cruz, Edgar Ramirez and Ricky Martin.

In the best drama series category, there's a decent chance the award goes to a show written by someone Jewish.

WWE did not get any of the Emmy nominations they were gunning for.

Among the shows nominated include GLOW and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt for Best Comedy, and The Crown and Stranger Things for best Best Drama. The streaming service led the nominations in totals by platform with 112.

Game of Thrones leads this year's pack of Emmy nominees with 22 nods overall, including for Outstanding Drama Series. Rachel Brosnahan, its non-Jewish star, was nominated for best lead actress in a comedy series for her performance as the Jewish housewife-turned-comedian Midge Maisel.

The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16.

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