Watch the 2018 Emmy Awards nominations live

Watch the 2018 Emmy Awards nominations live

The whopping number of Netflix noms tops the streaming giant's previous best showing of 91 in 2017, and shows that when it comes to racking up the accolades at least, investment in content pays off.

HBO, which came out on top last year, trailed just behind Netflix this time around with 108 nominations, down three from last year's 111 noms.

"Game of Thrones" roared back onto the Emmy battlefield, topping Thursday's nominations with 22 bids but facing a formidable opponent in "The Handmaid's Tale, " last year's top drama series.

See the full list of 2018 Emmy noms here. "This includes a record breaking number - 14 - for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel making it the studios most nominated series ever".




The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16. Its absence leaves just one network contender for best comedy, ABC's "black-ish", which also earned nods for Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson, who noted his urban California roots.

Netflix's investment in original programming has mirrored the strategy that has made HBO so consistently dominant, offering a wide variety of programming - from series like "The Crown" and "Stranger Things" to specials, from documentaries to unscripted fare. The two drama series picked up 13 and 12 nods respectively, and both were recognized in the coveted top drama category. Saturday Night Live's longest now employed actor garnered his first Emmy nomination since joining the series in 2003. 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.

This year's ceremony, broadcast from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater, will be hosted by Saturday Night Live's Michael Che and Colin Jost.
