Netflix knocks HBO off its throne, as Emmy voters spread the wealth

Netflix knocks HBO off its throne, as Emmy voters spread the wealth

(L-R) Handmaid's Tale co-stars Elisabeth Moss, Amanda Brugel and Yvonne Strahovski at a party in Los Angeles.

The GLOW series on Netflix earned an Emmy award nomination for outstanding comedy series.

Markle's name was submitted for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series" for her role as Rachel Zane on "Suits", but the newly-minted royal wasn't nominated.

The nominees for the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards have arrived and as expected, quite a few genre programs have received the recognition that they deserve. Saturday Night Live and Westworld both grabbed 21 nominations each, while The Handmaid's Tale secured 20 nominations.

Graham's on-screen "Gilmore" daughter Alexis Bledel is up for Best Drama Supporting Actress for "The Handmaid's Tale" one year after she won in the guest category for her role as a defiant professor-turned-handmaid.




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

The actresses who squeezed Kidman and Watts out of the supporting actress in a limited series category were: Adina Porter (American Horror Story: Cult); Penelope Cruz and Judith Light (The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story); Letitia Wright (Black Museum); Merritt Wever (Godless); and Sara Bareilles (Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert).

HBO awards darling "Veep" was ineligible this year and its crown passed to "Atlanta", the FX comedy created by and starring Donald Glover, which amassed 16 nods.

For lead actor drama, the Television Academy nominated Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright, "Westworld"; Matthew Rhys, "The Americans"; and Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia of "This is Us".
