Samira Wiley, Ryan Eggold To Announce 2018 Emmy Awards Nominations

Emmys 2018 Five races we'll be watching when nominations are announced

Emmys 2018 Five races we'll be watching when nominations are announced

Among the dozens of nominations this year, there were plenty of standout nods, including more than two dozen stars who earned their first Emmy recognition as performers.

HBO's fantasy epic "Game of Thrones" led the field for television's prestigious Primetime Emmy awards on Thursday, with a whopping 22 nominations, including one for best drama series. Significantly, Game of Thrones, this year's most nominated show with 22 nominations, wasn't eligible last year, because HBO took their sweet time between seasons again. As chief content officer Ted Sarandos noted in a statement, the service's tally encompassed 40 titles, showcasing its "varied and expansive slate".

Some of TV's biggest stars, as well as headline-grabbing shows, failed to get nominations this year.

There was also an added bonus for Wiley-she landed her second Emmy nomination for Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her Hulu series. That's because the streaming giant put an end to the premium cable channel's 17-year streak of garnering the most total nominations.

Sara Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister's Wife, Is Charged With Fraud
Israeli police recommended in February that Benjamin Netanyahu face charges for accepting US$300,000 ($436,000) worth of bribes. Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit first brought the case against Sara Netanyahu to court in September.

The show about noble families vying for the Iron Throne faces tough competition from perennial favorite comedy sketch show "Saturday Night Live" and HBO stablemate "Westworld" with 21 nominations each.

While far behind leader Netflix, the other two established SVOD players, Hulu, who claimed the first best series win for a streamer previous year with Handmaid's Tale, and Amazon/Prime Video, continue to gain ground.

There was no broadcast presence in three series acting categories - lead and supporting actress in a drama and supporting actor in a drama.
