Emmys 2018 snubs, from Meghan Markle to Emilia Clarke

"Game of Thrones holds the series record for most awards in a year a dozen which it set in 2015 and matched the following year and with a total of 38 Emmys stands as the most-honored program ever

The streaming service secured 112 nominations, up from 34 in 2015 and led by programmes like The Crown and Stranger Things.

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

Other best drama contenders include "The Crown", NBC's family drama "This Is Us", Cold War spy series "The Americans" on FX and "Westworld".

HBO's Westworld received 21 nominations, while the seventh season of Game of Thrones received 22 nominations.

It was a very strong freshman class, and all five shows are back this year.

"Game of Thrones" will compete for best drama with last year's Emmy champion, Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", which also won nods for actresses Elisabeth Moss, Alexis Bledel, Samira Wiley, Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski.

Meanwhile, 2018 freshman series nominees on the comedy side are HBO's "Barry", Netflix's "GLOW", and Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

In a statement, HBO said it was "very pleased" with its nominations and the "wide range" of categories they inhabited.

Both men are nominated again, along with noteworthy first-timers including Latino actors Ricky Martin and Penelope Cruz for "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story", Tiffany Haddish for "Saturday Night Live", Issa Rae for "Insecure" and John Legend for "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert". That's because the streaming giant put an end to the premium cable channel's 17-year streak of garnering the most total nominations. Megan Amram, nominated for "An Emmy for Megan", scored two noms her first time at Emmy bat, with short-form actress, as well as short-form series. And during Thursday's 2018 Emmy nominations announcement, it was revealed that it's been nominated for 22 more, including Best Drama Series, Best Directing for a Drama Series and Best Writing for a Drama Series.

Saturday Night Live's Michael Che and Colin Jost will co-host 70th Emmy Awards, airing live on Monday, Sept. 17, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
