Australian Handmaid's Tale star Yvonne Strahovski lands Emmy nomination

Australian Handmaid's Tale star Yvonne Strahovski lands Emmy nomination

Netflix scored 112 nominations to HBO's 108.

All three Lannister siblings were also recognized, with Lena Headey earning her fourth Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role as Cersei while her on-screen brothers Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) picked up Best Supporting Actor nods.

Dinklage missed out on a nomination a year ago due to Game of Thrones' late premiere date, which disqualified the series from the 2017 competition. "The continued growth of the industry has provided opportunities for acclaimed new programs to emerge, while allowing last season's breakthrough programs to thrive".

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" was the top comedy nominee with 16 bids, poised to take advantage of this year's absence of three-time victor "Veep".

Best known for her role on Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black", Wiley is now starring on Hulu's critically acclaimed, Emmy-winning dystopian drama "The Handmaid's Tale".

Bruno Mars receives his second Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music Direction as the Music Director for his CBS special "Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo".

Beginning at 11:25 am ET, Wiley and Eggold will reveal the nominees for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, airing Monday, Sept. 17 (8/7c) on NBC.

Bruce Miller, executive producer of "The Handmaid's Tale", acknowledged that the show's vision of a theocracy where women are treated as property was hard to watch.

"We sit around and pray for irrelevance", Miller told Reuters.

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

It's also worthy of note that Donald Glover, who is up for lead actor in a comedy, landed 16 nominations for Atlanta, including outstanding comedy alongside Barry, Black-ish, Curb Your Enthusiasm, GLOW, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Silicon Valley, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
