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

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

The Emmy nominations are in and HBO's "Game of Thrones" leads the pack with 22 nominations.

"Saturday Night Live, " riding high in the ratings with its relentless pillorying of the Trump administration, was rewarded with 21 nods.

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

Showtime's "Twin Peaks" revival didn't make the cut - producing bellyaching from its critical admirers - and while TNT's "The Alienist" and National Geographic Channel's second installment of "Genius", about Pablo Picasso, look like long shots against those heavyweights, they reflect the rising ambition exhibited by other networks in their bid to make a mark with scripted programming.

Not to mention actresses including GLOW's Alison Brie and This Is Us superstar Mandy Moore (and all her This Is Us female costars too for that matter) were also left off the ballot.

Although season seven of Game of Thrones aired in summer 2017, due to the Emmys' eligibility cutoff, the HBO drama had to wait until this year to submit anything for consideration.

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 series scored key nods in categories including drama series, lead actress in a drama (Elisabeth Moss), supporting actress in a drama (Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Yvonne Strahovski), supporting actor in a drama (Joseph Fiennes), guest actress in a drama (Kelly Jenrette, Cherry Jones, Samira Wiley), drama series directing (Kari Skogland), and drama series writing (Bruce Miller).
