Netflix Earns the Most Emmy Nominations for the First Time Ever (but Game of Thrones Still Dominates)
The Television Academy announced this year’s Emmy Awards nominees on Thursday with a little help from Samira Wiley of The Handmaid’s Tale (herself nominated for Guest Actress in a Drama Series) and Ryan Eggold of the upcoming NBC drama New Amsterdam. Netflix had the most nominees by platform for the first time ever, beating HBO with a total of 112 nominations. That’s even as Game of Thrones, which was ineligible for last year’s awards, returned to dominate this year’s crop with 22 nominations, the most for a single show. It’ll go up against last year’s defending champion, The Handmaid’s Tale, for Outstanding Drama Series.
