Netflix's 2018 Emmy nominations vs HBO, Hulu, and the networks

A slew of first time Emmy contenders included Sandra Oh as the first Asian-American lead comedy actress nominee for her role in quirky spy series "Killing Eve", and Rachel Brosnahan's 1950s housewife turned comedian in "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

The newbie comedies aced out long-time Emmy favourite "Modern Family", a five-time victor and perennial nominee since it debuted in 2009 on ABC.

"I share this moment with my community", Oh said in a statement.

The last time there were no freshman dramas in the top category was 2009 when sophomore Mad Men won its second straight best series title. "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied".

NBC - anchored by "Saturday Night Live" and "This is Us" - ranked third overall, garnering 78 Emmy bids, followed by the FX network, with 50. "It's good news for us in the industry", said Maury McIntyre, TV academy president.

Several major stars not normally associated with television got their first Emmy nominations in 2018.

But European firms are reluctant to risk far-reaching United States financial penalties they would face for doing business in Iran.

Best of luck to Donald Glover and the Atlanta cast! With the nod - his seventh in a career that's spanned more than two decades - Dinklage becomes the most-nominated actor ever in the Emmys' best supporting actor category. "Saturday Night Live's" "Weekend Update" stars Michael Che and Colin Jost will host.

If Legend wins, he'll join the rarified club of "EGOT" performers who've won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

The fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year.

The category is completed by "Westworld", Netflix's "The Crown", which finished on 13 nominations, and the streaming service's sci-fi series "Stranger Things" (12), as well as NBC's family drama "This is Us".

However, "GLOW" has two other nominations, including "Outstanding Comedy Series" and "Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series". That's more nominations for Best Supporting Actor than anyone in history!
