Childish Gambino and 'Atlanta' Nominated for Four 2018 Emmys

From HBO hits like "Game of Thrones", "Barry", and "Westworld" to FX's "Atlanta" to Netflix's "Glow", a wide range of shows garnered nominations this year.

Just five years after the launch of its first original series, "House of Cards", Netflix ended HBO's 17-year streak as the most Emmy-nominated network.

Other drama series contenders are "Westworld", with an impressive 21 nods; "The Americans", nominated for its final season and with nods for stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys; "The Crown", "Stranger Things" and "This Is Us" from NBC, the only broadcast show to make the cut. In three Emmy categories, minority actors account for more than half the nominees: Supporting actor in a limited series or movie, guest actor in a comedy series and guest actress in a drama series.

While other streaming services didn't do as well as Netflix did, Hulu was nominated for 27 awards, and Amazon Prime was right behind them at 22 - most of which are from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

"Maisel", Amazon Studios' popular series set in a very Jewish 1950s NY neighborhood, was nominated for best comedy series.

Narongsak Osatanakorn said he was thankful for Musk's support but the equipment was impractical for the rescue mission. It takes the divers about eight hours to get into the cave, reach the boys, and bring them back out.

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

The 70th Emmy awards ceremony will be held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on 17 September. The last time there were three freshman series in the top comedy category was 2010 (Modern Family, Glee and Nurse Jackie).

In the best drama series category, there's a decent chance the award goes to a show written by someone Jewish. And Bledel's "Gilmore" love interest Milo Ventimiglia is nominated for Best Drama Actor for "This is Us" for the second year in a row.

But the scandal appeared not to have tainted much-admired Tony victor and Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf, Roseanne's sister Jackie in the show, who picked up her eighth nomination. Legend's nomination for Jesus Christ, Superstar means he can add an Emmy to the Grammy, Oscar and Tony he already has on his shelf.

Game of Thrones led all shows with 22 nominations, but that number is actually a drop from the last two times the HBO show was eligible.
