“Game of Thrones” Leads the Way with 22 Emmy Nominations

LOS ANGELES – American fantasy drama television series “Game of Thrones,” whose seventh season was not eligible for the 2017 Emmy Awards due to a delayed start date, more than made up for that absence by racking up the most nominations (22) this year.

The nominations were announced Thursday in Los Angeles.

That HBO series, whose eighth and final season will air in 2019, has dominated the Emmys in recent years, winning the award for Outstanding Drama Series in 2015 and 2016 and holding the all-time record for most overall wins by a drama series with 38.

Its fellow nominees in this year’s Outstanding Drama Series category are “The Americans” (FX); “The Crown” (Netflix); “Stranger Things” (Netflix); “This Is Us” (NBC); “Westworld” (HBO); and last year’s winner, “The Handmaid’s Tale” (Hulu).

Those latter two series were second and third in overall 2018 Emmy nominations with 21 and 20, respectively.

Although the seventh season of “Game of Thrones” did not receive any nods in the lead actor or actress categories, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage received supporting-actor nominations and Lena Headey was recognized in the best-supporting-actress category.

While the return of “Game of Thrones” helped ensure another strong showing for HBO (108 overall nominations), Netflix (112) surged past that premium cable and satellite television network to become the first streaming service to garner the most overall Emmy nods.

In the Outstanding Comedy Series category, the eight nominees are “Atlanta” (FX), “Barry” (HBO), “Black-ish” (ABC), “Curb Your Enthusiasm” (HBO), “GLOW” (Netflix), “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (Amazon), “Silicon Valley” (HBO) and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” (Netflix).

The Emmys, which are given out in a ceremony held annually in September at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, are the premier awards for excellence in television in the United States.
