Game of Thrones racks up 22 Emmy nominations

2018 Emmy Award Nominations

HBO's fantasy epic Game of Thrones led the field for television's prestigious Primetime Emmy awards on Thursday, with a whopping 22 nominations, including one for best drama series.

"Game of Thrones", which sat out the awards a year ago because it missed the eligibility window, received 22 nominations, the most of any series. It was nominated 24 times in both 2015 and 2016, winning 12 Emmys both years.

With women's rights advocates angry over President Donald Trump's nomination of a deeply conservative judge to serve on the Supreme Court, a show about a fictional nightmarish America run by a totalitarian regime bent on oppressing women is tipped to steal some of the thunder of "Thrones".

Speaking of snubs, late night NBC network hosts Jimmy Fallon and Seth Myers were given the cold shoulder this year while CBS rivals Stephen Colbert and James Cordon made the cut with nominations for best writing in a variety show.

'I Am One Of The Best Defenders In The World!'
In extra-time we showed we are still able with the fatigue to play our game". "We will never forget this". It's unbelievable how many talents we have in sport, basketball, handball, water polo, tennis, for sure.


The GLOW series on Netflix earned an Emmy award nomination for outstanding comedy series. Adrift in third was NBC with 78 nods. Only one acting category, supporting actor in a drama series, had all-white nominees.

Best known as a Tony Award-winning stage actor, Kelli O'Hara, an Elk City native, is nominated for best actress in a short-form comedy or drama series for "The Accidental Wolf", a thriller in which O'Hara plays Katie Bonner, a NY mother and wife who receives a desperate call from a stranger named Zuhair, pleading for her to save him and his pregnant wife.

Netflix gathered 112 nods for shows that ranged from supernatural drama "Stranger Things" and British royal show "The Crown" to female wrestling comedy "GLOW", new Western drama "Godless" and reality makeover series "Queer Eye". 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. "I share this moment with my community", Oh said in a statement.

"I think we're all happy with the direction we're going".

Who is World Cup final referee for France-Croatia?
Who wins England-Belgium? And where does all the value lie? "Maybe this game has a historic significance". Much of the talk was about whether finishing first or second in Group G would open up easier games.


Wiley herself is nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress, and she's joined in her category by fellow Handmaid's guest stars Kelly Jenrette and Cherry Jones.

Netflix's dystopian science-fiction show Black Mirror received seven nods for its USS: Callister episode from Season 4, including Outstanding Television Movie.

But the early money for the win in September is on Criss, a much lesser-known face who plays Versace's killer Andrew Cunanan in the FX drama.
