Streaming rules Emmys as Netflix snaps 17-year HBO streak

Emmy Awards

HBO's (T.N) medieval fantasy series "Game of Thrones" led nominations for the Emmy Awards on Thursday that spanned satire to the supernatural, but streaming service Netflix (NFLX.O) knocked HBO off its 17-year pedestal as the network with the most nods. HBO still managed to earn 108 nominations for shows like Thrones and Westworld, but Netflix's collective might at producing increasingly good original content resulted in a massive 112 total nominations. It was followed by NBC's CMSCA.O sketch show "Saturday Night Live" and HBO's sci-fi series "Westworld" with 21 nominations each, and Hulu's dystopian vision "The Handmaid's Tale" with 20.

Every year, there are some surprising oversights.

Alison Brie was also a notable oversight for her standout work in "GLOW", the Netflix period female-wrestling comedy, as was "Modern Family", although after its glittering streak of Emmy nominations, it's hard to fault anyone for concluding the ABC sitcom's best days are behind it, especially with so many worthy newcomers to accommodate. The 70th annual Emmy Awards will air September 17 on NBC. Silicon Valley and Curb Your Enthusiasm grabbed seven and four nominations each.

Besides the repeat nomination for Dowd, "The Handmaid's Tale" scored nods for Drama Series, Actress in a Drama Series (Elisabeth Moss), Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Joseph Fiennes), and two additional nominations for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Alexis Bledel and Yvonne Strahovski). Although it's up for top series honors, it drew only three supporting actor bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.

The dystopian sci-fi series drew 20 bids, including one for last year's best actress victor, Elisabeth Moss, and supporting bids for Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Yvonne Strahovski and Joseph Fiennes. "That's the wonderful thing about being recognized".
