Following HBO and Netflix is the most traditional network of them all, NBC, which has a total of 78 nominations including 21 just for this season of Saturday Night Live and four for the night Donald Glover hosted. Medfield's Uzo Aduba has been nominated for Supporting Actress for "Orange Is the New Black" three times (winning twice, in 2014 and 2015), while Wayland and West Roxbury's Taylor Schilling was nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2014.

Other drama series contenders are "Westworld" and "The Americans", nominated for its final season and with nods for stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys.

When Netflix snapped HBO's 17-year streak as Emmy nominations leader, more than bragging rights switched hands.

"Game of Thrones" will compete for best drama with last year's Emmy champion, Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", which also won nods for actresses Elisabeth Moss, Alexis Bledel, Samira Wiley, Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski.

Only one of this year's categories, supporting actor in a drama, lacked any performers of color.
