Emmy Award nominations: 'Handmaid's Tale' earns 20 nods

The nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmys held a clear sign of how much the ground is shifting under the TV industry: streaming service Netflix captured the most nominations overall, 112, taking away a title that HBO held since 2001 and giving broadcast TV more reason to fear its future in awards and viewers. And with the $8 billion that chief content officer Ted Sarandos expects to throw at original programming this year, next year's Emmy noms may look rather similar. She earned a nomination herself for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series previous year.

Its nominated shows include sci-fi drama Stranger Things, fictionalised royal biopic The Crown, comedy GLOW and western Godless.

In a statement, HBO said it was "very pleased" with its nominations and the "wide range" of categories they inhabited. If he wins this year, he'll tie Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul for the most wins in the Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category. It was a new high mark for both. "It's truly a Marvelous day!" The series' 20 nods were the fourth-most for any show, finishing only behind "Game of Thrones" (22), "Saturday Night Live" (21), and "Westworld" (21).

Worryingly, his presence on the court saw the Thunder's team plus/minus rating slide to negative 14.3 during the playoffs. The Rockets are among the teams that Anthony is reportedly interested in playing for, though money could be an issue.

While CBS also increased its Emmy nomination tally from 2017, ABC and Fox were down year-to-year.

Glover lands four nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for his work in FX's "Atlanta", which is this year's most-nominated comedy series with 16 nominations.
