'Game of Thrones' slays with a leading 22 Emmy nominations

Emmy contenders for Best Drama Actress

HBO's Game of Thrones is closely followed by dystopian sci-fi series The Handmaid's Tale, which gained 20 nominations and won top drama a year ago.

The news was not so good for Nicole Kidman at Thursday's Emmy nomination ceremony in Los Angeles. He is also nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for "Saturday Night Live".

Add up all the award nominations and Netflix is now the top Emmy nominated "network", a term that we can now apply in the loosest of terms.

"The Handmaid's Tale, " the dystopian sci-fi series that claimed top drama honors last year, 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.

Hulu's "A Handmaid's Tale"-which won the award for best drama series last year-earned 20 nods". Game Of Thrones was the dominant series.

"Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert" was also showered with praise, as was "The Handmaid's Tale's" supporting cast, coming off a just-concluded second season that gave them an opportunity to shine.

For lead actor drama, the Television Academy nominated Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright, "Westworld"; Matthew Rhys, "The Americans"; and Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia of "This is Us".

Other best drama contenders include "The Crown", NBC's family drama "This Is Us", Cold War spy series "The Americans" on FX (FOXA.O) and "Westworld".

The Emmy awards will be handed out in Los Angeles on September 17 hosted by "Saturday Night Live" cast members Michael Che and Colin Jost. It's a steep fall-off from there, although 13 networks or services garnered 10 or more nominations, reflecting the breadth of competition that now characterizes the Emmy race in the age of "peak TV".
