The Emmy Awards nominations told us what is already evident - the power and reputation of streaming services Netflix and Amazon are on the rise, and broadcast networks and even longtime premium cable star HBO are paying the price. Its signature series "House of Cards" scored 13 nominations, tying its previous high in 2014.
FX earned 19 major nominations, primarily for the inaugural season of its "People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story".

While HBO remained a dominant force in the 68th Annual Emmy Awards nominations, the changing TV landscape brought on by online streaming services were reflected in the contenders announced Wednesday.
Britons Idris Elba, Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston will compete for best lead actor in a limited series or movie, while James Corden's Late, Late Show is nominated for best talk series. Both series were nominated for Best Series in their respective fields.
Meanwhile, the nominees for Outstanding Comedy are ABC's "Black-ish" and "Modern Family", Netflix's "Master of None" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", HBO's "Silicon Valley" and Amazon's "Transparent".
"I jumped up and down... more about that than about my own", Paulson said.
GoT is facing off with "The Americans", "Better Call Saul", "Downton Abbey", "Homeland", "House of Cards" and "Mr Robot" in the best drama category. "I owe my performance whatever it is to him".
The awards will be handed out in Los Angeles on 18 September.
David Schwimmer, who played Simpson's lawyer and friend Robert Kardashian, John Travolta, who portrayed defence lawyer Robert Shapiro, and Sterling K Brown, who played prosecutor Christopher Darden, are also nominated for best supporting actor in a limited series.
