The Emmy nominations are in and HBO's "Game of Thrones" leads the pack with 22 nominations. It wasn't until 2013 that Netflix won a single award for House of Cards, the first original online-only web television series to receive major nominations for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards and now, just five years later, Netflix has more awards than any other content maker.

The Hulu series, which is set in a dystopian MA, earned 20 nominations, including a repeat nomination for the victor of last year's Supporting Actress in a Drama Series award, Holyoke native Ann Dowd.
Leading the nominations in totals by platform were Netflix (112), leapfrogging last year's leader HBO, which scored 108.
FX's true crime dramatization "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" led the limited series category with 18 nominations, including a best actor nod for Darren Criss who plays the killer of the gay Italian fashion designer. She earned a nomination herself for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series past year. She wasn't nominated for an Emmy in 2017, either.
The 2018 Emmy Awards will air Monday, September 17 on NBC at 8 p.m. ET from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
On the comedy side, "Veep" and its star are on an extended hiatus, so this category is wide open for "Atlanta", "Barry", "black-ish", "Curb Your Enthusiasm, "GLOW", "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", "Silicon Valley" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".
