Netflix is the most nominated network, with 112 - breaking a 17-year streak at the top for HBO.

The streaming service's maneuvering (and not incidentally, expensive Emmy campaigning) paid off with 112 nominations - a significant increase over previous year, edging HBO's 108.

It will also be in contention for directing, writing and a host of technical awards, as well as best drama, where the other rivals include FX's "The Americans", which wrapped recently and has four nods in total.

"Game of Thrones" was out of the running in 2017 because the show aired later than usual.
