That's because the streaming giant put an end to the premium cable channel's 17-year streak of garnering the most total nominations.

Speaking to Vulture, Yvonne said she was thrilled about earning her first Emmys nod.

The Handmaid's Tale was one of the big winners with 20 nominations overall. "The continued growth of the industry has provided opportunities for acclaimed new programs to emerge, while allowing last season's breakthrough programs to thrive".

The nominees for the 70th Emmy Awards were announced Thursday morning by actors Samira Wiley (The Handmaid's Tale) and Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist) at 8:30 a.m. PT. The two drama series picked up 13 and 12 nods respectively, and both were recognized in the coveted top drama category.

It comes as fellow Australian actresses Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts failed to receive any Emmy nominations for their recent TV performances.
