Emmy Nominations: Modern Family, This Is Us and More Snubs and Surprises

Game of Thrones is the show leading the way in this year's Emmy awards race, with 22 nominations.

There was also an added bonus for Wiley-she landed her second Emmy nomination for Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her Hulu series.

The last time HBO wasn't the most nominated content provider was at the 52nd Primetime Emmy Awards in 2000, when Sex and the City and The Sopranos were just coming into their own. That's because the streaming giant put an end to the premium cable channel's 17-year streak of garnering the most total nominations. "We are pleased to have these two talented performers join us to announce this year's Emmy nominees and to celebrate television excellence". Meanwhile, HBO's Thrones and Westworld nabbed 22 and 21 nominations each, while the dark comedy Barry scored 13 nods.

While far behind leader Netflix, the other two established SVOD players, Hulu, who claimed the first best series win for a streamer a year ago with Handmaid's Tale, and Amazon/Prime Video, continue to gain ground. "We look forward to Sept 17th".

Without further ado, let's break down the numbers of this year's Emmy nominations. And with Modern Family being shut out from the comedy series and acting categories for the first time, the broadcast networks slipped to 2 entrants in the top series categories - This Is Us for best drama and ABC's Black-ish for best comedy - tying an all-time low.

The revival of "Roseanne, " canceled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet, drew only one major nomination, a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf.
