  • Childish Gambino and 'Atlanta' Nominated for Four 2018 Emmys

For the first time since 2001, HBO did not lead the nominations. The streamer led the nominations with 112, while HBO scored 108.

In the comedy categories, hip-hop themed FX show "Atlanta" is up against Amazon's (AMZN.O) "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", ABC's (DIS.N) "black-ish", "GLOW", "Curb Your Enthusiasm", quirky comedy "Barry", tech comedy "Silicon Valley" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".

The show is also nominated for Oustanding Drama Series and casting as well as 10 other categories, so something tells us it won't be walking away empty handed on September 17. He earned the series' first major award in 2017, when he won the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series. Or maybe it's just that we're never going to be happy in this era of "peak TV". "We're grateful to all our nominees for making this the eighth year we've had 100 nominations or more".

Two black and Jewish actresses were nominated for best comedy guest actress: Tiffany Haddish, for her performance in an episode of "Saturday Night Live", and former "Saturday Night Live" star Maya Rudolph, for her performance in "The Good Place".

"Saturday Night Live", riding high with its relentless pillorying of the Trump administration, was rewarded with 21 nods. Yvonne Strahovski, Alexis Bledel, and Ann Dowd are all nominated for Supporting Actress, and Joseph Fiennes is nominated for Supporting Actor.

Although it's up for top series honors, it drew only three supporting acting bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.

Bruce Miller, executive producer of "The Handmaid's Tale", acknowledged that the show's vision of a theocracy where women are treated as property was hard to watch. "That's the wonderful thing about being recognized". Other nominees in the category include Jason Bateman ("Ozark"), Ed Harris ("Westworld") and Matthew Rhys ("The Americans").
