Top of the Lake: China Girl, shot in Sydney, also missed out in other categories, including best limited TV series, while lead actress Elisabeth Moss failed to earn a nomination.

And of course, Hulu's Handmaid's Tale (so successful at this year's Golden Globes) scored a nomination in the Outstanding Guest Role category for Samira Wiley.

The nominees for the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards have arrived and as expected, quite a few genre programs have received the recognition that they deserve.

The show about noble families vying for the Iron Throne faces tough competition from perennial favorite comedy sketch show "Saturday Night Live" and HBO stablemate "Westworld" with 21 nominations each.

The "This is Us" star, who plays mom Rebecca Pearson on the hit NBC tearjerker, wasn't among the names included in the "Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series" category.

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

"Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert" was also showered with praise, as was "The Handmaid's Tale's" supporting cast, coming off a just-concluded second season that gave them an opportunity to shine.

"The Assassination of Gianni Versace", one of the few serious contenders this year that can claim to be entirely new, picked up an impressive 18 nominations.

On the comedy side, last year's victor, Donald Glover for "Atlanta", goes up against Anthony Anderson, "black-ish"; Ted Danson, "The Good Place"; Larry David, "Curb Your Enthusiasm"; Bill Hader, "Barry"; and William H. Macy, "Shameless".

For lead actor drama, the Television Academy nominated Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright, "Westworld"; Matthew Rhys, "The Americans"; and Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia of "This is Us".

Sarah Paulson is nominated on the female side for her role in "American Horror Story: Cult", Ryan Murphy's twisted take on our political divide.
