Netflix's 112 nominations took away the front-runner title that HBO held since 2001, giving cable and broadcast networks more reason to fear their future as the TV industry continues to change.

The comedy crown usually stored in the "Veep" trophy cabinet went this year to "Atlanta", the FX comedy created by and starring Donald Glover, which amassed 16 nods.

The smash hit HBO show, which returns for a shortened eighth and final season next year, will compete once again for the coveted best drama series prize, several acting trophies and a slew of technical awards.

It was a very strong freshman class, and all five shows are back this year.

When Netflix snapped HBO's 17-year streak as Emmy nominations leader, more than bragging rights switched hands.

HBO is no piker: It claimed 108 bids.
