Netflix topples HBO in Emmy nominations, but 'Game of Thrones' still rules

The 46-year-old actress, who will be competing in the category against last year's victor Elisabeth Moss, Claire Foy, Tatiana Maslany, Keri Russell and Evan Rachel Wood, opened up about the historic nomination shortly after it was announced. Rae was nominated Thursday for an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series.

From HBO hits like "Game of Thrones", "Barry", and "Westworld" to FX's "Atlanta" to Netflix's "Glow", a wide range of shows garnered nominations this year.

Netflix's deep-pockets approach has lured a number of TV's biggest creative stars, including Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy, away from traditional outlets.

Additionally, John Legend was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Limited Series Of Movie for his portrayal of Jesus Christ in Jesus Christ Superstar. Saturday Night Live's Colin Jost and Michael Che will host the ceremony.

Amazon's original shows received 22 nominations, including The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for the Best Comedy.

Australian actress Yvonne Strahovski has scored her first ever Emmy nomination for her role in The Handmaid's Tale.

He earned the series' first major award in 2017, when he won the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.
