Game of Thrones leads Emmy nominations

Game of Thrones leads Emmy nominations

The 2018 Emmy nominations were revealed on Thursday morning, and while there were some pleasant surprises, along with some stale favorites (William H. Macy again?), there were also some very notable absences.

Graham's on-screen "Gilmore" daughter Alexis Bledel is up for Best Drama Supporting Actress for "The Handmaid's Tale" one year after she won in the guest category for her role as a defiant professor-turned-handmaid.

In a statement, HBO said it was "very pleased" with its nominations and the "wide range" of categories they inhabited.

Some of music's biggest names including Donald Glover, John Legend, and Bruno Mars are among the nominees for the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

"Game of Thrones", which sat out the awards previous year because it missed the eligibility window, received 22 nominations, the most of any series. Silicon Valley and Curb Your Enthusiasm grabbed seven and four nominations each.

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

CNN's "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown", received a nomination in the category for best information series or special, which also includes shows with Leah Remini and David Letterman.

It has 22 nominations, followed by Saturday Night Live and Westworld with 21 each.

Lead actress in a drama series: Claire Foy (The Crown); Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black); Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale); Sandra Oh (Killing Eve); Keri Russell (The Americans) and Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld).
