Emmy Nominations: Modern Family, This Is Us and More Snubs and Surprises

Critic's picks for Emmy nominations Expect 'Handmaid's Tale' and 'Atlanta'

TV stars are undoubtedly on edge this morning as they wait to hear who will be honored with a nomination for the 2018 Emmy Awards. That's because the streaming giant put an end to the premium cable channel's 17-year streak of garnering the most total nominations. Game of Thrones topped all series with 22 Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series.

HBO is no piker: It claimed 108 bids.

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". This year she had a shot at a nomination for Best Comedy Guest Actress for her multi-episode arc on "Curb Your Enthusiasm", but she was left out again.

One show that stars a pair of local natives and has been nominated in the past was shut out in every major category.

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.

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 fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year.

Rhys and Brown will be up against Brown's castmate Milo Ventimiglia, along with Jason Bateman for "Ozark" and Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright for "Westworld".
