For the first year, Netflix have beaten HBO as the network with the most overall nods, with the streaming giant's productions - which include The Crown, Ozark and Stranger Things - earning it 112 nominations across the board, four more than HBO.

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 Hulu series, which is set in a dystopian MA, earned 20 nominations, including a repeat nomination for the victor of last year's Supporting Actress in a Drama Series award, Holyoke native Ann Dowd.

The revival of "Roseanne, " canceled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet, drew only one major nomination, a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf. Although it's up for top series honors, it drew only three supporting actor bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.

The Emmy Awards will be presented September 17 on NBC with Colin Jost and Michael Che of "Saturday Night Live" as hosts.
