Leading the nominations in totals by platform were Netflix (112), leapfrogging last year's leader HBO, which scored 108.

HBO's Game of Thrones may have just become the Emmy Awards' most-nominated program ever, with nominations in a whopping 22 categories, but this year's standout is Netflix.

"Game of Thrones", which sat out the awards previous year because it missed the eligibility window, received 22 nominations, the most of any series.

There was also an added bonus for Wiley-she landed her second Emmy nomination for Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her Hulu series.

"It's been another record-breaking year with more than 9,100 entries in 122 unique categories for the initial nomination round of voting", Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington said in a statement. "We are pleased to have these two talented performers join us to announce this year's Emmy nominees and to celebrate television excellence".

Look, we're happy for those who did get nominated (most of them, anyway), but COME ON!

Glover lands four nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for his work in FX's "Atlanta", which is this year's most-nominated comedy series with 16 nominations.

The drama missed the awards in 2017 because of its production schedule but this year's nominations include nods for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.
