Chance the Rapper, Donald Glover, John Legend Nominated for Emmys

The streaming service's maneuvering (and not incidentally, expensive Emmy campaigning) paid off with 112 nominations - a significant increase over previous year, edging HBO's 108.

The newbie comedies aced out long-time Emmy favourite "Modern Family", a five-time victor and perennial nominee since it debuted in 2009 on ABC.

The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16. The series' 20 nods were the fourth-most for any show, finishing only behind "Game of Thrones" (22), "Saturday Night Live" (21), and "Westworld" (21).

The last time there were no freshman dramas in the top category was 2009 when sophomore Mad Men won its second straight best series title.

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). Its absence leaves just one network contender for best comedy, ABC's "black-ish", which also earned nods for Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson, who noted his urban California roots.

The remains of some USA soldiers were last returned in 2007 , when then-New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson visited Pyongyang. What about the planned repatriation meeting? It had been expected on Thursday at the inter-Korean truce village of Panmunjom.

One show that stars a pair of local natives and has been nominated in the past was shut out in every major category. This year, he's also nominated as an Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series for his appearance on Saturday Night Live where he served as a host and musical guest, performing as Childish Gambino.

The TV industry has made recent strides toward inclusion, with Glover and Sterling K. Brown of "This Is Us" winning top acting awards previous year and both nominated again.

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

Meanwhile, on the acting side, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage scored supporting actor noms, while Lena Headey saw a supporting actress nod.

Glover and Anderson's competitors for best comedy series actor are Ted Danson for "The Good Place", Larry David for "Curb Your Enthusiasm", William H. Macy for "Shameless" and Bill Hader for "Barry".
