Australian Handmaid's Tale star Yvonne Strahovski lands Emmy nomination

Brian Tyree Henry appear in a scene from Atlanta

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" was the top comedy nominee with 16 bids, poised to take advantage of this year's absence of three-time victor "Veep".

NBC's "This Is Us", the show about a multicultural family that premiered to huge critical acclaim a year ago, received its second nomination for drama series.

While HBO's heavy hitters still racked up a dragon's hoard of nominations between them (Game of Thrones is nominated for 22 awards and Westworld has 21), Netflix has a number of shows that all have 10 awards or more including GLOW, Stranger Things, Godless and The Crown, which combined have 47 award nominations between them.

It was a very strong freshman class, and all five shows are back this year.

Netflix is the most nominated network, with 112 - breaking a 17-year streak at the top for HBO.

"The Handmaid's Tale, " the dystopian sci-fi series that claimed top drama honors last year, drew 20 bids, including one for last year's best actress victor, Elisabeth Moss, and supporting bids for Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Yvonne Strahovski and Joseph Fiennes.

Israel to touch the moon
At this point, it will ignite its engines and reduce its speed to allow the moon's gravity to capture it. Israel could become the fourth country that sent a spaceship to the moon after USA, Russia and China .

"I feel tremendous gratitude and joy with this nomination" and am "thrilled" for the show's cast and crew, Oh said in a statement. The Handmaid's Tale star Samira Wiley and New Amsterdam star Ryan Eggold were on hand to announce the nominations to the world on July 12 from the Wolf Theatre at the Television Academy's Saban Media Center.

Lead actor in a drama series: Jason Bateman (Ozark); Sterling K Brown (This Is Us); Ed Harris (Westworld); Matthew Rhys (The Americans); Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us); and Jeffrey Wright (Westworld).

Al Pacino, Kyle MacLachlan, and Michael B. Jordan were all in the hunt but missed out.

Returning after a two-decade hiatus, "Roseanne" was one of the few depictions of working-class life on U.S. television in the last 12 months, and also one of the only shows about Trump supporters otherwise largely ignored by Hollywood.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations are the culmination of a life's work and the goal of just about every television actor's career.

The 2018 Emmy Awards will air Monday, September 17 on NBC at 8 p.m. ET from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
