Here's how many 2018 Emmy nods each show and platform received

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

The 2018 Emmy Awards nominations came out today, and of course, many fan favorites were left off of the list.

Samira Wiley, nominated for guest actress in "The Handmaid's Tale", and Ryan Eggold ("New Amsterdam") presented the nominations from the Television Academy in Los Angeles. Saturday Night Live and Westworld both grabbed 21 nominations each, while The Handmaid's Tale secured 20 nominations.

Best known for her role on Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black", Wiley is now starring on Hulu's critically acclaimed, Emmy-winning dystopian drama "The Handmaid's Tale".

On the comedy side, it'll probably be a toss-up between Atlanta and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for the series trophy, since reigning three-time victor Veep missed the eligibility period this year.

"Game of Thrones", which sat out the awards previous year because it missed the eligibility window, received 22 nominations, the most of any series. It will face newcomers including "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and "Barry", starring Bill Hader.

The previous high for "Game of Thrones" was 24 nominations in 2015.

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

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony will air live Monday, Sept. 17 on NBC.
