The 2018 Emmy nominations have been announced this morning, in a livestream hosted by Handmaid's Tale's Samira Wiley and New Amsterdam's Ryan Eggold. The main categories have now all been announced: for the first time in 18 years, HBO lost out on the most nominations for a network, with 108 in total to Netflix's 112. 

Game of Thrones leads with 22 nominations, followed by 21 each for Westworld and Saturday Night Live. Notable names off this year's list: Jeffrey Tambor's role on Transparent, after he was booted from the show, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Veep, after filming was put on hiatus while she underwent treatment for cancer.

As predicted, frontrunners for Best Actress like Elisabeht Moss in Handmaid's Tale, Claire Foy in The Crown, and Tatiana Maslany in Orphan Black all scored noms. Sandra Oh also received recognition for season 1 of Killing Eve. Sarah Paulson scored a nom for American Horror Story and Laura Dern for The Tale, as well as Darren Criss for American Crime Story and Jesse Plemons for Black Mirror.  Newcomer HBO comedy Barry earned a Best Comedy and Best Actor nom for Bill Hader. 

Drag Race scored a nom in the Best Reality Series category, and all the regulars like Westworld, Atlanta, Handmaid's Tale, and Stranger Things found noms in their respective Comedy and Drama categories.

The 2018 Emmys will take place on September 17, hosted by Colin Jost and Michael Che. Full list via live-stream here.
