This year's top nominees include Game of Thrones and The Crown

Game of Thrones
1 of 16 HBO

Game of Thrones (22)

HBO's seminal fantasy drama picked up the most nominations including Outstanding Drama and supporting acting nods for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey and Peter Dinklage. Dinklage makes history this year as the most-nominated actor ever in the category with seven nominations total; he previously won in 2011 and 2015.

Saturday Night Live (21)

Lorne Michaels' long-running series earned 21 nominations, including Outstanding Variety Sketch Series and Writing for a Variety Sketch Series. Plus, Kenan Thompson picked up his first acting nod for Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. After breaking Darrell Hammond's record as the longest-tenured cast member with 15 seasons, it's safe to say that this nomination is long overdue.

Westworld (21)

The second season of HBO's enigmatic sci-fi drama was a hit among critics and fans alike, which is why it's not surprising that the show picked up 21 Emmy nominations this year, including Outstanding Drama Series. Plus, Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright secured nods for lead actor, Evan Rachel Wood earned one for lead actress and Thandie Newton picked up a nomination for supporting actress.

The Handmaid's Tale (20)

Hulu's dystopian drama made history last year when it won the Emmy for Outstanding Drama -- the first streaming service to take home the statuette in that category. This year, the series racked up 20 nominations including Outstanding Drama Series and Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Elisabeth Moss). Recognizing the show's strong supporting cast, Alexis Bledel, Yvonne Strahovski and Ann Dowd all earned nods for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama (Dowd took home the statuette last year) and Samira Wiley earned a nomination for guest actress.

Atlanta (16)

The show's standout second season earned rave reviews and a total of 16 nominations this year, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series (Brian Tyree Henry) and Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (Zazie Beetz). Plus, that much-talked about "Teddy Perkins" episode -- which featured a disturbingly unrecognizable Donald Glover in whiteface -- earned Hiro Murai a nod for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.

7 of 16 Nicole Rivelli/Amazon

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (14)

The Amazon comedy from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino picked up 14 nominations including Outstanding Comedy, Lead Actress in a Comedy (Rachel Brosnahan), Supporting Actor in a Comedy (Tony Shalhoub) and Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (Alex Borstein).

Barry (13)

One of this year's most exciting new shows, the HBO comedy featuring Bill Hader as a depressed assassin-turned-actor secured 13 nominations including Outstanding Comedy Series and Directing for a Comedy Series. The show was also recognized for its stellar acting with Hader getting the nod for Lead Actor in a Comedy and Henry Winkler picking up one for Supporting Actor in a Comedy.

The Crown (13)

This year, Netflix toppled HBO with the most nominations overall for a single platform (112 total) and that's due in part to The Crown's 13 nods, including Outstanding Drama Series. With the show switching out its core cast in Season 3 to tackle Queen Elizabeth's later years, Claire Foy ends her run on a high note with a nod for Lead Actress in a Drama. Plus, Vanessa Kirby picked up a nomination for Supporting Actress in a Drama and Matt Smith earned a nod for Supporting Actor in a Drama.

Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert (13)

NBC took a big risk with its live production of the acclaimed musical and it paid off. The show scored 13 Emmy nominations including Lead Actor in a Limited Series for John Legend's performance as Jesus Christ. If he wins the Emmy, he'll make history as the 13th EGOT winner, something we'd like to see happen!
