The Handmaid's Tale, Stranger Things, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Crown proved once again that streaming is here to stay, racking up a seriously impressive number of nominations. Other choice favorites like Game of Thrones, This Is Us and Westworld had a nice turn out too, and Jesus Christ Superstar walked away with a surprising 13 nominations, including a lead actor nod for potential EGOT-winner John Legend.
Celebs shared their shock, congratulations and, in some cases, snark on social media. Though honestly, we're not sure anyone's reaction beats Samira Wiley's "That's cool!" when she was told on-air that she was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series right after she made the announcements.

13 nominations for Jesus Christ Superstar this morning! John got two emmy nominations! If he wins, he will complete his EGOT and my spike tv award will probably be moved. But it's ok I AM SO PROUD!— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 12, 2018

This man has been cracking us up on SNL for over a decade. First ever nomination today. I hope he wins retroactively for all the late-night laughs he's given us. Sometimes he actually makes me cry tears I laugh so hard. Talented! #Emmys https://t.co/YN8mDJV6To— Ava DuVernay (@ava) July 12, 2018
