The Emmy nominations are in and HBO's "Game of Thrones" leads the pack with 22 nominations. And during Thursday's 2018 Emmy nominations announcement, it was revealed that it's been nominated for 22 more, including Best Drama Series, Best Directing for a Drama Series and Best Writing for a Drama Series.

"We congratulate our creative partners on their unprecedented success today, garnering Netflix a leading 112 nominations", said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" comes in second with 20 nominations.

Markle's name was submitted for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series" for her role as Rachel Zane on "Suits", but the newly-minted royal wasn't nominated.

In a critical error, Mercedes chose to keep race leader Lewis Hamilton out and their victory hopes quickly unravelled from there. Formula One's unprecedented triple-header concludes next weekend (July 6-8) with the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Some of TV's biggest stars, as well as headline-grabbing shows, failed to get nominations this year. It's a steep fall-off from there, although 13 networks or services garnered 10 or more nominations, reflecting the breadth of competition that now characterizes the Emmy race in the age of "peak TV". He is also nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for "Saturday Night Live". And with Modern Family being shut out from the comedy series and acting categories for the first time, the broadcast networks slipped to 2 entrants in the top series categories - This Is Us for best drama and ABC's Black-ish for best comedy - tying an all-time low.

For the most part, though, this year's categories mark a pretty fair representation of TV's best and brightest, while adding drama to the battle that's been brewing to its two foremost bidders for awards prestige.
