This year's Emmy nominations played out as expected

Earlier today, the nominees for the 2017 Emmy Awards have been announced, and Game of Thrones was missing, but why? HBO, which has been available over-the-top since 2015 via HBO NOW, leads all networks with a total of 110 nominations, and Netflix is close behind, with a total of 91 nominations. He'll compete in the Guest Actor in a Drama Series category against Denis O'Hare, who plays Jesse on the NBC drama This Is Us.

"The Handmaid's Tale" and "Westworld" are in competition with each other - and a high-quality pack that includes "The Crown" (which details Queen Elizabeth II's own encounters with sexism), "Stranger Things" (which features an alien girl who escaped her oppressors), "House of Cards" (which features a ruthless woman president), "Better Call Saul" and "This is Us". And Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" brings another streamer into that race.

James Corden's The Late Late Show will face off in the variety talk series category with Birmingham's John Oliver, who netted eight nominations for his United States political show Last Week Tonight.

The nominations for the 69th annual prime-time Emmy Awards are in, and newcomer HBO drama "Westworld" and late night comedy mainstay "Saturday Night Live" lead the way with 22 nominations each.

HBO's fantasy epic about noble families vying for control of the Iron Throne raked in a record-breaking 12 awards past year, but was ineligible this time around since the new season doesn't start until Sunday. Two years ago, Netflix earned 92 fewer nominations than HBO; this year, it has just 19 fewer, the report notes.

The comedy contenders include ABC's "black-ish", Netflix's "Master of None" and FX's "Atlanta".

Republicans introduce latest Trumpcare bill into Senate
They are anxious about spending reductions to Medicaid for low-income families, people with disabilities and seniors. It would also allow Americans to use money in their health savings accounts to pay for their premiums.

HBO is on the map for limited series, too, with "Big Little Lies" and "The Night of", as well as for its TV movies "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks", and "Wizard of Lies". Netflix's entry in this latter category is "Black Mirror".

"Game of Thrones" made television history previous year, becoming the most decorated fictional show since the awards began almost seven decades ago with nine awards in technical categories and three top prizes. This year it has many strong chances to do so, with 18 total Emmy nods. The company is nearly doubling its nomination count every year, but it's also producing a mind-boggling 600 hours of content and spending $6 billion a year to do so.

That also means Hulu is actually ahead of Amazon, which has 16 nominations - the same as a year ago. "You saw Samantha Bee get her first nomination".
