Game of Thrones leads Emmy nominations

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".

She was snubbed for her performance in Top of the Lake: China Girl, as was Naomi Watts for roles in Twin Peaks and the Netflix series Gypsy. She earned a nomination herself for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series previous year.

Last year, after "The Handmaid's Tale" helped Hulu break into the Emmy race in its biggest way yet, Craig Erwich, head of content at the streamer, revealed to Variety that their strategy of looking for shows that have "a big world, feel relevant and feel like television events" had paid off.

HBO's fantasy epic "Game of Thrones" led the field for television's prestigious Primetime Emmy awards on Thursday, with a whopping 22 nominations, including one for best drama series.

Comedy series: Atlanta; Barry; Black-ish; Curb Your Enthusiasm; GLOW; The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; Silicon Valley; and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Trade war Round 2? United States threatens new tariffs on China
The ministry said it "solemnly protests" the latest tariff list published by Washington, calling it "totally unacceptable". China's stocks slumped following news of the new tariffs after three days of gains, and the yuan weakened.

Meanwhile, the platform breakdown saw streaming giant Netflix oust premium cable channel HBO from the top of the nominations tally. If he wins this year, he'll tie Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul for the most wins in the Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category.

Following HBO and Netflix is the most traditional network of them all, NBC, which has a total of 78 nominations including 21 just for this season of Saturday Night Live and four for the night Donald Glover hosted.

Killing Eve star Sandra Oh made history of her own, becoming the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated for lead acting honours in a drama series.

Rhys and Brown will be up against Brown's castmate Milo Ventimiglia, along with Jason Bateman for "Ozark" and Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright for "Westworld".

The 70th Emmy Awards ceremony will be held at the Microsoft Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on September 17.
