However, Mandy Moore was not nominated for Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Nominations for 1970s-steeped horror mashup "Stranger Things" included Millie Bobby Brown as genetically enhanced heroine "Eleven".

McCarthy, who has one Emmy win in seven previous nominations, faces competition in the category from fellow SNL alum Kristen Wiig.

She was nominated in the outstanding guest actress in a comedy series category for her role in Amazon's "Catastrophe". 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. The field for Outstanding Limited Series is dominated by fascinating, vital studies of power and femininity in Big Little Lies and Feud: Bette and Joan, which earned 16 and 18 nominations, respectively.

And Saul, which will return to Albuquerque to film its fourth season in the fall, was again nominated for outstanding drama series; it was nominated twice before but lost each time to Game of Thrones. New series Stranger Things and The Crown, both of which garnered significant press, were also acknowledged.

The only broadcast network in the mix is NBC, with a nomination for "This is Us" - notable, given that the last time a broadcast network competed in this category was in 2011, for CBS's "The Good Wife". And it's been wonderful to see the first three shows that were announced as nominees for best comedy all starred people of color. It tied with "Saturday Night Live" for most nominated.

The comedies battling it out for the Emmy are Atlanta, Black-ish, Master of None, Modern Family, Silicon Valley, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Veep.

EasyJet picks Austrian base for post-Brexit plan
Easyjet Europe will use existing staff and aeroplanes that are already employed and based in European Union countries. The UK headquarters, based in Luton, will be unaffected by the change, according to a spokesman.

Fellow fan favorite Lena Waithe also earned a nomination for her first writing gig ever - a much-praised Thanksgiving-themed episode of "Master of None's" second season, which tackled her character Denise's coming out story in a way no other show has ever explored.

Also nominated: "We Tapped That Ass" from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and "Hell No", Tituss Burgess's take on Beyoncé's "Hold Up" from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Both Hugh Laurie ("House") and Kyle Chandler ("Friday Night Lights") were up for the statue that year, with Chandler ultimately taking it home for a series that started on broadcast, but moved to satellite service DirecTV in its final year.

In limited series, "FEUD" seems strong even though Carrie Coon ("Fargo") had a great finale and "Big Little Lies" was a huge popcorn event.

The award will be presented on September 17 in a grand ceremony. 17 on CBS, will be hosted by Stephen Colbert.

When viewers tune in the Emmycast in September, they may never have seen, nor even heard of, numerous programs competing for awards.
