Critic's picks for Emmy nominations Expect 'Handmaid's Tale' and 'Atlanta'

Glover lands four nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for his work in FX's "Atlanta", which is this year's most-nominated comedy series with 16 nominations.

All three Lannister siblings were also recognized, with Lena Headey earning her fourth Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role as Cersei while her on-screen brothers Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) picked up Best Supporting Actor nods. "The continued growth of the industry has provided opportunities for acclaimed new programs to emerge, while allowing last season's breakthrough programs to thrive". "We're grateful to all our nominees for making this the eighth year we've had 100 nominations or more".

HBO's fantasy dragons-and-swords saga is a two-time best drama victor that sat out the last year's awards because of its production schedule.

It takes nothing away from Netflix's banner day to note HBO's continued strengths, or that the streamer's best-ever Emmy nomination tally will not dramatically change the TV landscape.

Iran threat to pull out oil cushion
Sources told Reuters last month that private refiners Nayara Energy and Reliance Industries Ltd plan to halt Iranian oil imports. President Donald Trump withdrew the US from the 2015 nuclear deal on May 8 and plans to re-impose sanctions on Iran.

See the full list of 2018 Emmy noms here. The series' 20 nods were the fourth-most for any show, finishing only behind "Game of Thrones" (22), "Saturday Night Live" (21), and "Westworld" (21). They're also announcing some pretty big nominations. Other likely comedy nominees include Silicon Valley, black-ish and Will & Grace.

Competing with Moss, Oh and Russell for lead drama actress are Claire Foy for "The Crown", Tatiana Maslay of "Orphan Black" and Evan Rachel Wood of "Westworld".

While far behind leader Netflix, the other two established SVOD players, Hulu, who claimed the first best series win for a streamer past year with Handmaid's Tale, and Amazon/Prime Video, continue to gain ground.

The short-lived revival of "Roseanne", canceled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet, drew only one major nomination, a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf.
