GAME OF THRONES Leads 2018 Emmy Nominations with 22


When you play against Game of Thrones, you win or you die.

After sitting out last year, HBO's Game of Thrones returned as strong as ever, leading with a total of 22 nominations for the 2018 Emmy Awards, including acting nominations for 
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, and Dame Diana Rigg.

HBO's science fiction western thriller Westworld followed right behind with 21, including acting nominations for Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, and Jimmi Simpson.

Netflix's fan-favorite series Stranger Things was down from last year, with 12 for its second season and more acting nominations for David Harbour and Millie Bobby Brown.

Showtime's revival of Twin Peaks was shut out of the major categories for some inexplicable reason, but earned 9 nominations, including co-creators Mark Frost and David Lynch.  Netflix's sci-fi anthology Black Mirror earned 8 nominations, while FX's American Horror Story: Cult earned 7 nominations.

Other recognized geek-favorite shows include USA Network's Mr. Robot, Disney XD's Star Wars Rebels, Netflix's Altered Carbon, Cartoon Network's Rick and Morty, Fox's The Simpsons, and CBS All Access' Star Trek: Discovery.

In addition to Kyle MacLachlan being snubbed for Twin Peaks, some notable oversights included FX's Legion and Netflix's Lost in Space, both of which only earned a single nomination.

You can read the full list of nominations HERE, but this is the breakdown for the shows listed above...
