Today, the streaming giant received 112 Emmy nominations, besting HBO as the most nominated network or platform for the first time in 18 years, according to The Hollywood Reporter. And with the $8 billion that chief content officer Ted Sarandos expects to throw at original programming this year, next year's Emmy noms may look rather similar.

Hulu's "A Handmaid's Tale"-which won the award for best drama series last year-earned 20 nods".

The drama missed the awards in 2017 because of its production schedule but this year's nominations include nods for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.

Markle's name was submitted for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series" for her role as Rachel Zane on "Suits", but the newly-minted royal wasn't nominated.

HBO's Game of Thrones is closely followed by dystopian sci-fi series The Handmaid's Tale, which gained 20 nominations and won top drama previous year.

In a statement, HBO said it was "very pleased" with its nominations and the "wide range" of categories they inhabited. So let's go over all the snubs and surprises from the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations in the gallery below.

And while the high-profile broadcast revivals of Will & Grace on NBC and Roseanne on ABC were largely passed over, with one supporting nomination for each (Megan Mullally and Laurie Metfcalf, respectively), an SVOD player, Netflix, also scored in the revival department with its best series nom for Queer Eye.
