Ted Danson Earns Surprise Emmy Nomination for 'The Good Place'

Netflix scored 112 Emmy Awards nominations on Thursday, more than any other television network and breaking a streak that HBO held onto for 17 years. It was also the first time Apple Inc. was nominated, for its CBS collaboration "Carpool Karaoke".

The Emmy nominations are in and HBO's "Game of Thrones" leads the pack with 22 nominations.

Amazon's original shows received 22 nominations, including The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for the Best Comedy. The awards will be handed out at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on September 17 and broadcast on NBC.

FX's true crime dramatization "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" led the limited series category with 18 nominations, including a best actor nod for Darren Criss who plays the killer of the gay Italian fashion designer.

Saturday Night Live's Colin Jost and Michael Che will host the ceremony.

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.

The fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year.

But it was "Thrones" that set the Emmys pace with its seventh season, which aired last summer, earning recognition for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage and Diana Rigg. "That's the wonderful thing about being recognized".
