Emmy Nominations: Modern Family, This Is Us and More Snubs and Surprises

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

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

"Game of Thrones" roared back onto the Emmy battlefield, topping Thursday's nominations with 22 bids but facing a formidable opponent in "The Handmaid's Tale, " last year's top drama series.

"We congratulate our creative partners on their unprecedented success today, garnering Netflix a leading 112 nominations", said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.

Diana Rigg's turn as Olenna Tyrell in the series has seen her nominated for Guest Actress in a Drama Series.

Comparatively, not one of the 10 most nominated shows this year comes from Netflix, showing that there's plenty of award-worthy entertainment across the platform - not just genre nominated shows like Stranger Things and Black Mirror, but also the likes of Ozark, Godless, Glow, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and The Crown.

Look, we're happy for those who did get nominated (most of them, anyway), but COME ON! Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" comes in second with 20 nominations.

For the most part, though, this year's categories mark a pretty fair representation of TV's best and brightest, while adding drama to the battle that's been brewing to its two foremost bidders for awards prestige. So let's go over all the snubs and surprises from the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations in the gallery below.

The revival of "Roseanne, " canceled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet, drew only one major nomination, a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf. And HBO's "Barry" made a significant mark on the comedy voting, where Donald Glover's "Atlanta" led the way, in a field thrown wide open by the absence of three-time champ "Veep" from this year's list of contenders.
