Australian Handmaid's Tale star Yvonne Strahovski lands Emmy nomination

Netflix has received more nominations for Emmy Awards than HBO, breaking the TV network's 17-year streak, TechCrunch reported.

For the first time since 2001, HBO did not lead the nominations.

Also among the nominations: singer John Legend is up for lead actor in a miniseries or movie for his work in "Jesus Christ Superstar: Live in Concert". The streaming service led the nominations in totals by platform with 112.

"Maisel", Amazon Studios' popular series set in a very Jewish 1950s NY neighborhood, was nominated for best comedy series.

This Is Hurricane Chris' Path and Forecast
Hurricane Chris is expected to make landfall on Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula late on July 5 as a post-tropical depression. Just like Chris, rough seas from Beryl would lead to risky beach conditions along the East Coast by the weekend.

The smash hit HBO show, which returns for a shortened eighth and final season next year, will compete once again for the coveted best drama series prize, several acting trophies and a slew of technical awards.

Saturday Night Live's Michael Che and Colin Jost will co-host 70th Emmy Awards, airing live on Monday, Sept. 17, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

"I think we're all happy with the direction we're going". The show featuring chef-writer Bourdain, who died in early June, has won four Emmys. Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" comes in second with 20 nominations.

NBC - anchored by "Saturday Night Live" and "This is Us" - ranked third overall, garnering 78 Emmy bids, followed by the FX network, with 50.

Isaiah Thomas agrees to one-year deal with Denver Nuggets
The Kings selected Thomas in the second round (60th overall) in the 2011 draft out of the University of Washington. If Thomas can return halfway to his 2016-17 form, the Nuggets could be very risky next season.

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

Besides the repeat nomination for Dowd, "The Handmaid's Tale" scored nods for Drama Series, Actress in a Drama Series (Elisabeth Moss), Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Joseph Fiennes), and two additional nominations for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Alexis Bledel and Yvonne Strahovski). "That's the wonderful thing about being recognized".

For lead actor drama, the Television Academy nominated Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright, "Westworld"; Matthew Rhys, "The Americans"; and Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia of "This is Us".
