The streaming service's maneuvering (and not incidentally, expensive Emmy campaigning) paid off with 112 nominations - a significant increase over previous year, edging HBO's 108.

The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16.

Other drama series contenders are "Westworld" and "The Americans", nominated for its final season and with nods for stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys. A whopping five first-year dramas made the cut for best series nominations in 2017, Amazon's The Handmaid's Tale, which won, Netflix's The Crown and Stranger Things, HBO's Westworld and NBC's This Is Us. The minority nominations included a historic nod for Sandra Oh, who became the first nominee of Asian descent in the leading actress in a drama series for her role in the BBC America series Killing Eve.

Furthermore, Survivor host and executive producer Jeff Probst hasn't been nominated for the Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program Emmy since the last time he won; in 2011. That's because the streaming giant put an end to the premium cable channel's 17-year streak of garnering the most total nominations. He is also nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for "Saturday Night Live". Singer John Legend has the potential to complete the EGOT (winner of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award) with his nomination for "Jesus Christ Superstar Live".

Comedy series: Atlanta; Barry; Black-ish; Curb Your Enthusiasm; GLOW; The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; Silicon Valley; and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

"I share this moment with my community", Oh said in a statement.
