Australian Handmaid's Tale star scores Emmy nod

The Crown- Philip Elizabeth- Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip journey through Ghana

That's because the streaming giant put an end to the premium cable channel's 17-year streak of garnering the most total nominations.

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). It was among HBO's 108 nominations.

Since the first season of Game of Thrones, Dinklage has received a nomination for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series every year the show was eligible, and this year is no different.

Donald Glover's Atlanta was the top comedy series nominee the with 16 bids, poised to take advantage of the absence this time around of three-time victor Veep. This year she had a shot at a nomination for Best Comedy Guest Actress for her multi-episode arc on "Curb Your Enthusiasm", but she was left out again. They're also announcing some pretty big nominations.

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.

The series, which will not air this year, is in contention for the Emmy for Best Drama Series along with The Crown, The Americans, The Handmaid's Tale, Stranger Things, This Is Us and Westworld.

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".
