HBO's Game of Thrones may have just become the Emmy Awards' most-nominated program ever, with nominations in a whopping 22 categories, but this year's standout is Netflix.

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. And with the $8 billion that chief content officer Ted Sarandos expects to throw at original programming this year, next year's Emmy noms may look rather similar.

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. "We are pleased to have these two talented performers join us to announce this year's Emmy nominees and to celebrate television excellence".


Additionally, Netflix also made gains in the reality space with the Queer Eye revival, which landed multiple noms, including best Structured Reality TV series 14 years after winning a Best Reality Show Emmy. Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" comes in second with 20 nominations. If he wins this year, he'll tie Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul for the most wins in the Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category. Meanwhile, HBO's Thrones and Westworld nabbed 22 and 21 nominations each, while the dark comedy Barry scored 13 nods.

Without further ado, let's break down the numbers of this year's Emmy nominations.

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