Game of Thrones racks up 22 Emmy nominations

Graham's on-screen "Gilmore" daughter Alexis Bledel is up for Best Drama Supporting Actress for "The Handmaid's Tale" one year after she won in the guest category for her role as a defiant professor-turned-handmaid.

Meanwhile, the platform breakdown saw streaming giant Netflix oust premium cable channel HBO from the top of the nominations tally. And during Thursday's 2018 Emmy nominations announcement, it was revealed that it's been nominated for 22 more, including Best Drama Series, Best Directing for a Drama Series and Best Writing for a Drama Series.

On the comedy side, last year's victor, Donald Glover for "Atlanta", goes up against Anthony Anderson, "black-ish"; Ted Danson, "The Good Place"; Larry David, "Curb Your Enthusiasm"; Bill Hader, "Barry"; and William H. Macy, "Shameless".

"GLOW" star Alison Brie wasn't nominated for her work on the Netflix series, in which she plays a struggling actress who joins a TV show focusing on women's wrestling. Silicon Valley and Curb Your Enthusiasm grabbed seven and four nominations each.

One show that stars a pair of local natives and has been nominated in the past was shut out in every major category. They're also announcing some pretty big nominations.
