Facts and figures about this year's Emmy Award nominations

The series' 20 nods were the fourth-most for any show, finishing only behind "Game of Thrones" (22), "Saturday Night Live" (21), and "Westworld" (21).

The list excluded long-running ABC comedy Modern Family, which has won five consecutive Best Comedy Emmys (2010 to 2014) and has earned a nomination in the category every year since its 2009 release. "I share this moment with my community", Oh said in a statement. The 70th Emmy Awards will be held on Monday, Sept. 17.

Although it's up for top series honors, it drew only three supporting acting bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage. "Game of Thrones" helped boost the premium cable service's total and became the most-nominated series of all time, with its 129 nods topping the 124 nominations earned by "ER".

Jessica Biel (The Sinner), Penelope Cruz (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), John Legend (Jesus Christ, Superstar), Ricky Martin (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) and Katt Williams (Atlanta) are all first-time nominees this year.

Several major stars not normally associated with television got their first Emmy nominations in 2018.

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.

HBO awards darling Veep was ineligible this year and its crown passed to Atlanta, the FX comedy created by and starring Donald Glover, which amassed 16 nods. Sterling K. Brown, who won lead actor in a drama series a year ago for the show, is nominated again; he'll compete against Jeffrey Wright ("Westworld").

Its medieval fantasy drama Game of Thrones led the pack among programmes, with mentions in 22 categories, including Outstanding Drama Series. It was not in the running in 2017.
