Netflix overruns HBO in the 2018 Emmy nominations!

Emmy

The nominations for 70th Annual Emmy Awards – despite being predictable – still managed to surprise us to no end with their borderline obsession with Netflix!

The biggest shock, however, came about when HBO film’s Paterno – which was coined as a tailor-made performance by Al Pacino was given a royal snub. On the flipside of it all, as expected, HBO’s Game of Thrones earned more nominations than any other TV series with 22 nods across all categories, followed closely by Saturday Night Live and Westworld (with 21 nods each).

Netflix, meanwhile, earned more nominations than any other platform and dominated the Emmy’s—112 in total—with HBO (108) and NBC (78).
