The streaming giant has received 112 nominations for the 70th annual primetime Emmy Awards. That’ s up more than 20 from 2017, when it scored 91 nominations . Netflix ends a 17 - year winning streak by HBO , which previously topped the nominations .

HBO's new corporate boss, Warner Media CEO John Stankey, said in a recent town hall meeting that HBO would move to produce a higher quantity of TV shows and movies in order to compete in the new landscape, presumably referring to pressure from streaming services like Netflix.

The shift is a marked contrast for HBO, as HBO CEO Richard Plepler last year distanced his network from Netflix's production model, saying that "more is not better, only better is better."

Netflix's "more, more, more" model seems to have worked this year in snagging Emmy nominations, now we'll see if the awards follow.
