LOS ANGELES - When Netflix snapped HBO's 17-year streak as Emmy nominations leader, more than bragging rights switched hands. It represented the breathtaking change in how audiences get and watch TV and the threat to traditional TV networks from streaming services.

Especially one like Netflix, whose multibillion-dollar investment in programming allowed it to rocket Thursday to 112 nominations just five years after launching its first original series, "House of Cards." That's double the total of nods it earned in 2016 and just ahead of HBO's 108 nods (down two from 2017).

Another streamed series, Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale," earned 20 nominations and a chance to defend its title as best drama series at the 70th Primetime Emmy ceremony airing Sept. 17 on NBC.

HBO still boasts the year's most-nominated series, "Game of Thrones" (22 nods) and "Westworld" (20), while Netflix fielded "The Crown" (13 nods) and "Stranger Things (12).

"The more distribution platforms, the more content's getting created, the more people are going to be working. ... It's good news for us in the industry," said Maury McIntyre, TV academy president. It's also good news for viewers, he said, who will "always be able to find something they're going to like."

"It all about niche broadcasting now. You can make a show and find an audience. It may not be a core audience, but it can be a hard-core audience," he said.

Emmys: Late-Night Hosts Celebrate and Poke Fun at Nominations

  Emmys: Late-Night Hosts Celebrate and Poke Fun at Nominations Emmys: Late-Night Hosts Celebrate and Poke Fun at NominationsAmongst those nominated included Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Last Week Tonight and Full Frontal with Samantha Bee in categories that include best variety talk series, variety special, writing for a variety series and directing for a variety series.

HBO 's fantasy dragons-and-swords saga is a two-time best drama winner that sat out last year 's awards because of its production schedule. Although it's up for top series honors, it drew only three supporting actor bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Netflix snapped HBO 's 17 - year streak as Emmy nominations leader, more than bragging rights switched hands. It represented the breathtaking change in how audiences get and watch TV and the threat to traditional TV networks from streaming services.

Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer, saluted "our creative partners on their unprecedented success today" in a statement noting that the nominations were gained across a wide variety of categories, including scripted, documentary and comedy specials.

Netflix's deep-pockets approach has lured a number of TV's biggest creative stars, including Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy, away from traditional outlets.

Broadcast networks are taking the hardest blow, with their ratings as well as awards diminishing as viewers search out the more distinctive — and edgy — programming on unregulated cable and streaming outlets. Police procedurals and the current network rage for sitcom revivals certainly failed to impress Emmy voters.

The short-lived revival of "Roseanne," cancelled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet, drew only one major nomination, a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf. Another revival, "Will & Grace," got Emmy love for nominees Megan Mullally and Molly Shannon but the main stars and series itself were snubbed.

In the drama and comedies series categories, NBC drama "This Is Us" and ABC sitcom "black-ish" are the sole network contenders. NBC topped the broadcast tally with 78 nominations, fueled by 21 bids for "Saturday Night Live," still on a satiric tear against the Trump administration.

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" was the top comedy series nominee with 16 bids, poised to take advantage of the absence this time around of three-time winner "Veep." ''Atlanta" will face newcomers including "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," ''GLOW" and "Barry." Others in the category include "black-ish," ''Silicon Valley," ''Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt."

The newbie comedies aced out long-time Emmy favourite "Modern Family," a five-time winner and perennial nominee since it debuted in 2009 on ABC.

"Killing Eve" star Sandra Oh made as the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated for lead acting honours in a drama series. Oh had earned five supporting bids for "Grey's Anatomy."

"I feel tremendous gratitude and joy with this nomination" and am "thrilled" for the show's cast and crew, Oh said in a statement. She added a postscript: "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied".

The TV industry has made recent strides toward inclusion, with Glover and Sterling K. Brown of "This Is Us" winning top acting awards last year and both nominated again. Only one nominations category is all-white, and in three categories minority actors account for more than half the nominees.

Among the notable first-time nominees: Issa Rae for "Insecure," Darren Criss, Ricky Martin and Penelope Cruz for "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story," Tiffany Haddish for "Saturday Night Live," Letitia Wright for "Black Museum (Black Mirror)" and John Legend for "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert."

If Legend wins, he'll join the rarified club of "EGOT" performers who've won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

HBO's fantasy dragons-and-swords saga is a two-time best drama winner that sat out the last year's awards because of its production schedule. Although it's up for top series honours, it drew only three supporting actor bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.

"The Handmaid's Tale," the dystopian sci-fi series based on Margaret Atwood's novel, drew 20 bids, including one for last year's best actress winner, Elisabeth Moss, and supporting bids for Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Yvonne Strahovski and Joseph Fiennes.
