First-year comedies had the best showing in the comedy series category in nearly two decades, with three nominees, Amazon/Prime Video'sThe Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, HBO's Barry, and Netflix's GLOW.

The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16.

NBC's "This Is Us", the show about a multicultural family that premiered to huge critical acclaim past year, received its second nomination for drama series.

On the down side, the balloting felt unduly generous to a disjointed second season of HBO's "Westworld", which ranked behind only "Game of Thrones" - back in the race after a year hiatus - in terms of total nominations, tied with "Saturday Night Live", and followed by "The Handmaid's Tale".

Here's your first look at 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters'
The pair are kidnapped by what Dougherty describes as "a mysterious organization, with their own plans for the creatures". Speaking of which, does Dougherty set up that face-off in his film? Bread crumbs the size of boulders, we assume.

The show is also nominated for Oustanding Drama Series and casting as well as 10 other categories, so something tells us it won't be walking away empty handed on September 17.

However, "GLOW" has two other nominations, including "Outstanding Comedy Series" and "Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series". The fantasy drama, meanwhile, leads the Emmys with 22 nominations to The Handmaid's Tale's 20 - which includes an Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series nom for Canadian Kari Skogland. This is the seventh nomination for Dinklage (who won in both 2011 and 2015) and the very first for Coster-Waldau. Megan Amram, nominated for "An Emmy for Megan", scored two noms her first time at Emmy bat, with short-form actress, as well as short-form series.

The most star-studded category, as is often the case, was best actor in a limited series or TV movie, where Antonio Banderas, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Legend and Jeff Daniels all picked up nominations. Issa Rae became a first-time nominee for her role in "Insecure", while Rachel Brosnahan (Lead Actress in a Comedy for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel") and Bill Hader (Lead Actor in a Comedy for "Barry") are first-time nominees for their categories.

"I feel tremendous gratitude and joy with this nomination" and am "thrilled" for the show's cast and crew, Oh said in a statement.
