Another big story on Thursday was Netflix ending a 17-year winning streak by HBO.

While other streaming services didn't do as well as Netflix did, Hulu was nominated for 27 awards, and Amazon Prime was right behind them at 22 - most of which are from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. NBC was a distant third with 78, a figure that put it first among broadcast networks.

For the most part, though, this year's categories mark a pretty fair representation of TV's best and brightest, while adding drama to the battle that's been brewing to its two foremost bidders for awards prestige.

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.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace, one of the few serious contenders this year that can claim to be entirely new, picked up an impressive 18 nominations.

As expected David Harbour's Sheriff Jim Hopper on Stranger Things received a nomination this year for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

Four men can also be seen joining the woman in the attack, according to video obtained by one of the witnesses. Without warning, the woman hit him with a concrete block, he said, and enlisted a group of men to kick him.

Last year, FX's "Atlanta" was the lone freshman comedy to break into the series race at the Emmys, while the drama category saw five of its seven nominees be first-timers. Or maybe it's just that we're never going to be happy in this era of "peak TV".

Wiley herself is nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress, and she's joined in her category by fellow Handmaid's guest stars Kelly Jenrette and Cherry Jones.

Notably missing from the list of nominees is Roseanne Barr, whose successful sitcom reboot was cut short after a racist tweet controversy.

But the scandal appeared not to have tainted much-admired Tony victor and Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf, Roseanne's sister Jackie in the show, who picked up her eighth nomination.

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards will kick off on Sunday, Sept. 17, at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
