Samira Wiley, Ryan Eggold To Announce 2018 Emmy Awards Nominations

Game of Thrones is the show leading the way in this year's Emmy awards race, with 22 nominations. He is also nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for "Saturday Night Live".

Every year, there are some surprising oversights.

Check out the full list of nominations here.

The news was not so good for Nicole Kidman, who was snubbed for her performance in Top of the Lake: China Girl, and Naomi Watts - for roles in Twin Peaks and Gypsy - when nominations were announced on Thursday. Donald Glover's Atlanta was nominated for 16 awards overall, including Outstanding Comedy Series.

The streaming service's maneuvering (and not incidentally, expensive Emmy campaigning) paid off with 112 nominations - a significant increase over past year, edging HBO's 108. Only one nominations category is all-white, and in three categories minority actors account for more than half the nominees.

The 2018 Emmys will be hosted by Saturday Night Live stars Colin Jost and Michael Che.

Korea approves rare screening of N. Korea films
Joint U.S. -North Korean military search teams recovered 229 sets of American remains from North Korea between 1996 and 2005. Guarded by North Korean soldiers, Byrd said they were careful to avoid arguments that could halt their work.

The fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year.

"Game of Thrones" will compete for best drama with last year's Emmy champion, Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", which also won nods for actresses Elisabeth Moss, Alexis Bledel, Samira Wiley, Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski.

Other best drama contenders include "The Crown", NBC's family drama "This Is Us", Cold War spy series "The Americans" on FX (FOXA.O) and "Westworld".

Rhys and Brown will be up against Brown's castmate Milo Ventimiglia, along with Jason Bateman for "Ozark" and Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright for "Westworld".

The GLOW series on Netflix earned an Emmy award nomination for outstanding comedy series.
