Donald Glover, John Legend, & Bruno Mars Score Emmy Nominations

Game of Thrones is the show leading the way in this year's Emmy awards race, with 22 nominations. Game of Thrones "helped boost the premium cable service's total and became the most-nominated series of all time, with its 129 nods topping the 124 nominations earned by ER". Its nods included best drama, the category it won in 2015 and 2016.

For the first year, Netflix have beaten HBO as the network with the most overall nods, with the streaming giant's productions - which include The Crown, Ozark and Stranger Things - earning it 112 nominations across the board, four more than HBO.

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

Hulu scored 27 nominations from the Television Academy for the 70th annual primetime television awards, up from 18 previous year, with 20 of those nominations for "The Handmaid's Tale".

Luis Enrique appointed Spain coach
Former Real Madrid player Luis Enrique has been named new Spain's La Roja boss. Enrique has been out of management since leaving the Nou Camp last June.

On the comedy side, "Veep" and its star are on an extended hiatus, so this category is wide open for "Atlanta", "Barry", "black-ish", "Curb Your Enthusiasm, "GLOW", "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", "Silicon Valley" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".

The streaming service's maneuvering (and not incidentally, expensive Emmy campaigning) paid off with 112 nominations - a significant increase over a year ago, edging HBO's 108.

One show that stars a pair of local natives and has been nominated in the past was shut out in every major category. He is also nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for "Saturday Night Live".

Lead actress in a drama series: Claire Foy (The Crown); Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black); Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale); Sandra Oh (Killing Eve); Keri Russell (The Americans) and Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld).
