Westworld tops the nominations for Emmys 2017

Westworld tops the nominations for Emmys 2017

"The Emmy Awards competition experienced a 15 percent increase in submissions for this year's initial nomination round of online voting".

Streaming services are also competing for best comedy this year.

"Saturday Night Live" was nominated for outstanding variety sketch series, along with truTV's "Billy on the Street", IFC's "Documentary Now!", Comedy Central's "Drunk History", IFC's "Portlandia" and HBO's "Tracey Ullman's Show".

The third place is occupied by HBO comedy series "Veep" has 17.

Colbert's The Late Show had been left out of the Best Variety Talk Show category a year ago, cementing a perception that the show was struggling.

Have you heard of a little HBO drama called Game of Thrones?

Netflix has three series among the seven on the list for Best Drama, an extraordinary showing.

Other success for Netflix include nominations for House of Cards, The Crown, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Masters of None. Previous nominees "Better Call Saul" (AMC) and "House of Cards" (Netflix) were joined by NBC's breakout "This Is Us"-the first best drama nominee from a broadcast network since 2011-plus "Westworld" and newcomers from Netflix, "The Crown" and "Stranger Things", which earned 13 and 18 nods, respectively".

Trump maintains 'nothing happened' when son met Russian
Peskov, the spokesman for President Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation , told reporters that the Kremlin had never heard of her. Trump told reporters Wednesday on Air Force One that he was not told the meeting was about obtaining dirt on Hillary Clinton .

The choices for best comedy series are FX's "Atlanta", ABC's "black-ish", Netflix's "Master of None" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", HBO's "Silicon Valley", ABC's five-time victor "Modern Family" and HBO's "Veep", which has won the past two years. FX's "Atlanta", plus ABC's "Black-ish" and "Modern Family" close out the category.

The choices for best dramatic actor include two hopefuls from "This Is Us": Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia. He'll compete in the Guest Actor in a Drama Series category against Denis O'Hare, who plays Jesse on the NBC drama This Is Us.

"Orphan Black" isn't in the running for the same reason, depriving star Tatiana Maslany of the chance to repeat as best-drama actress.

The Emmy nominations for the top television drama and comedy series have been announced. Who said being middle aged isn't fantastic?! Following close behind is the NBC's "This Is Us" with 11 nominations.

William H. Macy, star of Shameless, didn't seem to mind the Showtime drop.

We were already pretty stoked about This Is Us returning for Season 2 this fall, but now there's even more cause to celebrate. Fargo, meanwhile, had 16.

The Emmy Awards will be live on CBS, Sunday, September 17 at 8/7c. Stephen Colbert will serve as host. It's especially a shame that it was nominated since HBO's "Insecure" and ABC's "Fresh of the Boat" were shut out.

Carrie Coon got thrilling news on Thursday morning when she received her first-ever Emmy nomination.
