Netflix has just become the top Emmy-nominated network

The Emmy nominations are in and HBO's "Game of Thrones" leads the pack with 22 nominations.

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".

But not all of the Seven Kingdoms' key players made the Emmys cut.

Showtime's "Twin Peaks" revival didn't make the cut - producing bellyaching from its critical admirers - and while TNT's "The Alienist" and National Geographic Channel's second installment of "Genius", about Pablo Picasso, look like long shots against those heavyweights, they reflect the rising ambition exhibited by other networks in their bid to make a mark with scripted programming.

"Game of Thrones", which sat out the awards a year ago because it missed the eligibility window, received 22 nominations, the most of any series.

EW reports that in a first, the duo were entered for consideration as lead actors rather than supporting ones. Lena Headey, who plays their sister Cersei Lannister, also earned a nomination for supporting actress in a drama series. She wasn't nominated for an Emmy in 2017, either.

One show that stars a pair of local natives and has been nominated in the past was shut out in every major category.

Megan Mullally and Molly Shannon are up for "Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series" and "Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series" - but the main stars and series itself were snubbed.

The Hulu series, which is set in a dystopian MA, earned 20 nominations, including a repeat nomination for the victor of last year's Supporting Actress in a Drama Series award, Holyoke native Ann Dowd.
