Watch the 2018 Emmy Awards nominations live

Record-breaking fantasy epic "Game of Thrones" made a storming comeback Thursday to Hollywood's awards circuit after a year off, dominating this year's Emmy nominations with a whopping 22 nods. Its fellow HBO drama Westworld had 21 nominations this year, as did Saturday Night Live. That's up from a quarter of the field previous year, when Brown ("This Is Us") and Glover ("Atlanta") won top acting awards.

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. Keep reading to find out all the lucky stars who were nominated for the 2018 Emmys.

Sandra Oh, 46 and a perennial Outstanding Supporting Actress Emmy nominee during her time on Grey's Anatomy, picked up a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her work on the BBC America murder mystery series Killing Eve, which makes her the first Asian actress to ever be nominated in any Lead Actress Emmy category.

"I share this moment with my community", Oh said in a statement. "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied".

Sterling K. Brown and Donald Glover aren't such Emmy outliers this year.

Only one of this year's categories, supporting actor in a drama, lacked any performers of color.

The Emmys ceremony airs September 17 on NBC with Colin Jost and Michael Che of "Saturday Night Live" as hosts. If he wins, he will earn the coveted EGOT, having previously won a Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.

HBO's fantasy dragons-and-swords saga is a two-time best drama victor that sat out the last year's Emmys because of its production schedule.

"The Handmaid's Tale" contributed to 27 nominations for Hulu, while "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" helped Amazon collect 22.

But it was "Thrones" that set the Emmys pace with its seventh season, which aired last summer, earning recognition for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage and Diana Rigg.

While there was a major turnover in the best comedy series category this year, helped by the absence of three-time victor Veep and also involving the snub of five-time victor Modern Family, an even bigger seismic shift happened last year in the best drama series field.

Glover and Anderson's competitors for best comedy series actor are Ted Danson for "The Good Place", Larry David for "Curb Your Enthusiasm", William H. Macy for "Shameless" and Bill Hader for "Barry".
