The 2018 Emmy Awards Nominations Are In!

The 70th Emmy Awards nominations have officially been announced, and while we definitely saw some of these coming (Game of Thrones for outstanding drama series, anyone?), we're still surprised at what did and didn't make the cut.

FX, HBO and Netflix led the pack this year, particularly in the outstanding series categories. Standout hits like Atlanta, This Is Us and Westworld also snagged several nominations each. 

Unlike previous years, the selection of nominees this year pulls from dozens of networks and streaming platforms representing performers from several marginalized groups in Hollywood. Sandra Oh's nomination in the lead female actor in a drama category for Killing Eve makes her the first Asian-American woman nominated in the category according to Time magazine. We are so here for the diversity in Hollywood being more widely represented at the Emmys this year.

Check out the partial list of nominees below. The winners will be announced during the live telecast on Monday, Sept. 17 at 8/7c from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. SNL's Colin Jost and Michael Che will cohost.
