HBO's fantasy drama series, Game of Thrones, received the highest number of nominations at the 70th Emmy Awards, but Netflix became the most nominated television network this year, the Television Academy announced Thursday.
Game of Thrones led all television shows with nods in 22 categories, followed by HBO's sci-fi/western hit Westworld and NBC's long-running variety show Saturday Night Live receiving 21 nominations each.
In total, HBO got 108 nominations this year, but Netflix received 112 to lead all television networks.
This ended the 17-year streak of being the most nominated network for HBO.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has won eight Emmys for acting and three for producing, was not nominated this year -- a first since 2011.
After Louis-Dreyfus announced last September she was battling breast cancer, the final season of Veep was delayed for her treatment.
The 70th Emmy Awards ceremony will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sept. 17, and will be aired live on NBC.
