HBO managed to dominate nominations inspite of the absence of Game of Thrones, using its robot drama tying with Sunday Night Live for most nods
HBO kept its place at the top of the particular Emmy nominations tree with its automatic robot western series Westworld bagging twenty two nominations at this years event, which usually saw it tie with the humor show Saturday Night Reside for the most nods.
The particular haul amounted to one fewer candidate selection than HBOs usual Emmy juggernaut Game of Thrones managed last year , and was obviously a shock to some observers who expected a more modest showing from a collection that had a mixed reception on its release.
The show will fight it out for the top honour, excellent drama series, alongside Better Contact Saul, House of Cards, Unfamiliar person Things, The Crown, The Handmaids Tale and This Is Us. Homeland and The Americans missed out.
Westworld also had a good displaying in the acting categories, with Friend Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood nominated for best lead stars and Thandie Newton and Jeffrey Wright recognised in the supporting acting professional categories.
Saturday Night Live also obtained 22 nominations, including a jerk for Alec Baldwin and his impact of Donald Trump, while Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Vanessa Bayer, were all recognised within the best supporting actress in a humor series category.
