Emmy nominations were announced Thursday morning and highlight some of the best shows on TV.

As well as picking up nominations in many technical categories, Game of Thrones' acting talents have also been acknowledged with Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, shortlisted for Supporting Actress in a Drama Serious. If Dinklage wins, he'll tie Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) for the most wins in the Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category.

Streaming service Netflix steals front-runner title from HBO with whopping 112 Emmy nominations. And even some shows that did very well in overall nominations, like HBO's "Game of Thrones", saw some notable stars absent from the final tallies.

Since the first season of Game of Thrones, Dinklage has received a nomination for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series every year the show was eligible, and this year is no different. "Atlanta" will face newcomers including "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, " "Glow" and "Barry".

Following HBO and Netflix is the most traditional network of them all, NBC, which has a total of 78 nominations including 21 just for this season of Saturday Night Live and four for the night Donald Glover hosted.

The short-lived revival of "Roseanne", canceled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet in May, drew only one major nomination: a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf.

For lead actor drama, the Television Academy nominated Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright, "Westworld"; Matthew Rhys, "The Americans"; and Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia of "This is Us".
