Leading the nominations in totals by platform were Netflix (112), leapfrogging last year's leader HBO, which scored 108.

Best known for her role on Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black", Wiley is now starring on Hulu's critically acclaimed, Emmy-winning dystopian drama "The Handmaid's Tale".

Additionally, Netflix also made gains in the reality space with the Queer Eye revival, which landed multiple noms, including best Structured Reality TV series 14 years after winning a Best Reality Show Emmy.

"GLOW" star Alison Brie wasn't nominated for her work on the Netflix series, in which she plays a struggling actress who joins a TV show focusing on women's wrestling.

There was no broadcast presence in three series acting categories - lead and supporting actress in a drama and supporting actor in a drama.

China trade battle kicks off; markets take it in stride
In June, China said it would put 25% tariffs on United States goods, including pork, soybeans, rice and corn, on 6 July. European pork will gain some ground over the USA , which shipped nearly $500 million worth of pork to China past year .

"Game of Thrones", "Saturday Night Live", "Westworld" and "The Handmaid's Tale" collected the most Emmy Award nominations on Thursday morning.

EW reports that in a first, the duo were entered for consideration as lead actors rather than supporting ones. "We are particularly enthused to see the breadth of our programming celebrated with nominations spread across 40 new and returning titles which showcase our varied and expansive slate - comedies, dramas, movies, limited series, documentary, variety, animation and reality".

The USA Network legal drama, whose eighth season will premiere later this month, has yet to receive any Emmy nods. Its nods included best drama, the category it won in 2015 and 2016. It's a steep fall-off from there, although 13 networks or services garnered 10 or more nominations, reflecting the breadth of competition that now characterizes the Emmy race in the age of "peak TV".

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.
