Game of Thrones leads the nominations at this year's Emmy Awards, after being ineligible in 2017.

The HBO series has 22 nominations in total, followed by sci-fi series Westworld and comedy show Saturday Night Live, both with 21.

It is the first time in 18 years that HBO did not have the highest number of Emmy nominations.

Netflix leads with a total of 112 nominations, beating HBO, which received 108.

In 2017, The Handmaid's Tale became the first show from a streaming platform to receive the award for best drama.

This year several actresses from the dystopian drama have received nominations, including Elisabeth Moss and Alexis Bledel.

Several British actors have received nominations for the awards also.

Millie Bobby Brown is up for the best supporting actress award for her performance in Netflix's Stranger Things.
