July 29, 2020 15:45,

Without “Game of Thrones,” HBO fell behind Netflix for the second time in the last three years in the overall Emmy nomination count as the streaming service dominated the Emmy nominee count on Tuesday with 160 nominations, setting a new record for the most nominations for a single network or streaming platform.
Netflix’s 160 moms shattered HBO’s record from 2019, when the pay-cable network earned 137 nominations. This year, HBO came in a more distant second with 107 nods. Last year, “Game of Thrones” alone scored a record 32 nominations for the network.
HBO still had the most-nominated show in “Watchmen,” which garnered 26 nods. That was followed by “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (20), “Ozark” (18), “Succession” (18), “The Mandalorian” (15), “Schitt’s Creek” (15), “Saturday Night Live” (15) and “The Crown” (13). Along With “Ozark” and “The Crown,” Netflix was led by Ryan Murphy’s “Hollywood” (9), “Stranger Things” (8) and “Unorthodox” (8). Two reality series, “Queer Eye” and “Cheer,” each garnered seven and six nods, respectively for the streamer as well.
NBC was again the most-nominated broadcast network with 47 nods. ABC (36) and FX Networks (33) rounded out the top five. Three new streaming services — Disney+, Apple TV+ and Quibi — combined for 47 nominations, led by Disney+ with 19. The Disney-owned streaming service was led by “The Mandalorian,” which bagged 15 nods including Outstanding Drama Series. Apple TV+ drew 18 nominations including eight for “The Morning Show.” Both Steve Carell and Jennifer Aniston were nominated in their respective categories.
Quibi managed to score 10 nominations, all in the short-form categories.
