The 2018 Primetime Emmy nominations will be announced Thursday, July 12 at 11:30 a.m. ET from the Television Academy's Saban Media Center in Los Angeles by The Handmaid's Tale's Samira Wiley and New Amsterdam's Ryan Eggold. And some didn't get the nominations they deserved, like NBC's "The Good Place" and HBO's "Insecure".

For the first year, Netflix have beaten HBO as the network with the most overall nods, with the streaming giant's productions - which include The Crown, Ozark and Stranger Things - earning it 112 nominations across the board, four more than HBO.

Game of Thrones makes its Emmy comeback this year after last year's later season airdate saw it ineligible for consideration for the awards. Saturday Night Live and Westworld both grabbed 21 nominations each, while The Handmaid's Tale secured 20 nominations.

Game of Thrones garnered a whopping 22 nominations - the most for any series this year.
