Donald Glover and 'Atlanta' Score Big Emmy Nominations

2017 Emmy Nominees Best Looks

2017 Emmy Nominees Best Looks

Fans rejoiced when the FX series earned its first nomination for best drama series in 2016, but the Cold War tale as a whole was shut out this year.

There was also joy for Hulu (13 nominations) with The Handmaid's Tale, while Amazon Video's Transparent is also shortlisted for a number of Emmy's.

Stranger Things earned eighteen nominations, which is also pretty darn good by most standard.

MCEVERS: This year's nominations seem to feature a lot of actors who have already won Oscars.

Robert De Niro was nominated as outstanding lead actor in a limited series or movie for "The Wizard of Lies", topping a star-studded category that also includes Geoffrey Rush for NatGeo's "Genius", Ewan McGregor for "Fargo", Benedict Cumberbatch for "Sherlock: The Lying Detective" and Riz Ahmed and John Turturro for "The Night Of".

Coming in one notch below those shows, with 18 nominations each were FX's limited series Feud: Bette and Joan (including Directing and Title Design) and Netflix drama series Stranger Things (including Single-Camera Cinematography, Directing, Single-Camera Editing, Title Design, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing).

"Stranger Things" Season 2 is just around the corner and with its numerous Emmy nominations, viewers are getting more interested to see what's in store later this year.

DEGGANS: Well, "Game Of Thrones" started its latest season too late to be in contention for the nomination. So "Modern Family" and "House Of Cards", these are shows that kind of had their best year a while ago.

The Grammy victor is now nominated for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics alongside Kenan Thompson for his work on the song "Last Christmas" for a skit on Saturday Night Live.

HBO (which we count as a streamer, given its availability to cord cutters) is on the board with nominations for "Silicon Valley" and "Veep", which will go up against Netflix's "Master of None" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". Additionally, Tituss Burgess (The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) was nominated for supporting actor in a comedy series.

Carrie Coon got thrilling news on Thursday morning when she received her first-ever Emmy nomination. McKinnon won the award previous year.

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards airs Sunday, Sept. 17 at 8/7c on CBS.

I can not tell you happy I am to see "The Keepers" get an Emmy nomination as best documentary or nonfiction series.

Or maybe they'd already cast their votes (deadline: June 26) by the time Maher announced he couldn't work in the fields because "I'm a house n - r!"

The Tonight Show host was left off the ballot for variety talk series, although competitors Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Late Late Show With James Corden and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert made the cut, among others.
