Emmy Nomination Scorecard: TV Series and Network

HBO continued its network dominance with 94 Emmy nominations on Thursday and a leading 23 nods for last year’s best drama winner “Game of Thrones.”

It’s the 16th straight year that HBO has led all networks in nominations, and the 25th consecutive year that it has led among cable networks (albeit a dip from last year, when it nabbed 126 nods).

But emerging players FX (56) and Netflix (54) made huge strides in 2016, chipping away at HBO’s 126 noms in 2015 (down 25%). FX’s “The People v O.J. Simpson” scored 22 nods, “Fargo” had 18 while Netflix’s “House of Cards” landed 13 mentions.
