  • 39;Game of Thrones' earned a leading 22 nominations including best drama series

The 2018 Emmy nominations were revealed on Thursday morning, and while there were some pleasant surprises, along with some stale favorites (William H. Macy again?), there were also some very notable absences. It is worth noting that this is the first year that WWE was able to get their programming on the preliminary ballot.

Best known as a Tony Award-winning stage actor, Kelli O'Hara, an Elk City native, is nominated for best actress in a short-form comedy or drama series for "The Accidental Wolf", a thriller in which O'Hara plays Katie Bonner, a NY mother and wife who receives a desperate call from a stranger named Zuhair, pleading for her to save him and his pregnant wife.

The variety series category also left "The Tonight Show" on the sidelines for the second consecutive year, deservedly so, given that Jimmy Fallon's brand of vanilla-flavored latenight comedy feels a little too tepid for the times.

Netflix secured 112 nominations - more than any other network - while HBO received 108, according to the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

In addition, Hader is nominated for outstanding guest actor on a comedy series for returning to his old stomping grounds to host "Saturday Night Live".

The revival of "Roseanne, " canceled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet, drew only one major nomination, a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf. "We're grateful to all our nominees for making this the eighth year we've had 100 nominations or more".

If Legend wins, he'll join the rarified club of "EGOT" performers who've won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. Although it's up for top series honors, it drew only three supporting actor bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.

Moss was nominated for best actress in a drama series for The Handmaid's Tale, with Strahovski's nomination coming in the supporting actress category.

Rhys and Brown will be up against Brown's castmate Milo Ventimiglia, along with Jason Bateman for "Ozark" and Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright for "Westworld".
