While the show didn't retain its former awards nomination glory this year, streaming giant Netflix, which distributes "Orange Is the New Black", earned the most nominations of any channel or platform with 112, narrowly beating HBO's 108. She earned a nomination herself for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series past year.

For the most part, though, this year's categories mark a pretty fair representation of TV's best and brightest, while adding drama to the battle that's been brewing to its two foremost bidders for awards prestige.

The USA Network legal drama, whose eighth season will premiere later this month, has yet to receive any Emmy nods. And even some shows that did very well in overall nominations, like HBO's "Game of Thrones", saw some notable stars absent from the final tallies.

Others in the category include black-ish, Silicon Valley, 'Curb Your Enthusiasm and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.


Some of music's biggest names including Donald Glover, John Legend, and Bruno Mars are among the nominees for the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

For lead actor drama, the Television Academy nominated Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright, "Westworld"; Matthew Rhys, "The Americans"; and Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia of "This is Us". If he wins, he will earn the coveted EGOT, having previously won a Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. Saturday Night Live's Colin Jost and Michael Che will host the ceremony.

Sarah Paulson is nominated on the female side for her role in "American Horror Story: Cult", Ryan Murphy's twisted take on our political divide.
