The nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmys held a clear sign of how much the ground is shifting under the TV industry: streaming service Netflix captured the most nominations overall, 112, taking away a title that HBO held since 2001 and giving broadcast TV more reason to fear its future in awards and viewers. HBO is no piker: It claimed 108 bids.

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" was the top comedy nominee with 16 bids, poised to take advantage of this year's absence of three-time victor "Veep". Others in the category include "black'ish", "Silicon Valley", "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".

The previous high for "Game of Thrones" was 24 nominations in 2015.

"Game of Thrones", which sat out the awards previous year because it missed the eligibility window, received 22 nominations, the most of any series.

All three Lannister siblings were also recognized, with Lena Headey earning her fourth Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role as Cersei while her on-screen brothers Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) picked up Best Supporting Actor nods.

HBO awards darling "Veep" was ineligible this year and its crown passed to "Atlanta", the FX comedy created by and starring Donald Glover, which amassed 16 nods. The Creative Arts Awards this year are September 8-9, with the Primetime Emmy Awards set for Monday, September 17 at 8 AM ET/5 PM PT at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
