HBO led Thursday’s Emmy Awards news with 110 nominations, but Netflix is on its heels. The streaming service received 91 nominations this year, a significant gain from its 54 nominations last year.

With 22 nominations each, NBC’s “SNL” and HBO’s “Westworld” tied for most nominations among a program. Netflix’s “Stranger Things” and FX’s “Feud: Bette and Joan” tied for second place, with 18 nods apiece.

The outstanding drama series category includes five first-time nominees—“The Crown,” “Stranger Things,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “This is Us” and “Westworld.” They join AMC’s “Better Call Saul” and Netflix’s “House of Cards.” The only first-time comedy nominee is FX’s “Atlanta,” which is competing with “Blackish,” “Master of None,” “Modern Family,” “Silicon Valley,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Veep” for the win.

Cable dominated the outstanding limited series category. HBO’s “Big Little Lies” is up against “Feud: Bette and Joan,” FX’s “Fargo,” HBO’s “The Night Of” and new Nat Geo offering “Genius.”
