But the Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke, was left behind in the accolades which were announced in Los Angeles.
Also missing out on a chance to take home an award was Grace & Frankie star Jane Fonda, while co-star Lily Tomlin was once again nominated.
Ouch! The Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke, was left behind and snubbed for a 2018 Emmy nomination
While Emilia has been nominated for an Emmy Award three times, she has yet to win one of the coveted titles.
Sophie Turner and Kit Harrington were also both left out of leading actor nominations for the fan-favorite show.
Fonda’s last Emmy win was in 1984 for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie, The Dollmaker. She’s since been nominated for her work on A century of Women and The Newsroom, and was also nominated alongside Tomlin in 2017.
Television’s favorite brood, Modern Family, missed out on the chance of recognition for the first time in its nearly decade on screens.
Not this year: Also missing out on a chance to take home an award was Grace & Frankie star Jane Fonda, while co-star Lily Tomlin was once again nominated
Oh no! Television’s favorite brood, Modern Family, missed out on the chance of recognition for the first time in its nearly decade on screens; seen in 2014
Alison Brie was overlooked for her role on Netflix’s GLOW, but co-star Betty Gilpin nabbed a nod.
While Roseanne’s show did end up with two nominations – Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy for Laurie Metcalf and a nod for outstanding multi-camera editing – the matriarch missed out on her own recognition.
The Television Academy failed to give noms to both Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show and Late Night with Seth Meyers.
Mandy Moore was not recognized for her work on This Is Us, but co-stars Sterling K. Brown and Mile Ventimiglia both received nods.
Despite receiving years of nominations, Orange Is The New Black failed for any recognition in this year’s categories.
Fighter: Alison Brie was overlooked for her role on Netflix’s GLOW, but co-star Betty Gilpin nabbed a nod
Sad: Mandy Moore was not recognized for her work on This Is Us, but co-stars Sterling K. Brown and Mile Ventimiglia both received nods
Game of Thrones impressive 22 nominations included Best Drama Series, putting it just ahead of Saturday Night Live and Westworld, which both landed 21 nominations.
And Samantha Bee’s Full Frontal series and the show’s special to benefit aid efforts in Puerto Rico earned seven nominations, with Bee up for five of those awards.
She picked up her first Emmy last year for her work on the writing staff of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee Presents Not The White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Netflix ruled the day with 112 nominations, including Best Comedy Series nods for Glow and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt as well as two Best Drama Series nods for The Crown and Stranger Things 2.
Maybe next time: Despite receiving years of nominations, Orange Is The New Black failed for any recognition in this year’s categories
Not surprised: While Roseanne’s show did end up with two nominations – Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy for Laurie Metcalf and a nod for outstanding multi-camera editing – the matriarch missed out on her own recognition.
HBO, who trailed with 108 nominations, landed three of the eight Best Comedy Series spots thanks to Barry, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Silicon Valley.
That was no doubt a welcome relief for HBO as their critically adored comedy series Veep, which won the category in 2017 for the third straight time, was not eligible this year.
There will also be a new Best Actress winner in the comedy category come September for the first time in seven years, with Julia Louis Dreyfus having taken home the honor every year since Veep premiered back in 2011.
The six woman who made the cut in that category were: Pamela Aldon (Better Things), Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Allison Janney (Mom), Issa Rae (Insecure), Tracee Ellis Ross (blackish) and Lily Tomlin (Grace & Frankie).
Bee best: Samantha Bee’s show Full Frontal and her special to aid relief efforts in Puerto Rico yielded the host five nominations
That was shockingly the only nomination for Aldon and her series Better Things, which most critics agreed was one of if not the best series on television last year.
Atlanta was the big winner on her comedy side, leading the pack with 16 nominations, including Best Comedy Series.
Donald Glover, who picked up awards for Best Actor and Best Directing in a Comedy Series at the 2017 ceremony, is up for four more awards this year – Best Actor, Director, Writing and Guest Actor in a Comedy Series.
That fourth nod is for his appearance on Saturday Night Live.
Glover faces off against Bill Hader (Barry) and veterans Ted Danson (The Good Place), Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Anthony Anderson ( and William H. Macy in the Best Actor category.
BaldWIN: Alec is back in the Best Supporting Actor race on the comdy side for his worj playing Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live
The Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series winner from 2017 is back in the race, with Alec Baldwin scoring his second straight nomination for his portrayal of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live.
The Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series winner from 2017 hailed from that very same show, and again Kate McKinnon will be up for an Emmy alongside cast mates Aidy Bryant and Leslie Jones.
Those three woman will face off with three women who are new to the category – Betty Gilpin (Glow), Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) and Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel).
That category is rounded out by three-time winner Metcalf and two-time winner Megan Mullally of Will & Grace.
Both of those women are nominated for their work playing the same characters for which they won those Emmys.
