Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage Just Broke an Emmys Record!

Emmy Awards

The "This is Us" star, who plays mom Rebecca Pearson on the hit NBC tearjerker, wasn't among the names included in the "Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series" category.

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences could announce ten nominees in each category, and people would still be upset that this certain show or that certain performer got ignored.

Strahovski, who is pregnant and had to hide her baby bump during the filming of season 2, told Vulture of her nomination: "I can't stop smiling, my face hurts ..."

Other actresses competing for the Supporting Actress award include Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) and Thandie Newton (Westworld). He is also nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for "Saturday Night Live".

The streaming service's maneuvering (and not incidentally, expensive Emmy campaigning) paid off with 112 nominations - a significant increase over a year ago, edging HBO's 108. Netflix racked up 112 nods while HBO earned 108.

According to Variety, Netflix favorites like The Crown and Stranger Things are to thank for its success with this year's nominations.

"Game of Thrones" was out of the running in 2017 because the show aired later than usual.

"Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert" was also showered with praise, as was "The Handmaid's Tale's" supporting cast, coming off a just-concluded second season that gave them an opportunity to shine.

Still HBO has much to feel good about - "Game of Thrones", returning after a year off, led all shows with 22 nominations, followed by "Westworld" and "Saturday Night Live", each with 21.

Nicole Kidman missed out on an Emmy nomination for her performance in Top of the Lake: China Girl.

The Emmy awards will be handed out in Los Angeles on September 17 hosted by "Saturday Night Live" cast members Michael Che and Colin Jost.
