The 2017 Emmy Award nominations are in, and it's a big day for HBO, Netflix, FX and NBC. HBO scored the most-nominated program with Westworld, pulling in an impressive 22 nominations. On the Comedy side, HBO also has the win with Veep and its 17 nominations.

While HBO leads all networks with 110 nominations, Netflix came on strong with 91 total nominations thanks to big performances by Stranger Things and The Crown. FX broke through thanks to Atlanta and especially the limited series Feud: Bette and Joan, plus some surprising big nominations for Baskets and Better Things. And NBC has to be happy with a very strong showing for This Is Us (which got a total of seven acting nominations) and a slew of nominations for Saturday Night Live (including Alec Baldwin for playing Donald Trump).

The other big winner is The Handmaid's Tale. The show helped get Hulu into the Emmy race with nominations for Drama Series, Lead Actress for Elisabeth Moss and several other actresses.
