And during Thursday's 2018 Emmy nominations announcement, it was revealed that it's been nominated for 22 more, including Best Drama Series, Best Directing for a Drama Series and Best Writing for a Drama Series. HBO still managed to earn 108 nominations for shows like Thrones and Westworld, but Netflix's collective might at producing increasingly good original content resulted in a massive 112 total nominations.

Dinklage missed out on a nomination a year ago due to Game of Thrones' late premiere date, which disqualified the series from the 2017 competition.

For the most part, though, this year's categories mark a pretty fair representation of TV's best and brightest, while adding drama to the battle that's been brewing to its two foremost bidders for awards prestige.

For lead actor drama, the Television Academy nominated Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright, "Westworld"; Matthew Rhys, "The Americans"; and Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia of "This is Us". He is also nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for "Saturday Night Live".

Comedy series: Atlanta; Barry; Black-ish; Curb Your Enthusiasm; GLOW; The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; Silicon Valley; and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards are scheduled to air on NBC September 17.
