Game of Thrones Helps HBO Edge Out Netflix With 137 Emmy Nominations

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Chernobyl and When They See Us among the top nominees

It’s Emmy nomination season, and HBO can once again call itself the most-nominated network on television.

The cable network, which last year was briefly unseated by Netflix as the most-nominated network or platform, ending a 17-year Emmys streak, has once again come out on top in 2019, pulling ahead of Netflix with 137 nominations (29 more than last year) compared to the streaming service’s 117.

HBO was buoyed by its tremendously popular fantasy drama Game of Thrones, which this year received 32 nominations for its final season, making it the most-nominated series of 2019 and setting a new record for nominations received by a drama series in a single year.
