"The Handmaid's Tale", the dystopian sci-fi series based on Margaret Atwood's novel, drew 20 bids, including one for last year's best actress victor, Elisabeth Moss, and supporting bids for Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Yvonne Strahovski and Joseph Fiennes. It has 22 nominations, followed by Saturday Night Live and Westworld with 21 each.

The Handmaid's Tale came away with 20 nominations all up. Their respective producing nominations for Best Comedy Series are still pending - the TV academy vets all producers and announces the nominees at a later date - but as the creators and auteurs of their shows, they are definitely in.

Markle's name was submitted for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series" for her role as Rachel Zane on "Suits", but the newly-minted royal wasn't nominated.

She will be competing for the Emmy against two The Handmaid's Tale co-stars, Alexis Bledel and Ann Dowd, as well as Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Thandie Newton (Westworld) and Vanessa Kirby (The Crown).

English fans erupt at that Kieran Tripper goal
Tickets to watch England play their World Cup semi-final against Croatia at Peterborough's World Cup street party are running out. "We've all grown up watching England and to represent your country at a semi-final of a World Cup , there's no better feeling".

The streaming service's maneuvering (and not incidentally, expensive Emmy campaigning) paid off with 112 nominations - a significant increase over previous year, edging HBO's 108. Adrift in third was NBC with 78 nods.

It's also worthy of note that Donald Glover, who is up for lead actor in a comedy, landed 16 nominations for Atlanta, including outstanding comedy alongside Barry, Black-ish, Curb Your Enthusiasm, GLOW, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Silicon Valley, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It wasn't until 2013 that Netflix won a single award for House of Cards, the first original online-only web television series to receive major nominations for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards and now, just five years later, Netflix has more awards than any other content maker.

Saturday Night Live's Michael Che and Colin Jost will co-host 70th Emmy Awards, airing live on Monday, Sept. 17, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
