With his seventh nom, Dinklage became the most nominated person ever in the category.
The nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmys held a clear sign of how much the ground is shifting under the TV industry: streaming service Netflix captured the most nominations overall, 112, taking away a title that HBO held since 2001 and giving broadcast TV more reason to fear its future in awards and viewers.
Netflix's investment in original programming has mirrored the strategy that has made HBO so consistently dominant, offering a wide variety of programming - from series like "The Crown" and "Stranger Things" to specials, from documentaries to unscripted fare. Trailing were broadcaster NBC with 78 nominees and cable network FX with 50. She earned a nomination herself for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series a year ago.
The streamer's historical limited series, "The Looming Tower", on the other hand, picked up four nominations, including Jeff Daniels for lead actor in a limited series or movie, casting, directing (Craig Zisk), and supporting actor in a limited series or movie (Michael Stuhlbarg).
Trump's pick Kavanaugh faces tough road to confirmation
Should Kavanaugh (53) be confirmed, he and Justice Gorsuch, the other Trump nominee, could both potentially serve for 30-35 years. In 2016, Kavanaugh ruled in favor of a division of Verizon, which had ordered employees to stop displaying pro-union signs.
The return of "Thrones" did tighten the race up on the drama side, but the absence of "Veep" from contention this year didn't seem to do much to help on the comedy side.
The Emmys have also again exhibited significant diversity in terms of the makeup of its performer nominees, at a time when its chief peer, the Oscars, have struggled to be as inclusive.
Glover previously won Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series at the 2017 Emmy Awards.
