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.

"We congratulate our creative partners on their unprecedented success today, garnering Netflix a leading 112 nominations", said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. Adrift in third was NBC with 78 nods. She wasn't nominated for an Emmy in 2017, either. Medfield's Uzo Aduba has been nominated for Supporting Actress for "Orange Is the New Black" three times (winning twice, in 2014 and 2015), while Wayland and West Roxbury's Taylor Schilling was nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2014.

Comedy show Saturday Night Live, which has been enjoying high ratings due to its focus on the Trump administration, was rewarded with 21 nominations.
