This image released by BBC America shows Sandra Oh in a scene from "Killing Eve".

The news was not so good for Nicole Kidman, who was snubbed for her performance in Top of the Lake: China Girl, and Naomi Watts - for roles in Twin Peaks and Gypsy - when nominations were announced on Thursday.

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards will kick off on Sunday, Sept. 17, at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles. The streamer led the nominations with 112, while HBO scored 108. Its fellow HBO drama Westworld had 21 nominations this year, as did Saturday Night Live. And HBO's "Barry" made a significant mark on the comedy voting, where Donald Glover's "Atlanta" led the way, in a field thrown wide open by the absence of three-time champ "Veep" from this year's list of contenders.

Glover lands four nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for his work in FX's "Atlanta", which is this year's most-nominated comedy series with 16 nominations. Others in the category include "black-ish", "Silicon Valley", "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".

Several major stars not normally associated with television got their first Emmy nominations in 2018. Brown is also nominated for comedy series guest actor for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine".

"Being a kid from Compton, one could only dream of moments like this, so it's truly a humbling experience right now", Anderson said. Oh had earned five supporting bids for "Grey's Anatomy". "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied".

"I think we're all happy with the direction we're going".

It was a deep year of nominations for minority performers, who accounted for over one-third of Thursday's acting nominees.

"Games of Thrones", a worldwide hit, got 22 nods, including for the top prize of best drama series.

The Handmaid's Tale was one of the big winners with 20 nominations overall.

The fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year.
