Emmy nominations are out, and Saturday Night Live and Westworld are in the lead with 22 nods each, the AP reports. One of the nominations for HBO's Westworld was outstanding drama series, a category that also included AMC's Better Call Saul, Hulu's The Handmaid’s Tale, NBC's This Is Us, and Netflix's House of Cards, Stranger Things, and The Crown, Entertainment Weekly reports. (HBO's Game of Thrones, often a contender in that category, wasn't eligible this year due to the fact that it premieres Sunday, after the cutoff date for nominations.) Nominations for outstanding comedy series went to HBO's Veep and Silicon Valley, ABC's Modern Family and Black-ish, FX's Atlanta, and Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Master of None. Full list of nominees here. (More Emmy nomination stories.)
