Netflix also showed its dominance over the traditional free-to-air and cable TV networks.

One show that stars a pair of local natives and has been nominated in the past was shut out in every major category.

"Saturday Night Live, " riding high in the ratings with its relentless pillorying of the Trump administration, was rewarded with 21 nods.

HBO awards darling Veep was ineligible this year and its crown passed to Atlanta, the FX comedy created by and starring Donald Glover, which amassed 16 nods. "Atlanta" will face newcomers including "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", "GLOW" and "Barry".

The newbie comedies aced out long-time Emmy favorite "Modern Family", a five-time victor and perennial nominee since it debuted in 2009 on ABC.

Best known as a Tony Award-winning stage actor, Kelli O'Hara, an Elk City native, is nominated for best actress in a short-form comedy or drama series for "The Accidental Wolf", a thriller in which O'Hara plays Katie Bonner, a NY mother and wife who receives a desperate call from a stranger named Zuhair, pleading for her to save him and his pregnant wife. She added a postscript: "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied".

The Emmys ceremony airs September 17 on NBC with Colin Jost and Michael Che of "Saturday Night Live" as hosts.

The fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year. Although it's up for top series honors, it drew only three supporting acting bids for cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage.

Its nods included best drama, the category it won in 2015 and 2016.

Lead actress in a drama series: Claire Foy (The Crown); Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black); Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale); Sandra Oh (Killing Eve); Keri Russell (The Americans) and Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld). Brown is also nominated for comedy series guest actor for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine".
