Westworld, Saturday Night Live lead 2017 Emmy nominations

HBO's sci-fi western Westworld and NBC's Trump-bashing Saturday Night Live tied for the most 2017 Emmy nominations, earning 22 each. Netflix's Stranger Things followed up with 18 total nominations and will compete against Westworld, This Is Us, House of Cards, The Handmaid's Tale, The Crown, and Better Call Saul in the drama series category.

Atlanta, Black-ish, Master of None, Modern Family, Silicon Valley, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Veep will vie for the title of best comedy series. HBO's Game of Thrones, which earned the most total nominations last year, isn't eligible this round due to its July premiere date.

Stephen Colbert will host the awards on Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Read Lili Loofbourow's recap of the Westworld finale here at The Week, watch Melissa McCarthy portray White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on SNL here, or see the full list of nominees at Variety.
