It was a very strong freshman class, and all five shows are back this year.
"Game of Thrones", which sat out the awards previous year because it missed the eligibility window, received 22 nominations, the most of any series. NBC had 78 nods.
Another streamed series, Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", earned 20 nominations and a chance to defend its title as best drama series at the 70th Primetime Emmy ceremony airing September 17 on NBC.
"Thrones" made television history in 2016 to become the most decorated fictional show in the Emmys' seven-decade life span. Atlanta leads in comedy series nominations with 16, and RuPaul's Drag Race and The Voice each had 10 nominations to lead in the reality-competition category.
Wiley herself is nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress, and she's joined in her category by fellow Handmaid's guest stars Kelly Jenrette and Cherry Jones.
FX's true crime dramatization "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" led the limited series category with 18 nominations, including a best actor nod for Darren Criss who plays the killer of the gay Italian fashion designer.
Critics even said her performance on the show was "the only reason to watch season two".
The short-lived revival of "Roseanne", canceled because of star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet in May, drew only one major nomination: a supporting actress nod for Laurie Metcalf.
It was a deep year of nominations for minority performers, who accounted for over one-third of Thursday's acting nominees.
Second round voting takes place in August while the ceremony itself will be beamed live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sept 17 on NBC - hosted by "Saturday Night Live" duo Colin Jost and Michael Che.
