As it does each year, the 2018 Emmys nominations feature some big names, some surprises and some that you saw coming from a mile away *cough Game Of Thrones cough*.

This year, Australian actress and star of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, Yvonne Strzechowski, has scored her first Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series category. 

The Sydney-born actress will go up against the likes of Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Thandie Newton (Westworld) and Lena Headey (Game Of Thrones).

Meanwhile, taking a break from his domination in the music scene, Donald Glover has picked up a number of nominations for the second season of his FX series, Atlanta.

The show picked up nine nominations in total, including Glover's nod for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing For A Comedy Series ('Alligator Man'), Outstanding Directing For A Comedy Series ('FUBU'), as well as Outstanding Comedy Series.

The US actor will be going for the Lead Actor In A Comedy Series gong for the second year running, while he also scored a nomination for his recent hosting gig on Saturday Night Live.

HBO documentary, The Defiant Ones, which looked at the careers and partnership of Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine, also picked up five nominations, including Outstanding Documentary Series.

Unsurprisingly, Game Of Thrones again leads the nominations this year with 22, followed by Saturday Night Live and Westworld with 21 each.

Leading the nominations in totals by platform are Netflix (112), HBO (108) and NBC (78).

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will take place in LA on 17 September and hosted by Saturday Night Live stars, Colin Jost and Michael Che.
