stranger things season 2 teaser

Netflix has been nominated for a whopping 18 Emmy Awards, which is more than any other streaming service.

The 18 nominations cover the main categories, but including the more minor ones, Netflix is up for a ridiculous 91 awards.

Aziz Ansari was nominated as lead actor in a comedy for his role in 'Master of None', while Robin Wright ('House of Cards') and Clair Foy ('The Crown') were nommed for lead actress in a drama series. Wright's co-star Kevin Spacey was nominated for his role in the political thriller, while Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda ('Grace and Frankie') and Ellie Kemper ('Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt') were put forward for lead actress in a comedy series.

Supporting actor in a drama series nominations are David Harbour ('Stranger Things'), Michael Kelly ('House of Cards') and John Lithgow ('The Crown'), while supporting actress noms go to Uzo Aduba ('Orange is the New Black') and Millie Bobby Brown ('Stranger Things'). Tituss Burgess (of 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' and some recent laundry adverts) is up for supporting actor in a comedy series.

In terms of the shows themselves, 'Master of None' and 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' were nommed for outstanding comedy series, and 'Stranger Things', 'The Crown' and 'House of Cards' in the drama category.

Amazon picked up three nominations, all for 'Transparent'. Hulu also has three, all for 'The Handmaid's Tale' (which is currently airing on Channel 4).

The Emmys take place on 17th September. Let's see if Netflix can make good on these nominations and bring home some awards.
