There are so many great TV shows right now that it's hard to even keep track of it all. The second season of Atlanta was somehow even better than the first, The Americans was basically The Sopranos of this decade, and Barry is low-key the best thing Bill Hader and Henry Winkler have ever been a part of. Oh, also there was Killing Eve. And The Expanse. And Legion. And on and on and on. But somehow, amid this glut of great television, the noble Emmy voters have ingested all the TV content into their brilliant minds and decided which shows deserve to stand out as the best of the best.

On Thursday morning, the 2018 Primetime Emmy nominations were announced, and for the first time, Netflix picked up the most noms out of any network, nabbing a total of 112 nominations and beating out HBO's 108 and NBC's 78. But it's HBO's Game of Thrones that managed to secure the most nominations for any individual series, with 22 separate nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, two Supporting Actor in a Drama Series nominations for Peter Dinklage and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Lena Headey for Supporting Actress in a Drama. Meanwhile, David Lynch's bizarre but periodically transcendent Twin Peaks revival didn't get nominated for jack shit—probably the most glaring snub this year.

The Emmys will announce winners during the 70th award ceremony on September 17, when the Emmy overlords will officially tell us cultureless plebes which TV shows was actually truly superior. Until then, here's a rundown of the nominees.
