July 12 – This year’s Emmy Award nominations featured a number of firsts – the first streaming service to top the nominee list and the first person of Asian descent to get a lead actress to get a nod – and there’s even an opportunity for another EGOT winner.

It’s a meteoric rise for the streaming service, which just three years ago had 34 nominations.

“We are particularly enthused to see the breadth of our programming celebrated with nominations spread across 40 new and returning titles which showcase our varied and expansive slate – comedies, dramas, movies, limited series, documentary, variety, animation and reality,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer of Netflix.

HBO’s Game of Thrones led all shows with 22 nominations and its drama Westworld came in a close second with 21.

Sandra Oh became the first woman of Asian descent to earn a nod in the category for BBC America thriller Killing Eve.

She previously earned six nominations for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role in Grey’s Anatomy, but has yet to win an Emmy.

“I’m so proud of our Jesus Christ Superstar team! 13 Emmy nominations! We really had so much fun working on this together. So happy for everyone involved,” he said on Twitter about the show’s nominations.
