  • Emmys 2018 Five races we'll be watching when nominations are announced

TV stars are undoubtedly on edge this morning as they wait to hear who will be honored with a nomination for the 2018 Emmy Awards.

Markle's name was submitted for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series" for her role as Rachel Zane on "Suits", but the newly-minted royal wasn't nominated. HBO still managed to earn 108 nominations for shows like Thrones and Westworld, but Netflix's collective might at producing increasingly good original content resulted in a massive 112 total nominations. "Atlanta" will face newcomers including "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, " "Glow" and "Barry". Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" comes in second with 20 nominations.

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" was the top comedy nominee with 16 bids, poised to take advantage of this year's absence of three-time victor "Veep".

Serena beats Giorgi in three sets, makes Wimbledon semis
If her best is anything like we saw Tuesday, it seems like it will be an incredibly hard task for Goerges to pull off the victory. Williams hasn't faced a seeded player yet, and she won't on Tuesday, either, instead facing 52nd-ranked Camila Giorgi of Italy.

The Emmy nominations are in and HBO's "Game of Thrones" leads the pack with 22 nominations.

Killing Eve star Sandra Oh made history of her own, becoming the first actress of Asian descent to be nominated for lead acting honours in a drama series.

The fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year.

For lead actor drama, the Television Academy nominated Jason Bateman, "Ozark"; Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright, "Westworld"; Matthew Rhys, "The Americans"; and Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia of "This is Us".
