Hayma Washington said of this year's crop of nominations:

"It's been a record-breaking year for television, continuing its explosive growth. The Emmy Awards competition experienced a 15 percent increase in submissions for this year's initial nomination round of online voting. The creativity and excellence in presenting great storytelling and characters across a multitude of ever-expanding entertainment platforms is staggering. This sweeping array of television shows ranges from familiar favorites like blackish and House of Cards to nominations newcomers like Westworld, This Is Us and Atlanta. The power of television and its talented performers, in front of and behind the camera, enthrall a worldwide audience. We are thrilled to once again honor the very best that television has to offer."
