The 70th Primetime Emmy Award nominations were announced July 12.

After 18 years of leading the pack with the most nominations, HBO —which received 108 — was unseated by Netflix with its 112 nominations. Among those 112 nominations include one for the “Queer Eye” reboot for Best Structured Reality Program, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s” Tituss Burgess for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and “Grace and Frankie’s” Lily Tomlin for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

Ryan Murphy-run shows “American Horror Story” and “American Crime Story” recieved nine nominations; two for “AHS: Cult” (including Sarah Paulson for Best Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie) and seven for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” including Best Limited Series and a nomination for Ricky Martin in the Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie category.

Kate McKinnon — who has been nominated as Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series the last four years, winning the last two — is up again for her performance on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

NBC’s revival of the groundbreaking LGBTQ series “Will & Grace” managed only two nominations — one in the Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category for Megan Mullally and one in Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for Molly Shannon.

RuPaul had a big morning with his name being attached to three categories. “RuPaul’s Drag Race” received a nomination for Best Reality Competition, “RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked” received a nomination for Best Unstructured Reality Program and RuPaul himself was nominated for Best Host for Reality/Reality Competition Program, qhich turned out to be the gayest category of this year’s Emmys with four of the five nominations going to LGBTQ hosts.

RuPaul will be competing against Jane Lynch for “Hollywood Game Night,” Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn for “Project Runway,” Ellen DeGeneres for “Ellen’s Game of Games” and W. Kamau Bell for “United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell.”

The 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards — hosted at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles by “Saturday Night Live’s” Colin Jost and Michael Che — airs live Monday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
