Four of the five drama series nominated last year return for nominations this year, with newcomer, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale joining last year’s winner, Netflix’s The Crown as well as HBO’s Game of Thrones, Netflix’s Stranger Things and NBC’s This Is Us.

In the best comedy series, ABC’s Black-ish returns to battle newcomers The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon), Master of None (Netflix), SMILF (Showtime) and Will & Grace (NBC).
