Money talks and when your estimated spending this year on content runs to as much as $8 Billion you expect to get a few awards.

Netflix is in pole position to do just that after securing 112 nominations in this morning’s list of Emmy contenders in the US.

This is the first year that Netflix has overtaken HBO which despite Game of Thrones gathering the most nominations for a single show, dropped back from 111 nods to 108 this year.

Saturday Night Live and Westworld were just behind The saga of the Starks and Targaryen’s with 21 nominations each while A Handmaid’s tale came in with 20.

The 70th Emmy Awards will be broadcast live from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 17th.
