After a one-year absence from contention, HBO’s Game Of Thrones returned with a vengeance to the Emmy scene Thursday, scoring a leading 22 nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, including a nod for best drama series.

Last year’s drama winner, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, was nominated again for the prize, along with Netflix’s The Crown and Stranger Things; NBC’s This Is Us; HBO’s Westworld; and FX’s The Americans.

Game Of Thrones won for outstanding drama series in 2015 and 2016 but wasn’t eligible for the 2017 award because its only new episodes airing during the eligibility period were part of the body of work considered for its 2016 victory.
