When Netflix snapped HBO's 17-year streak as Emmy nominations leader, more than bragging rights switched hands.

The most nominated show was HBO's "Game of Thrones" with 22, followed by NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and HBO's "Westworld".

Hulu scored 27 nominations from the Television Academy for the 70th annual primetime television awards, up from 18 a year ago, with 20 of those nominations for "The Handmaid's Tale".

Another streamed series, Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", earned 20 nominations and a chance to defend its title as best drama series at the 70th Primetime Emmy ceremony airing September 17 on NBC.

Netflix claiming the top spot at the awards this year isn't just about ousting HBO, it's a milestone for streaming services as a whole.
