The news was not so good for Nicole Kidman at Thursday's Emmy nomination ceremony in Los Angeles.

"They follow our lead and they don't make us live inside a box either creatively or financially, and that is nearly unheard of among networks and movie studios", Levy told Reuters on Thursday.

Other actresses competing for the Supporting Actress award include Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) and Thandie Newton (Westworld).

"Saturday Night Live, " riding high in the ratings with its relentless pillorying of the Trump administration, was rewarded with 21 nods. The Handmaid's Tale star Samira Wiley and New Amsterdam star Ryan Eggold were on hand to announce the nominations to the world on July 12 from the Wolf Theatre at the Television Academy's Saban Media Center.

"Game of Thrones" may lead the pack with 22 Emmy nods this year, including one for Outstanding Drama Series, but Clarke and Harrington weren't among the recipients.

"Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert" was also showered with praise, as was "The Handmaid's Tale's" supporting cast, coming off a just-concluded second season that gave them an opportunity to shine. She wasn't nominated for an Emmy in 2017, either.

In the comedy categories, hip-hop themed FX show "Atlanta" is up against Amazon's (AMZN.O) "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", ABC's (DIS.N) "black-ish", "GLOW", "Curb Your Enthusiasm", quirky comedy "Barry", tech comedy "Silicon Valley" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".

Lead actress drama takes last year's victor Elisabeth Moss for "The Handmaid's Tale" with Claire Foy, "The Crown"; Tatiana Maslany, "Orphan Black"; Sandra Oh, "Killing Eve"; Keri Russell, "The Americans"; and Evan Rachel Wood for "Westworld".

The 70th annual Primetime Emmys will air September 17 from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
