LOS ANGELES (AP) -- HBO has reclaimed its throne as king of Emmy nominations.

The cable network received a whopping 137 nominations Tuesday morning, riding the dragon wings of "Game of Thrones," which received a record 32. The nominations include best actress in a drama for Emilia Clarke and best actor in a drama for Kit Harington.

HBO's "Chernobyl" and "Barry" also brought in big numbers of nominations.

Netflix ended HBO's 17-year reign last year to win the most nominations but was bumped to second this year with 117.

NBC was a distant third with 58 nods, a figure that led all broadcast networks. CBS had 43 and ABC 26.

Amazon's Prime Video was second to Netflix among streamers with 47 nominations.
