Share

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

And on Thursday, Yvonne Strahovski landed her first Emmy nomination for the role. He is also nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for "Saturday Night Live". And Bledel's "Gilmore" love interest Milo Ventimiglia is nominated for Best Drama Actor for "This is Us" for the second year in a row.

Last year, after "The Handmaid's Tale" helped Hulu break into the Emmy race in its biggest way yet, Craig Erwich, head of content at the streamer, revealed to Variety that their strategy of looking for shows that have "a big world, feel relevant and feel like television events" had paid off.
