Saturday Night Live and the sci-fi drama Westworld are at the top of the Emmy nominations with 22 bids each.

The long-running SNL received a wealth of awards for its cast, hosts and guest stars, including one to Alec Baldwin for his recurring portrayal of President Donald Trump.

Other leading nominees announced Thursday in Los Angeles include Feud: Bette and Joan and Stranger Things with 18 nominations and Veep with 17 bids. Big Little Lies and Fargo earned 16 nominations each; both shows have strong Canadian ties.

Big Little Lies was directed by Quebec's Jean-Marc Vallée while Fargo was shot in Alberta with a cast and crew of many Canadians.

Breakout network drama This is Us received 11 nods, including the first best-drama series for a broadcast network show since The Good Wife in 2011.
