It’s everyone’s favorite time of the year: Emmy nominations day! As always, EW has combed through the nominee list to pull out some of the most interesting facts — from the show with the most nominations to whether or not any of our favorite small-screen superheroes received some love from the esteemed Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Read on below for some numbers:

112: Nominations for Netflix, the most of any content provider. This is the first year that HBO didn’t have the most nominations, coming in with only 108 nods.

78: Nominations for NBC, the most of all the broadcast networks. CBS came in second place with 34 nominations, and ABC followed up with 31.

1: Nomination for The Good Fight, which received a nod in the Original Music and Lyrics category for the animated short “High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” The CBS All Access drama was egregiously snubbed in the major categories.

16: Nominations for Atlanta, the most of any comedy this year. 30 Rock still holds the record for most nominations for a comedy in a single year with the 22 it received in 2009.

2: Nominations for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which NBC saved from cancellation in May.
