The SAG Awards have entered the upside down. Netflix’s “Stranger Things” is an early favorite at this year’s ceremony, as the 80s throwback thriller scored three nominations – tied with Netflix’s “The Crown” and FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” for the most of any TV program. (“Game of Thrones” and “Westworld” also received three if the stunt category is included.)

The SAG Awards also uniquely honors full TV comedy and drama ensembles, and in recent years has been lauded for honoring a diverse crop of male and female actors. That streak continued on Wednesday morning with nods for a diverse mix of performers – including this year’s big breakout, Sterling K. Brown, who earned nominations in both drama (“This Is Us”) and limited series (“The People v. O.J. Simpson”) categories.

On Twitter, Brown got emotional: “I love what I do so much, and to be recognized by my peers in this way is very difficult for me to process right now – but very humbling and very cool.” Watch below:

And just as the Golden Globes and Emmy Awards have discovered ABC’s critically acclaimed “Black-ish,” the SAG Awards also recognized the show this year. “Black-ish” was among a handful of shows to receive two nominations, along with “Grace and Frankie,” “House of Cards,” “Modern Family,” “The Night Of,” “Orange is the New Black,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Veep.”

Meanwhile, thanks to the dominance of shows like “Stranger Things” and “The Crown,” Netflix led all networks with 17 nominations, followed by HBO with 13. ABC (5) and FX (3) also received multiple nods. TV actors landing their first individual nominations include Riz Ahmed, Millie Bobby Brown, Sterling K. Brown, Tituss Burgess, Claire Foy, Audra McDonald and Courtney B. Vance.
