HBO and Netflix lead this year’s Emmy nominations


Streaming services once again tip a list of this year’s Emmy nominations – another indicator of a change in how today’s consumers are examination TV. HBO, that has been accessible over-the-top given 2015 around HBO NOW, leads all networks with a sum of 110 nominations, and Netflix is tighten behind, with a sum of 91 nominations.

HBO’s lead is even some-more conspicuous this year since a flagship series, “Game of Thrones,” that won for best play a final dual years, didn’t make a cut this time around since of a after start date.

However, a network will still be competing in a play difficulty interjection to a newer uncover “Westworld,” that will go adult opposite other tip performers from streaming services, including 3 array from Netflix – “House of Cards,” “The Crown” and “Stranger Things.” And Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” brings another pennon into that race.

If “The Handmaid’s Tale” wins, it will be a initial time that Hulu as a network scores an Emmy for a strange programming, as well.

The usually promote network in a best play brew is NBC, with a assignment for “This is Us” – notable, given that a final time a promote network competed in this difficulty was in 2011, for CBS’s “The Good Wife.” Finally, wire TV network AMC’s “Better Call Saul” is opposed for a play crown, too.

HBO also leads with a many nominations for a uncover “Westworld,” that perceived 22 sum nods – a tie with NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

This is HBO’s 17th uninterrupted year of earning a many Emmy nominations, though that lead is narrowing, The New York Times points out. Two years ago, Netflix warranted 92 fewer nominations than HBO; this year, it has usually 19 fewer, a news notes. That demonstrates how Netflix’s large investment in a possess strange programming is profitable off for a streaming service. This year, Netflix skeleton to deposit $6 billion on strange content, and that array will stand “a lot” in a future, CEO Reed Hastings has said.

If Netflix wins in a play category, it will be a initial time ever that it gets to take home that much-coveted prize.

Streaming services are also competing for best comedy this year.

HBO (which we count as a streamer, given a accessibility to cord cutters) is on a house with nominations for “Silicon Valley” and “Veep,” that will go adult opposite Netflix’s “Master of None” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” FX’s “Atlanta”, and ABC’s “Black-ish” and “Modern Family” tighten out a category.

HBO is on a map for singular series, too, with “Big Little Lies” and “The Night of,” as good as for a TV cinema “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” and “Wizard of Lies.” Netflix’s entrance in this latter difficulty is “Black Mirror.”

And Hulu has a reason to get vehement this year, during last.

In further to a 13 nods for “The Handmaid’s Tale,” a initial strange documentary “The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years,” warranted 5 nominations, bringing a sum to 18. That’s adult from usually 2 nominations final year.

That also means Hulu is indeed forward of Amazon, that has 16 nominations – a same as final year. Amazon also didn’t acquire many nominations in vital categories over a Lead Actor curtsy for “Transparent” actor Jeffrey Tambor. But don’t cry too most for Amazon; a network is still doing good in terms of a accepting for a originals, interjection to a Oscar win for “Manchester by a Sea” – a first-ever hopeful for Best Picture. And it could lapse to a Oscars this year with “Wonderstruck.”

In further to a tip categories mentioned above, a actresses from a streaming services fill out scarcely each other Emmy category, too. Here’s a finish list of this year’s nominations, if we wish to see if your favorite actors got a nod. And a relapse by module and network is here.
