Between Game of Thrones, Chernobyl and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, the winner’s circle at the 2019 Emmy Awards could look a lot different than it did just five years ago.
The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences will once again honor television’s best this Sunday, but the list of nominees underscores just how much the landscape has changed in a short time. Traditional networks trailed far behind streaming companies in total nominations. Netflix and Amazon notably spent big to woo voters.
The Emmys generally mark the kickoff to the fall television season. Once the best of the previous year are honored, the fight begins anew for next year’s Emmy Awards. It’s also must see TV for many people, who root for their favorite shows and actors and debate the fashions of the evening
