Netflix Beat HBO In Emmy nominations For The First Time In History
Remember when Netflix was just a movie-streaming website? Things have certainly changed. For the first time, it’s beat HBO in the amount of Emmy nominations in a single year.
Netflix picked up 112 nominations on Thursday morning to usual awards season king HBO’s 108 — despite the return of Game of Thrones to eligibility with its seventh season. Last year, Netflix had 91 nominations to HBO’s 111.
NBC was third this year with 78 nominations and FX fourth with 50.
As far as show: Game Of Thrones was still tops with 22 nominations, followed by NBC’s Saturday Night Live (21), HBO’s Westworld (21), Hulu’s The Handmaids Tale (20) and FX’s Atlanta (18), Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (14) and HBO’s Barry (13).
Netflix’s nominations are impressive: The Crown picked up 13. Stranger Things got 12. GLOW got 10. Black Mirror got seven. Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown got five. Ozark got five. And on and on it went.
