No Comment 0 View

Tonight, radio will promote a jubilee of all things television. The 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, orderly by a Academy of Television Arts Sciences, will respect a biggest and best shows in TV in a past year (with a small assistance and campaigning from their particular networks, of course). Red runner coverage starts during 7PM ET on ABC, with a awards themselves starting during 8PM ET. You’ll be means to tide all live around ABC’s website or around its Android / iOS app — in all those cases, that’s going to need login certification from a TV provider.

Update: It has begun! Check out all a Emmy winners here!

While a crux of a module is to respect particular array and those who work on them, from a macro perspective (e.g. Game of Thrones and whichever American Horror / Crime Story Ryan Murphy did last), it’s also a possibility for powerhouse networks like HBO, FX, and Netflix to contest on a numbers diversion and try and shelve adult a many statues. As is a box flattering many each year, HBO leads with 94 nominations in all, with FX (56) and Netflix (54) trailing in second and third place:

Top 12 nominees by network (and change vs. 2015)

HBO – 94 (-32)

FX – 56 (+18)

Netflix – 54 (+20)

NBC –  41 (+0)

ABC –  35 (-7)

CBS –  35 (-6)

FOX –  29 (-6)

PBS –  26 (-3)

AMC –  24 (+0)

Showtime – 22 (+4)

Comedy Central – 17 (-8)

Amazon – 16 (+4)

Notably, HBO’s lead has been cut flattering drastically in preference of a other two, that in spin have surpassed all a promote networks. For Netflix to be in third place usually 3 years after a initial nomination is unequivocally impressive, and with a association stability to spend billions on strange content, it’s clearly anticipating to keep a trend going.

It’s also value mentioning that a numbers above embody both a vital nominations — i.e. a ones that are being televised tonight — and a some-more technical-focused Creative Arts Emmys, that were already given out final weekend. Specifically looking during tonight’s awards, HBO (40), FX (28), and Netflix (17) still browbeat a tip 3 spots.

I’m certain we have a lot of questions, so let’s get on with it:

What can we design tonight? Talk about a shows

There are 27 awards to give out tonight, all of that mangle down into one of 4 groups: comedy, drama, singular array / movie, or variety. Let’s speak about those:

Limited Series / Television Movies

Increasingly a many engaging difficulty both in terms of nominees and, frankly, a categorization, a singular array categories respect not usually shows with one-off runs (The Night Manager, Roots) though also repeated shows whose “plot” changes each year (American Horror Story, Fargo). Or infrequently it’s shows that usually do really few episodes like Luther and Sherlock, both of that usually had single-episode “specials” this year and were nominated for superb radio movie. It’s also a coolest category.

FX’s The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story has some-more nominations than any other uncover during tonight’s rite (13 — 22 including Creative Arts Emmys, that is usually one fewer than Game of Thrones). We wouldn’t be astounded to see it take a tip award, with a several behaving awards going to Fargo, The Night Manager, and Emmy-favorite Bryan Cranston (All a Way).


HBO’s magic-and-dragons-and-sex-and-violence frisk won final year’s tip honors, and frankly, we wouldn’t be astounded to see it win again. Where things could get engaging is Mr. Robot, USA Network’s dermatitis uncover from final year — generally for a best actor category, where Rami Malek seems to be favorite.


Last year a large comedy endowment went to HBO’s Veep. The 5 years before that, it went to Modern Family. Smart money’s on Veep to keep a new tradition alive in both best comedy and best singer for inhabitant value Julia Louis-Dreyfus. As for a behaving categories, we’d adore to see Amazon’s Transparent get some recognition.


The Daily Show ended a ancestral run with one final Emmy final year, and as distant as superb accumulation speak array go, we’d adore to see John Oliver’s successor apparent Last Week Tonight carry a torch. As for blueprint series, we wouldn’t be astounded if Key Peele won for a final season, though a difficulty feels like a toss-up between that and Inside Amy Schumer.

I wish some-more predictions! More!

Okay, okay, check out Vox’s square by Todd VanDerWerff. we determine with many of those.

I know we ask this each year but… a Creative Arts Emmys? Huh?

The Creative Arts Emmys, that were given out final year, respect a some-more technical, behind-the-scenes work (think: pretension cards, soundtracks, and special effects). Unsurprisingly, this year’s large leader was Game of Thrones, though there’s a some-more engaging story from that night: both Marvel and Oculus Story Studio won their first-ever Emmy Awards — a former for Jessica Jones (outstanding categorical pretension thesis music) and a latter for a hedgehog uttered by Elijah Wood (Henry, for superb interactive program).

I skipped a intro to this square and jumped down to a large titles, so usually tell me when and how to tide it


Red runner coverage starts during 7PM ET on ABC, with a awards themselves starting during 8PM ET. You’ll be means to tide all live around ABC’s website or around its Android / iOS app — in all those cases, that’s going to need login certification from a TV provider.

Last question: Is there a PDF with each fathomable bit of Emmy-related trivia that we can use to stir my Emmy amatory friends?
