Good grief! You wont believe how many Emmy award nominations has Game of Thrones!!!


After Netflix beat out HBO last year for total Emmy nominations, HBO returned to its usual dominant position in 2019, earning a whopping 137 total Emmy nominations, thanks to Game of Thrones’ final season. The network secured a total of 32 nominations for Game of Thrones, breaking the previous record held by NYPD Blue (26 nominations in 1994).

HBO’s other 105 nominations this year came from series like Barry (17 nominations) and Chernobyl (19 nominations). HBO also earned nearly three times as many nominations as the four traditional networks (ABC, NBC, Fox, and CBS) combined.

There’s no denying that Game of Thrones is a rare cultural juggernaut. More than 45 million people tuned in for the show’s final episodes, according to HBO. It’s logical that the Emmy voting body would honor the series, which shaped television culture more than almost any other series over the last decade.

And that comes in spite of how negatively Game of Thrones’ final season was received by both fans and critics. Mad Men and Breaking Bad were both significant and influential, but Game of Thrones turned appointment TV into a worldwide obsession all the way through its series finale.

That’s incredibly rare. But Game of Thrones’ time has come to an end, and this year’s Emmy nominations are a good chance to look at what comes next. HBO’s total nomination count (137 nominations) was followed by Netflix (117), NBC (58), and Amazon Prime Video (47).

Here’s a breakdown of nominations major networks received in 2018 and 2019, according to The Hollywood Reporter: HBO: 137 in 2019, 108 in 2018 (+29) Netflix: 117 in 2019, 112 in 2018 (+5) NBC: 58 in 2019, 78 in 2018 (-20) Amazon Prime Video: 47 in 2019, 22 in 2018 (+25) CBS: 43 in 2019, 35 in 2018 (+8) FX Networks: 32 in 2019, 50 in 2018 (-18) ABC: 26 in 2019, 31 in 2018 (-5) Hulu: 20 in 2019, 27 in 2018 (-7) Fox: 18 in 2019, 16 in 2018 (+2) Showtime: 18 in 2019, 21 in 2018 (-3) CNN: 17 in 2019, 10 in 2018 (+7) VH1: 14 in 2019, 12 in 2018 (+2) National Geographic: 13 in 2019, 17 in 2018 (-4) AMC: 11 in 2019, 1 in 2018 (+10) The narrative over the past few years has been that streaming is outpacing traditional TV networks, both premium and cable, at awards shows.

That might not be true just yet, but streaming is definitely seeing a steady increase in overall nominations.

The three big streaming companies — Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video — amassed 184 Emmy nominations this year, a 14 percent increase over last year’s 161 total nominations. And the four traditional networks saw an 8 percent decrease between 2018 (159 total) and this year (145).

This doesn’t account for cable networks like FX (which saw a major decrease), AMC (major increase) and HBO. While all data should be taken with a grain of salt, there’s no denying that as more networks transition to streaming, and companies like Netflix and Disney spend large amounts of money on original content, the more award shows will be dominated by streamers.

It’s been a while since a single show has dominated a year like Game of Thrones did in 2019. HBO is beginning to plot a way to fill that massive hole in its slate, while many other companies are planning to launch new streaming services with a nearly never-ending assortment of original series.

Amazon is working on a Lord of the Rings series; Disney has its upcoming Marvel shows, like Loki, and Star Wars’ The Mandalorian.

WarnerMedia is working on projects like a Dune series, and flooding even more money into HBO on the streaming end. At the same time, many of the series that have been regular Emmy nominees over the past decade are nearing the end of their lives. This is Us and Better Call Saul — two major shows that can compete with HBO, Amazon, and Netflix — only have so much time left.

The pool of workhorse Emmy shows will get smaller as more traditional networks focus on streaming (FX content on Hulu, for example, and HBO content on HBO Max) and Netflix pours money into developing bigger original series.

Game of Thrones’ end opens the door for the return of competitive, diverse award seasons beginning next year. The cultural juggernaut is gone. There will undeniably be another big series that grabs attention — as Emily VanDerWerff pointed out at Vox, “there’s always another huge TV show.

” The question is whether that next series will come from a traditional network like NBC, a prestigious cable division like AMC or from a streamer like Netflix or even Disney+.
