Emmy Awards

The 2019 Emmy Awards ceremony was held on Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and for the first time in its 71 year history, there was no host. An animated Homer Simpson, everyone’s favorite TV dad, tried to open the annual TV event, though that was short-lived when a giant piano fell on him. This left Anthony Anderson scrambling to put things together and Bryan Cranston to talk about the history of TV.

Winners included Game of Thrones, Fleabag, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Check out the full list of nominees with winners in bold here below.

2019 Emmy Award Nominations

The Emmy Awards honor the best creative teams and the performers in television. This year saw the end of an era for Game of Thrones, while other miniseries dramas like Chernobyl, The Marvelous Ms. Maisel, and When They See Us clearly exceeded our expectations.

Though the final season of Game of Thrones may have been very polarizing, it didn’t seem to faze the television academy, as it awarded HBO’s highest-rated drama with a record-setting 32 nominations. HBO’s miniseries Chernobyl received 19 nominations, and their comedy Veep snagged two nominations. Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Fleabag also have nominations of their own, with the former having 20, and the latter having four – unfortunately Andrew Scott got snubbed. And Netflix’s When They See Us is the streaming site’s biggest winner. They have 16 nominations.

Check out the list of the major nominees for the 2019 Emmy Awards below.

Indiana Jones Crystal Skull Steven Spielberg Harrison Ford

When Roma took home three Oscars (Best Director, Best Foreign Language Film, and Best Cinematography), it showed that Netflix was able to be more than just a streaming service. And with other services like Hulu and Amazon also producing and releasing their own films, it’s very likely other studios are going to have to compete with them during awards season. But with the times changing, there are those who would like things to remain the same. At least, in terms of how people should see movies and categorize them.

One of those people is Steven Spielberg. You know, the guy who gave us films like E.T., Jurassic Park, and Schindler’s List. The director isn’t exactly a fan of Netflix’s approach to releasing films, and will now be taking his grievances to the Academy this coming April to talk about how streaming and traditionally released films should be treated. More on the report here below.

Netflix had an outsized presence at the 2019 Oscars despite their unconventional way of distributing films.(image Courtesy of Vulture.com)

The 2019 Oscars or Academy Awards were like no other. There was a superhero film up for Best Picture and a superhero film actually won for Best Animated Feature. Among top films to come away a winner this year was an Alfonso Curaón film named Roma. It scored an industry first in that despite the fact that it was available for viewers to stream on Netflix even as it was still playing in theaters, Roma was not only a serious contender for competitive awards like Best Director and Best Picture, it actually won three of the four awards it was nominated for.
