Emmys 2017: how to watch and what to expect

Emmys 2017: how to watch and what to expect”

For the past 17 years, HBO has received the most Emmy nominations of any television network. The last day to have aired is June 26, 2017, and Game of Thrones didn't even start airing until July 16, 2017, almost a month later, and three days after the Emmy nominations for this evening were formally announced to the public. So if one or two episodes aired after May 31, it'll be fine for this year, but if over half the season aired after May 31, it won't be nominated until next year. Luckily, some other very worthy shows did pick up a nomination, like Stranger Things, FEUD: Bette and Joan, and obviously, several HBO shows.

This is the first time since 2011 that "Game of Thrones" is not among the year's Emmy contenders.

There's also going to be a battle in the limited series categories.

Of course there is much to discuss: who had the best Emmys beauty?

Game of Thrones

New York-based McKelvey's agency, JohnXHannes, was honoured for an ad it created for web-hosting company Squarespace featuring John Malkovich. An impressive 24 Netflix programs were nominated in 2017, with the most nominations for Stranger Things (19), The Crown (13) and Master of None (eight). The Leftovers, for instance, was eligible for this year's awards, but it did not earn a nomination for Outstanding Drama Series, although Ann Dowd was nominated for Guest Actress in a Drama Series for the show.

The Primetime Emmy Awards 2017 are in full swing out in Los Angeles tonight, but the red carpet seems a little emptier than usual. You can also stream it on Foxtel Now.
