Emmys 2019: Winners and Nominees

Check out the full list of Emmy Award 2019 nominations here. It's a good year for dragons, assassins, and nuclear meltdowns.

Emmy 2019 Nominations

As someone on an HBO show once said: “The king stay the king.” After briefly losing its title in 2018 as the network to receive the most Emmy nominations, HBO is back at the 2019 Emmys with a vengeance. 

HBO leads all content providers in 2019 with an astounding and record-breaking 137 total nominations. That number is, of course, buoyed by the equally astonishing 32 nominations garnered for Game of Thrones‘ final season. HBO’s numbers are the most eye popping but there are some other surprises throughout this year’s nominations. 

Schitt’s Creek and Fleabag are unlikely but still welcome introductions to the Emmys with both garnering multiple nominations including nods for Outstanding Comedy Series. Last year’s Outstanding Comedy winner The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will welcome stiff competition in what is possibly the most competitive category of any this year. 

The 71st annual Emmy award presentation is underway! Follow along with the winners and nominees here.
