<pre><pre>HBO dominated the 2019 Emmy nominations, thanks to Game of Thrones

After Netflix defeated HBO last year for the total Emmy nominations, HBO returned to its usual dominant position in 2019 and earned no fewer than 137 total Emmy nominations, thanks to Game of Thrones" last season.

The network has received a total of 32 nominations Game of Thrones, break the previous record that is saved NYPD Blue (26 nominations in 1994). HBO & # 39; s other 105 nominations this year came from series such as 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.

That is undeniable Game of Thrones is a rare cultural moloch. More than 45 million people have signed up for the latest episodes of the show, according to HBO. It makes sense that the Emmy mood body would honor the series that formed more than almost any other television culture series the past ten years. And that is despite how negative Game of Thrones & # 39; last season was received by both fans and critics. Crazy men and Breaking Bad were both significant and influential, but Game of Thrones changed from appointment TV to a global obsession all the way through the series final. That is incredibly rare.

But Game of Thrones & # 39; the time has come to an end, and this year's Emmy nominations are a good chance to see what comes next. The total number of HBO nominations (137 nominations) was followed by Netflix (117), NBC (58) and Amazon Prime Video (47). Here is a breakdown of nominations that large networks received in 2018 and 2019, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

HBO: 137 in 2019, 108 in 2018 (+29)

The story of recent years was that streaming the traditional TV networks, both premium and cable, passed by at awards. That may not yet be the case, but streaming clearly sees a steady increase in total nominations. The three major streaming companies – Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video – have collected 184 Emmy nominations this year, an increase of 14 percent over the 161 nominations from last year.

And the four traditional networks saw an 8 percent decrease between 2018 (159 in total) and this year (145). This does not take into account cable networks such as FX (which saw a large decrease), AMC (large increase) and HBO. Although all data must be taken with a grain of salt, it is undeniable that as more networks switch to streaming, companies like Netflix and Disney spend a lot of money on original content, the more award shows are dominated by streamers.

It has been a while since a single show has dominated for a year Game of Thrones done in 2019. HBO is starting to figure out a way to fill that huge gap in the slate, while many other companies are planning to launch new streaming services with an almost infinite range of original series. Amazon is working on a Lord of the Rings series; Disney has its upcoming Marvel shows, such as Loki, and Star Wars" The Mandalorian. WarnerMedia is working on projects such as a Dune series and is depositing even more money in HBO at the streaming end.

At the same time, many of the series that have regularly been Emmy nominees in the last decade are approaching the end of their lives. This is us and You better call Saul – two important shows that can compete with HBO, Amazon and Netflix – have so much time left. The pool of workhorse Emmy shows will become smaller as more traditional networks focus on streaming (FX content on Hulu, and HBO content on HBO Max) and Netflix is ​​investing money in developing larger original series.

Game of Thrones & # 39; end opens the door for the return of competitive, diverse rewards that start next year. The cultural moloch is gone. There will undoubtedly be another major series that catches the attention – such as Emily VanDerWerff pointed it out Vox, "There is always a huge TV show again." The question is whether that next series will come from a traditional network such as NBC, a prestigious cable division such as AMC or from a streamer such as Netflix or even Disney +.
