70th Annual Emmy Winners List

Last night the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences presented the 70th annual Emmy Awards. After the Creative Arts Emmy’s HBO went home with a mountain of Emmy’s thanks to Game of Thrones and their winning streak continued tonight. HBO took home a total of 6 awards, including much deserved wins for Henry Winkler (Barry) and Thandie Newton (Westworld).

Overall the big winners here were the cable and streaming sites. With Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO, and FX taking the majority of the awards. SNL and The Oscars were the only winners featured on one of the big networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, etc.). The cable and Streaming groups have been gaining more and more awards as of recent years, and you have to wonder when the networks will start to take note. Most of these wins are thanks to taking risks on series and projects that would usually be rejected by the networks. As the next few years play out it’ll be interesting to see if the networks decide to start taking risks again to start winning more awards.

You can read the full list of nominees and winners below, with winners listed in bold.
