Netflix ends HBO's 17-year Emmy nominations streak

13 Jul 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

For 17 years straight, HBO has dominated the Emmy Awards as the most nominated TV network. This year, Netflix tops the charts with a total of 112 nominations compared to HBO’s 108.

It took just 5 years

House of Cards was released in 2013 and marked the official beginning of Netflix’s quest to conquer TV. The show also won the first Emmy Award for an “online only” TV show. It has taken the company just five years to go from a streaming service with mostly licensed content to an original content powerhouse.

The Television Academy acknowledges Netflix’s wild success. The company has raked in 112 Emmy nominations, which the highest amount at this year’s awards show. Netflix’s The Crown and Stranger Things are nominated for best drama series, while Glow and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt are nominated for best comedy series.

 Stranger Things

HBO has been the most nominated TV network for 17 years straight but this year it came in behind Netflix with a total of 108 nominations. HBO’s Game of Thrones and Westworld are nominated for best drama series, and are the two top nominated TV shows across all categories.

- “This year’s nominations continue to represent increased diversity and inclusion in front of the camera. And, there is a wealth of new and returning programs that reflect so many of today’s critical issues,” said Hayma Washington, Academy Chairman.

Hulu received 27 nominations, including many for The Handmaid’s Tale, and Amazon received 22, including a best comedy nod for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. NBC received a total of 78 nominations. Apple received a single nomination for its Carpool Karaoke series but the company is currently increasing its involvement in the space so we expect to them to feature more prominently in the future.

So, where do things go from here? Can Netflix keep its focus as it continues to pump more money into production of original content? The company is expected to spend $12-13 billion on content this year alone – more than any other TV or film studio.

HBO can, of course, still beat Netflix when the actual winners are announced. That will happen on September 17, 2018, when the Television Academy reveals the Emmy winners.
