2019 Emmy Awards nominations: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Veep,’ ‘Schitt’s Creek’ lead the pack

WATCH: The 71st annual Emmy Awards nominations are announced

A A

Television’s biggest night — the Emmy Awards — is fast approaching, and it’s been a big year.

Story continues below

We saw the end of juggernaut Game of Thrones, political comedy Veep and long-lasting fan-favourite The Big Bang Theory, and we saw the ever-rising spectre of Netflix dominate the TV landscape. Truly the medium is changing, and we’re bearing witness to evolving tastes, themes and approaches on the small screen.

Will it come down to recognition for the ends of these series, or will it not matter? We’ll have to see on award night. It’s a near-guarantee to see wins by HBO’s Chernobyl and Sharp Objects, and perhaps buzzy shows Fleabag and Killing Eve, but it all remains to be seen.

Thrones slashed its way to a record-setting 32 Emmy nominations Tuesday for its eighth and final season. The bloodthirsty saga’s total eclipsed the all-time series record of 27 nods earned by NYPD Blue in 1994.

The showing by Game of Thrones led HBO back to dominance over Netflix, which bumped it last year from its longtime Emmy dominance.
