Emmy nominated shows available on Hotstar

A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature

The nominees for the 2017 Emmy Awards were announced on July 13, 2017 by Shemar Moore and Anna Chlumsky. An Emmy nomination is like a seal of quality in many ways and so the shows which do get nominated are bound to get some extra limelight in the weeks that follow. Two of the biggest omissions are Game of Thrones and the new season of Twin Peaks. But it has nothing to do with the quality that these two shows offer, for it is the May 1st submission deadline that’s to be blamed. The 69th Emmy Awards, to be aired on September 17, will be hosted by Stephen Colbert.

Despite Game of Thrones not making the cut, HBO showed its might with a total of 110 nominations—the highest among all networks—thanks to the likes of Big Little Lies, The Wizard Of Lies, The Night Of, Veep, and Westworld that topped the chart with a total of 22 nominations along with NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Next to Westworld, we have Netflix’ Stranger Things with 18 nominations and The Crown with 13 nominations. The other contenders for the Outstanding Drama Series are NBC’s This Is Us, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, AMC’s Better Call Saul, and Netflix’ House of Cards.

As per my calculations, along with HBO’s Westworld, the Netflix original show Stranger Things is one of the top contenders for the Emmy Awards. Big Little Lies (HBO) and Feud: Bette & Joan (FX) are arguably the strongest contenders for Outstanding Limited Series. As far as Outstanding TV movie is concerned, it’s mostly likely going to be a fight between The Wizard of Lies and Black Mirror: San Junipero. The Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy for this year should either go to Veep or Atlanta. But the thing with Emmys is that popularity seldom guarantees a win and so you better brace yourself for some surprises!

Naturally, there is a lot of buzz around the Emmy nominated shows. But where to watch them if you are in India? Now, Star Network’s popular streaming platform Hotstar is the home to many of the non-Netflix Emmy nominated shows.
