It’s the 70th edition of the Primetime Emmy Awards this year and while some will be up to watch the ceremony in the early hours of Tuesday morning – fawning over who’s wearing what and who’s arriving with whom and waiting for some off-colour jokes from the hosts – this years awards also represent a number of milestones in television history. Foremost of these is the dominance of the streaming services, which have so radically changed television over the last few years. Netflix supersedes cable rivals HBO for the first time with 112 nominations to HBO’s 108. This gives the streaming giant a good chance to take home its first coveted award for outstanding drama series, won last year by rival streaming service Hulu for The Handmaid’s Tale. However, HBO still has a number of reliable winners in its stable including Game of Thrones and Westworld.
