Emmys: HBO/HBO Max Vanquishes Netflix by 1, 130-129, for 19th Record Season with Most of Any Network

Share

For the 19th time, HBO now coupled with HBO Max, set the Emmy Awards ablaze. It was tight this time. They beat Netflix by just 1, 130-129 (although I would have deducted 7 for the terrible “Allen vs. Farrow.”)

Netflix could have had more had something not gone wrong with “The Undoing.” It was a shock that the series, Nicole Kidman, and Donald Sutherland got no nods. Very surprising.

HBO picked up 15 noms just for “Hacks,” the best comedy series of the year. “Mare of Easttown,” the best limited series, got 16 by itself. So HBO is still in there fighting the good fight, staying in the lead on both cable and streaming.

Here is the full list:
