This week, the Water Cooler gang looks at the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Drama races. Will Game of Thrones rule the day? Can any series take its crown? Dracarys?
We’re wrapping up our deep diver into the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards. This week, we’re looking at the Drama races. At the start of the Emmy season, everyone assumed that HBO’s Game of Thrones final season would take home everything. And then the season premiered to both record ratings and intensely divisive public opinion. Is the final season still on track to win Drama Series? Will the record-setting 32 nominations translate into unexpected wins in the performance races?
Plus, we have this weekend’s 2019 Creative Arts Emmy Awards to guide us. Who took home the most? What were the big surprises? What’s up with those Guest performance wins? We discuss it all with special guest Team ADTV member Jalal Haddad.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
