In a telecast that ranked somewhere between uneventful to outright boring - the 2019 Emmy Awards provided few surprises. Some highlights were "Bandersnatch" winning for Television Movie (opening the door for awards validity for more unique streaming experiences), the few winners who chose to dedicate the limited time for their speeches to noble causes, and of course Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Billy Porter getting their much deserved rewards.
It’s also clear that there are only about 15 shows total on television right now. Oh wait just kidding we’re in the golden age of content for television and yet somehow only the same batch of shows are getting nominations. Something here is broken.
In the interest of full transparency I’ll fully admit that I’ve been very behind on my television watching this year. Therefore more often than not I’m making a best guess here informed by years of melting my brain in front of the ol’ boob tube. Also keep in mind some of these predictions are wishful thinking.
