The big question after watching the Emmys every year is, “How can I, the humble viewer, watch all of this incredible TV, even when the season for said TV is over?” Here is your answer, in no particular order.
“Atlanta” The stunning FX comedy picked up two of three awards for which it was nominated. Not only did Donald Glover walk away with the lead actor in a comedy trophy, he became the first African-American human being to win Outstanding Director of a Comedy Series. The entire first (and thusfar only) season is currently streaming on Hulu. Seriously, run, do not walk. This show is spectacular.
“Veep” “Atlanta” lost out to “Veep” for Best Comedy, while Julia Louis-Dreyfus took a record sixth Emmy for playing the same character in her role as Selina Meyer on “Veep.” You can see the show’s whole blessed run on HBOGo.
“Master of None.” Writer and actress Lena Waithe also made history as the first black woman to win an Emmy for comedy writing. She co-wrote the "Thanksgiving" episode of "Master of None" with series co-creator and star, Aziz Ansari. The show is Netflix original -- catch it there.
“The Handmaid’s Tale” Hulu’s adaptation of the iconic dystopian novel took both Outstanding Drama, supporting actress in a drama for the terrifying Ann Dowd and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for Elizabeth Moss, the first time this has happened for a streaming series. Watch it on Hulu, obviously.
“This is Us” The great Sterling K Brown took home Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama for his role as the adopted son of a complicated couple on the sleeper hit show. The entire first season can be seen on NBC.com.
“Big Little Lies” and “The Night Of” The first, a canny adaptation of a complex novel, won a host of awards. It won Oustanding Limited Series, Nicole Kidman won for actress in a limited series, while Laura Dern won best supporting actress and Alexander Skarsgard
The second is a haunting crime story; Rez Ahmed won for actor in a limited series. Watch both on HBOGo.
“This Week with John Oliver.” Once, “The Daily Show” was required viewing. Now, it is “This Week with John Oliver,” which won for Variety Talk Series. It is also on HBOGo.
