The big question after watching the Emmys every year is, “How can I watch all of these award-winning TV shows?” Here is your answer, in no particular order.
The stunning FX freshman 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 first season is currently streaming on Hulu.
“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 entire 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 can be watched on Netflix, where it is an original show for the streaming service.
“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.
