Subscription services take the boot to network TV's face in massive Emmy wins

IN THE FACE

Subscription services have been growing in customer reach and quality over the past five years, with the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime bringing great content as well as HBO offering their programming as a standalone service. These shifting ways to be entertained has left a lot of the traditional sources scrambling to find their place in a changing world. After a commanding amount of wins for streaming and premium services during last night's Emmy Awards Show, it doesn't feel like these services are playing around anymore.

Outside of The Americans lead actor win and FX remaining the ruler of the Limited Series, all of the "major" awards went to either a streaming or premium subscription-based program. Don't even get me started on basic network TV either, outside of Saturday Night Live's variety sketch series win, basic cable got nothing in the major categories. They did pick up a few in guest spots but still, time to get with the times!

The big winner of the night was The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which took home a whopping six awards including outstanding comedy series, lead actress in a comedy, supporting actress in a comedy series, best writing for a comedy series, and best directing. There was a lot of speculation leading into this awards show as to who would fill the power vacuum left after long-time Emmy favorite Veep had ended, and I think we have our new queen.

The other big winners were The Assassination of Gianni Versace in the limited series category, and Game of Thrones which won outstanding drama, and supporting actor in a dramatic role. My personal favorite anxiety inducer Black Mirror took home outstanding writing for a limited series and outstanding television movie both for the episode "USS Callister."

One of the big snubs is the wildly loved and weird Twin Peaks return on Showtime which got nothing to show for their two nominations. I do hope David Lynch will be ok. Handmaid's Tale also got snubbed after receiving the most nominations this year while walking away with zero awards, a stark contrast to being last years big winner.

You can see more of the awards below with the winners marked in bold, and yes Rick and Morty won outstanding animated program for their Pickle Rick episode. I know, I'm disappointed in the world as well.
