“Game of Thrones” Scores 32 Noms; “The Good Place” and More: 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards Nominees

Nothing against past “ages,” but saying we live in “The Golden Age of Television” (cable, streaming etc.) is not only a dramatic understatement but also pretty much a given – almost a cliche – at this point. Today, shows that are forgotten about and slow-die on the vine are the same shows that probably would’ve thrived and enjoyed multi-season runs. There is so much content out there that we don’t envy the job those who have to vote on nominations for this year’s 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards have – but it’s a job they accomplished on Tuesday when the full least of nominees was revealed – ranging from HBO‘s Game of Thrones to NBC‘s The Good Place… and so much more!
