Netflix led all television networks with eight nominations Thursday, besting traditional awards-season beast HBO by one nod. Just as significant were advances made by Amazon and Hulu. The former drew five nominations, following last year’s first nods and wins for “Transparent.” The latter netted its first nomination, for the Jason Reitman-produced comedy series “Casual.”
Together, the three streaming services drew 14 nominations — five more than the commercial broadcast networks combined.
Congrats Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Video. Quality coupled with a better experience at a lower cost.
