One of the most awaited awards down West, the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards AKA Emmys 2019, which honours the best of Television, is back with a bang! It’s slated to happen over this weekend in the USA amid much extravaganza. And, in a first, this edition of Emmys’ nominations has been widely dominated by HBO’s popular show – Game of Thrones. The fantasy fiction premiered its finale season recently and it didn’t meet the audiences’ expectations; however, this doesn’t seem to have affected their craze as Game of Thrones has received a massive 32 nominations in various categories including Best Actor in the Lead/Supporting, Best Actress in the Lead/ Supporting and much more.
Oh, and FYI, we also have our Sacred Games Season 2 nominated for the Best Drama Series Award. Other than that, Anurag Kashyap’s Netflix film Lust Stories has also been nominated for the Best Mini-Series, while Lust Stories actress Radhika Apte has received the nomination for Best Actress-Lust Stories.
