Netflix set an Emmy record for the most network nominations in a single year with 160 nods in 2020, but two years later it finds itself in a very different place. Not only is it losing subscribers, it's losing its Midas touch at the Emmys — down to 104 nominations this year, compared to a combined 140 nominations for HBO and HBO Max.
This week on the Primetimer Podcast, our panel takes a close look at Netflix's diminishing stature at the Emmys and what it means for the streamer as it struggles to keep a leg-up on its many streaming competitors. Also, a little tweak that could make the Emmy Awards better.
This podcast is brought to you by the new Primetimer Guide to Streaming TV. It's an old-fashioned cure for the modern headache of endless scrolling. More info at primetimerguide.com.
